This is the true story of my life until now. The life of a girl born in a small southern town to an abusive father and tortured mother.

My life has been filled with witnessed abuse, actual kidnapping, teen pregnancy, teen marriage, domestic violence, escape, re-building and overcoming the challenges I have faced.

This is my life, as I recall it. The ups and downs and the peace I finally found within.


  • Really good read

    I appreciate the bare honesty of this story and the lessons learned were relatable and without too much flourish.

    I could really feel the pain of her first marriage. I too suffered from an abusive marriage and was taken back to those days I lived through. I really liked how she went to counseling and learned about herself. I would like to know how her children faired through all her relationships ups and downs. How her first daughter ended up growing up and if she suffered any issues because of the mother's choices and having to be the adult in many cases. Also, how the other kids ended up being because of the losses they encountered. I think a good idea for the next book is to tell their story
