Safe From the Past Blog Tour and Giveaway!

~Safe From The Past~

Patricia Miller Mauro

A kidnapping, the divorce of her parents, the loss of her father, temporary abandonment and extreme poverty are just some of the issues the author dealt with as a young child. 

Her mother finally tells her she must go to college so she can break out of this cycle of poverty and hopelessness. But how can she when she has no money and absolutely no confidence or self esteem? 

Read this true story to discover what hope, faith and determination can do to change a life.

A truly inspiring, deeply personal tale of perseverance in the face of unimaginable hardships, Safe from the Past makes clear the restorative power of an education.

Told in an open, honest voice with the deepest sincerity, the author's life story serves as a rousing inspiration to those with the desire to create a better life than the one they are currently living.

No matter how helpless you feel, everyone has the power to shape their own life.

This was a very good book~ a very short fast read that holds your attention. I really like true stores and this did not let me down.  It was good to read as no matter what hardships and struggles were thrown at her she made it thorough. She turned in to a very bad situation into a good one. As she grew up to not only to be successful~she forgave her Mother for everything in her past. I think that her faith in God helped her see things in a new light. I would recommend this book to everyone~As I plan to share my copy with my daughter and granddaughter.
