Book Review: How I Got Here: A Memoir By Ceil Lucas

How I Got Here: A Memoir By Ceil Lucas

How I Got Here: A Memoir
is a memoir of the life of Ceil Lucas, an Arizona native who spent most of her childhood in countries other than the United States. It gives us a glimpse into her childhood in Guatemala and Italy, but also the depths of her family’s history here in the United States.

Though I have never left the United States, I could connect to Ceil on several occasions. Like my own family, Ceil’s family was living in what would become the US long before it became the US. Her people lived out their dashes in the same areas as our people did.

She talks of things that were going on in the world at the time, and specifically the US, of which the school children were not aware. She shares snippets of moments with her parents, interactions with others, going between countries and languages, and some of the confusing and funny moments that occurred due to her multicultural upbringing. She expresses her lack of motivation in the realm of religion as well.

Though it started off slowly for me, I ended up enjoying the book very much. I especially enjoyed the apricot tree story. In my life, it was a forsythia bush. You’ll have to read it to understand why this made me smile and wince at the same time.

There are minimal uses of profanity and no graphic intimacy scenes. It is a very well-written and interesting story. I give How I Got Here: A Memoir 5 stars.
