An illustrated intermediate-level reader.  The first title in the series Peppercorn's American Lives.

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).
