    Book details

A Little Girl in a Big Hat' is the real story of a young girl born into poverty and her struggle through life into womanhood. The author uses the hat as a metaphor for the different stages and experiences she went through in life, and as it applies to people's lives in general. From childhood through adolescence and into adulthood we all find ourselves wearing different hats. This is a fascinating story of the different hats worn by a young girl who had a very demanding, and at times, difficult life. She shares her experiences up to the present day and encourages the reader to reflect on the question, Have you found your perfect hat, or are you still searching for it?

Rose Gegner was born in 1966 in the Philippines and raised on the island of Cebu. She came from very humble beginnings in a country that had little to offer a poor young girl. However, she rose from hardship and despair and went on to live a very fascinating and fulfilling life. She wrote this book with the hope of inspiring other young people who may find themselves today as she was then. Rose is married to Bruce Gegner, a career Airman in the United States Air Force. They have been together for over 22 years and have a son named Lance. Together they have lived and travelled all around the world, and those experiences are what have made Rose reflect on life and the many different challenges and opportunities it has brought. She and Bruce now live in Okinawa, Japan, and don't know where life will take them next. But Rose isn't concerned, because the future is just another adventure waiting to be had, as was her past about which she writes.

    This is a touching story of how a young girl struggled with poverty while growing up and created a life of happiness for herself. She wears many hats as she moves through different stages of her life. Her determination and strength is to be admired. The book leaves you wondering about the "hats" you have worn in your life!

    This is a great book about finding yourself and your "hat" in life. How many hats of what kind have you worn in your life? How did those hats shape who you are? Great book about finding answers to these questions and about finding your best potential in life.

    I enjoyed the book very much. Aspiring story of a little girl, now a woman, how she struggled through life and how she fought all the odds and managed to grab a piece American dream. We could all learn something from her life story. Great book -- I highly recommend it.
