Maid (Land) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
(Starred Review) [H]eartfelt and powerful debut memoir…. Land’s love for her daughter (“We were each other’s moon and sun”) shines brightly through the pages of this beautiful, uplifting story of resilience and survival. 
Publishers Weekly


[V]ivid and visceral yet nearly unrelenting memoir…. Land has perhaps succeeded in having her story told by virtue of her eventual triumph in escaping the grind of poverty. Her journey offers an illuminating read that should inspire outrage, hope, and change. —Janet Ingraham Dwyer, State Lib. of Ohio, Columbus
Library Journal


(Starred Review) [D]etailed and insightful…. Some of the most memorable scenes recount the shaming Land received when using the food stamps to purchase groceries.… An important memoir that should be required reading for anyone who has never struggled with poverty.
