Bekannt und gewürdigt für ihre kritische Mundartdichtung findet Annemarie Regensburger auch in diesen berührenden autobiografischen Erinnerungen eine unmittelbare, vom Dialekt geprägte und doch sehr klangvolle Sprache um auf ein entbehrungsreiches Leben zurückzublicken und gegen Sprachlosigkeit, gesellschaftliche Missstände, überkommene Moralvorstellungen das Wort zu erheben.
