This is a real coming of age story that grips your heart as you read the first few pages.
As a young girl, the author lived through so much tragedy and constant heart break; I wanted to reach in the book and give her a hug!
I wanted to tell her she mattered!
I couldn't stop reading because I had to see the turn of events that saved her from not only the people around her but from her own self destruction.
Finally, it paid off!
The rest of the book was motivating. I found myself cheering her on as she finds redemption and peace.
I love how the author welcomes the reader into her own healing as well. It's like you feel that you were being healed too. Not to mention the person who became her hero and saved her from suicide. How that individual taught her to be a better person throughout all areas of her life was truly remarkable. The author gives quotes and poems which are gems that are thought provoking.
For a triumphant story of a young girl who suffered heartbreak and loss to a woman who found spiritual healing , please read this book.
