It was sad a sad story. Ray was such a inspiring person though his story was really sad. I would have liked to have read more about Doe. Reunited as adults it was nice to see them together again. I felt for them throughout the book. A must read.

This story actually made me tear up at a few different moments. I love a book that gets me emotionally involved. This did NOT disappoint. It's not one of my favorites, at time I felt it was a bit slow, but I will say that after reading this, I do have a sort of respect and love for this author, and find myself wanting to read more :)

Doe Ray Me is not only an inspirational journey of the lives of three siblings from Downpatrick, it is an inspirational journey for life itself.
Written from Me’s perspective the book is a rollercoaster of emotions tinged with laugher, sadness and the usual trials and tribulations that all families go through on a regular basis which makes it easily relatable to the reader.
At times there will be tears at the humour, tears as each character’s story unfolds and anger how the system can let down and neglect some of the most vulnerable people in modern society.
Each chapter starts and ends with a motivating and thought provoking quote as Me courageously meets the challenges of life head on.
Like all journeys whether literally or metaphorically there are bumps in the road on the way but Me addresses these with brutal honesty connecting with the audience by being open and sincere.
While Me is on a soul searching voyage from childhood to motherhood and all in between the greatest triumph of the book is, it subconsciously invites the reader to embark on their own personal journey of development and enlightenment.
A compelling read from cover to cover, would highly recommend purchasing this book.
