This is the story of Mareia Dondi. This story begins in the late thirties. Mareias was raised by her grandfather and grandmother. Her grandfather was a gangster and a murderer; he killed many men. He made a fortune during the Second World War. Mareia witnessed some of these deaths, as you will find out when you read this book. I started writing when I was forty-four years old. I have never wrote anything before. At the time, I didn't have a typewriter. I wrote everything with a pencil and paper. I worked on this book off and on for forty years. I had very little education. What I learned about writing, I learned by reading stories to find out where periods and commas were. I taught myself how to read with an old worn-out dictionary. When computers came out, I saw that a person could write, and if they made an error, they could erase it and start all over. So I bought one and typed out my story. This is my first book I wrote, and now I have eight books and a book of country boy poetry. Its guaranteed to make you laugh or cry. So I hope you enjoy my story. Thank you, and may God bless you.
