Norma Budden currently resides with her three children and grandboy in Nunavut, one of three territories located in Arctic Canada. Having been her home for nearly two decades, Norma has grown used to living as part of a minority amongst the Inuit people.
Norma enjoys outdoor living though she can never seem to get enough of spending time in the great outdoors. She works as an Administration Manager for The North West Company and, in her spare time, tries her best to keep up with her writing endeavours which include, but are not limited to, her website and multiple blogs.
Reading, traveling and photography are some of Norma’s greatest pleasures though she also enjoys time spent in the kitchen creating recipes and baking.
In time, it is Norma’s hope that she will be immersed in the writing industry full-time, focussing the majority of her time on the written word.

Ms. Budden and I share several social media circles together. I've been watching this book grow from the first inkling of an idea to production. I was hesitant at first to read the book due to the subject matter - abuse. I'm really glad that I challenged myself to read this book. It is very well written.
The story is written in first person. The reader views the thoughts of the main character, Kelly, as she re-lives her not so pretty past.
The pace kept me wanting to see what would happen next - Kelly's life was full of the good and the bad that life had to offer her. I cheered for the good and wanted to wish away the bad but as we all know real life doesn't work that way. So I watched the story unfold before me.
I learned a few things that I hope that I might be able to share with people that I know who are or have suffered abuse at the hands of another.
