|About the Book|
One of the most beautiful aspects of life is the relationship and love between a mother and child. To go through life without a mothers love can be very cruel and difficult. It can easily destroy you or as in my case make you stronger. With determination you can have a wonderful life after experiencing a tough childhood. After fifty-three years of dealing with someone who was incapable of showing me any respect or love, I can say that I have finally broken free from my mothers bondage. After all of these years I can finally be the person who I want to be. It is as if I have just now begun to live. I will continue to write about my experiences as a child- hopefully, what I have been through will help others. I now know that a new beginning is possible no matter what life throws your way.
