Gifted With Strong Life is one woman's inspiring story of growing up in rural New Brunswick in a family rich with love but enveloped in poverty. Baptized Baroness, she later shortened and changed it to Bernice. When her Grandfather Bacon passed away, his small house that should have gone to her mother, was given to her uncle. Her mother, in an outrage, burned the place to the ground. While her father worked in a lumber camp, her mother, driven by poverty, gave away Baroness and her eight siblings to anyone who would have them and then left without a trace. Her father came home and spent four months tracking down the children. As a teen, Bernice attended The Convent of the Good Shepherd where she learned to read. In later years she struggled with cancer, a cruel drunken husband and a baby arriving every year until a neighbor gave her the courage to take control of her life. A story of love and hope.
