A Letter to My Son

Kim S.

A Letter to My Son by Kim S.A Letter to My Son copyright © 2004, 2009 by Kim S. All rights reserved. A few people have asked me, "Is this book an autobiography? It sure sounds like you."

I saw myself as a victim in life, stemming from a family tragedy that occurred when I was a teenager;...
