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.
About the Author
In 1968, Mrs. Brown began writing love letters every day to her husband, who was serving in the Vietnam War, and she has been writing steadily ever since that time. She loves to write, has five hundred pen pals, and has composed more than five hundred poems. In the thirty years since the Vietnam War ended, she has had dozens of changes to endure and trials to overcome. As she looks back over her life, however, she gives God the glory for making her a strong-minded and self-sufficient woman.
Although Pauline Brown and her husband took different roads in life, still they remained friends. According to Mrs. Brown, “Life is short, and only God knows everything. Now I have a new life in Christ, and to God be the glory. Thanks be to Him and to each of you.”
