 About the Book 

Martha Baker was a very average Midwestern girl. She wrote in her journal nearly every day of her life beginning at the age of nine. Her life changed directions many times but she always stayed true to her journal. Some people find it hard to denyMoreMartha Baker was a very average Midwestern girl. She wrote in her journal nearly every day of her life beginning at the age of nine. Her life changed directions many times but she always stayed true to her journal. Some people find it hard to deny their nature. Martha found it impossible. Her inner conflicts and tortured decisions affected her life far more than events happening in the world around her.Author Thomas Isaac Franklin served as both editor of Marthas journals and writer of this chronicle of her early life. All of the most fantastic events and deeply felt emotions in the book came directly from her journals. Her entries were often graphic, uncensored, and raw. They are intended for mature readers.Franklin had to supplement the sometimes-sparse journal entries with research. He interviewed Marthas relatives, friends, and noteworthy characters that appear in her journals. He found it necessary to expand the least descriptive portions of the journals to add imagery, form, and continuity to his writing.As you open Marthas Journals: Book One, you will be privy to her deepest held thoughts and desires. She will tell you secrets she would never verbalize to even her closest friends. This narrative follows Marthas life from birth to womanhood. You will accompany her as she explores her mind, body, and desires like few woman could or would.Read the first three chapters of Marthas story online at Xlibris.com
