Summary
In 1990, Jo Rowling was sitting on a train when she began to envision the story of a young wizard. She raced home to capture her ideas in a notebook creating the first few pages of Harry Potter. For years Rowling held fast to the dream of publishing her work, but tumultuous events and poverty made it nearly impossible even to finish writing the story. Little did she know, her "quirky little book" would create a worldwide literary phenomenon, monopolizing the top slot on the New York Times Best Seller list and making her one of the richest women in the world. Readers will find themselves spellbound by the life journey of the woman behind the biggest publishing sensation of our time
