Growing up during the depression wasn't easy for anyone, but a young woman from rural Idaho is thrust into the chaos of New York City almost without a thought. It was her upbringing that created the strength she would need to survive and eventually thrive through all of life's challenges.

From a cheating husband, to depression of family members, to dealing with issues of drug abuse and a child she always knew was gay, Carol weaves a fascinating story of indomitable spirit, fierce determination, gentle humor and an attitude of supreme resiliency in the face of life's most challenging moments.

Carol's story will have the reader weeping and laughing at the same time as she teaches by example how to "pull your sox up" and get on with it.

About the Author:

Carol Grier has lived life to the fullest and has collected memories and views of life which are insightful in understanding the human spirit. Besides her titles of mother, daughter, wife, and friend, she also is a writer, educator, consultant, actress, director and wardrobe specialist. Carol was born in rural Idaho, but moved frequently, experiencing life from urban, rural and suburban perspectives as her family moved from rural Orofino, Idaho, to Yosemite National Park, to San Francisco, California and finally to Portland, Oregon. A difficult marriage and a beautiful marriage book end her adult life along with raising her son. Through grit and determination, she obtained her college degree in theatre arts later in life and considers that a real triumph for an older gal. Carol now lives in Beaverton, Oregon where she is currently working on a book "How to Recognize a Good Man When You Meet Him," as well as a novel set in the mountains of Idaho.
