This woman is amazing! She has a unique ability to capture the essence of her life and share it in a way that makes me feel she's right in the room with me. I bought this book to send to a friend who has recently become a music therapist and thought I would read it first. So glad I did. It's good to know there are people like Deforia Lane in this world.
