From the Author:

I share my story in the hopes it will help others to survive any similar circumstance or situation. My desire is that my story will bring you hope to never give up, because the darkness will pass. This is a story of surviving loss in general and, specifically, my family's mental illness, divorce, domestic violence, drug addiction, alcoholism, murder/suicide, the unexpected death of loved ones, and more. It is my desire that when you finish reading it you will feel hopeful and comforted in the knowledge that you too can survive any trauma that has led you down a dark path or just led you to read this book. I have come to believe that my purpose in life is to testify to the world that we can find happiness and forgiveness even in the face of evil, destruction and despair.

From the Back Cover:

"Cathy Lynn Massengale's book is an intimate and courageous account of one woman's journey from heartbreak and tragedy to healing and triumph. 
 
Her insights into her own family dynamics, including her perceived failures and successes, are liberating and refreshing.
 
Massengale writes with simple intention to share her traumatic life story so that readers grieving tragedy and loss may find their own resilience, healing, and hope.  Her candid story reveals how she found her voice, her confidence, and her soul's purpose.  Massengale's indomitable spirit, and determination prepared her to survive the heartaches of life, to appreciate the joyous moments, and to believe in the possibilities of finding peace and love, acceptance and forgiveness.  Readers of this book will be inspired to "pucker up and sing!"
