Author, Thriving in the Care of Many Mothers
I must admit that I couldn’t put down Jayne’s memoir. It was so riveting that I raced through it the first time in three days, staying up till the wee hours to finish it. This is a testimony of Jayne’s talent and skills in story-telling, an attribute most likely handed down by her mother. Her mother’s story paralleled hers and was an integral part of the book, often influencing how Jayne made
subsequent life-changing decisions.
I found myself waking up in the middle of the night just to read another chapter. Beautifully written, the life story of Jayne is told through dancing words that vividly awoke my imagination. As I progressed through the chapters, my emotions ranged from those of tears to smiles and giggles. Jayne Lisbeth, her experiences in life, and the courage she has shown to take back her life and identity is an inspiration to all women.
This book dives into the depths of Ms. Lisbeth’s heart and soul. After starting the book I felt that it was geared to women but as I continued to read, it became clear that the men in this story molded the Jayne of today. As a man with a strong feminine side, I found it incomprehensible that the men in Ms. Lisbeth’s life were stereotypes of the mental abuser. This is partly a cautionary tale for men as well as a tale of the metamorphosis of a person from what I consider a victim to a strong, powerful, confident woman. I will not call Bryant a savior but a catalyst that helped form today’s Jayne. A really great read that gets my five star recommendation.
An incredibly honest and touching memoir of a feminist battling the wrenching challenges life throws her way while struggling with her irrational inner demons that continually whisper, she is somehow guilty. It is a wonderfully written story with a message every woman can relate to!
There were times when Jayne’s book, Writing In Wet Cement, was so true to
events that her words gave me flashbacks. This book is Jayne, her heart and so
many years of her life. Jayne’s experiences amazed me. Traveling into her life, I
had no idea of the many events she went through. I’m happy she’s here to tell
the world. Writing In Wet Cement is a great book and I’ve loved every page.
Jayne has opened the world for others to explore!
