This captivating and detailed piece tells the story of an American girl with Scottish roots named Cynthia. In this diary-like memoir, Cynthia takes you through her mostly abusive but sometimes beautiful childhood that turns into an even more tragic but still sometimes beautiful adulthood. Follow along on this journey with her as she takes readers through the twists and turns of her friendships, family members, lovers, jobs, and a secret heritage that no one seems to know about.
This shocking and captivating read is set up like a journal with entries from the author that contain dates, times, places, and even images making this an authentic read. The author manages to weave her experiences, adventures, tragedies, and love all in about 150 pages. Cynthia Gunn takes us on the crazy journey that is her life, and if it’s anything like the writing, it truly was a chaotic love story to herself. Jumping around and going off topic sometimes, you can see the passion and fever that Cynthia was writing within every word. The author speaks directly to the reader, and I can sense her heart and the truth that lies in these pages.
I AM WHY THEY KILLED DIANA The Secret of The Red String… is Cynthia’s story and is a fascinating and intriguing account. However, she jumps from one subject to the next and then back to the other, sometimes making it a little difficult for me to keep up with it all. Nevertheless, I feel this is a style choice, and combined with the author’s passion and dedication to her history, it works. I would recommend this riveting read to those who enjoy history, drama, and memoirs, as this book has it all.
