An attempt to define this memoir is like trying to define life in one breath. You are invited to bear witness to the power of a single vision experienced by a five-year-old girl. Lou’s vision carries, holds and guides her through years of silence and being silenced. Step inside these pages and walk this winding path of hope, healing and transformation with Annette/Lou.
