| The Woman
Who Lived Between the Walls (I Didn't Want Much from a
Man, But I Asked the Wrong Man For It) is the latest publication
by Pauline M. Brown, a South Carolina poet and storyteller who
writes to communicate her compassion for people, her respect for the
past, her concern for the future, and her reverence for God.
An autobiography with allegorical overtones, The
Woman Who Lived Between the Walls recounts the many harsh and
unexpected trials and tribulations that one woman had to overcome in
her thirty-year journey toward self-understanding and
self-acceptance. Mrs. Brown's religious faith provided the support
and consolation that she needed in order to face her life with
courage, and her book is a testimony to that faith.
