In Why My Heart Aches, Nina Yates tells the story of her early life in Korea, of the harsh treatment she received and how she survived a difficult childhood.
"No matter how hard I tried to please my father he was never satisfied. It was such a horrible feeling. I felt lonely and rejected and not accepted for what I was. I started to dream that some day I would get married. I would be so good to my children. I would never beat them like my father did to me."
An inspiring autobiography written when Nina was a student at Read / Write / Now in Springfield, MA. Illustrated with photos from Nina's early life.
Her story is continued in Growing Up Dreaming and Never the Same (100-0031). The four books of Nina's Story are available as a set at the reduced price of $25.00 (100-0034).
