9780989196017: It Took Seven Years to Win: A Woman's Struggle a Memoir

It Took Seven Years to Win is a true story based on the life experiences of Marjorie Saunders. After 23 years of marriage, a lost childhood, and three children later, her husband leaves her. As financial problems loom over her head, a friend recommends applying for a job at a naval shipyard. She does so and finds herself moving from a career as a hairstylist, working her own hours, to punching a clock in a male-dominated world, working on big ships. Marjorie eventually takes a job transfer from the East Coast to the West Coast and problems begin to crop up for her. She shares her struggles and fears in these pages, as well as a forced stay in a mental hospital. She makes herself transparent, as well as reveals her emotions because she wants to give strength and hope to her readers who may feel trapped and think that there is no way out of their dire circumstances. Through all the many challenges that befall her, the lies, the discrimination, Marjorie anchors herself in God, knowing that He can restore her, grant her favor, and give her peace-even if it takes seven long, agonizing years. Persius, an ancient Roman poet, states it clearly: He conquers who endures. Those words still ring true today. Marjorie endured, and with God's grace, she conquered.
