Loving for Crumbs is comprised of stories written by women about a time when they were willing to "love for crumbs." Release of the anthology is expected mid-August in print and for Kindle.
"The Crumb Gatherer" is a look into my attempts as a child to persuade my mother to affirm that she truly loved me.
Jonna Ivin is the author of Will Love for Crumbs, a stunning memoir of her own struggle with loving and being loved.
Jonna, thank you for finding my story worthy of inclusion in Loving for Crumbs.
