. . . Anita’s writing style drew me in and made me feel like I was experiencing the events of her childhood along with her. I found it difficult to put the book down . . . I recommend this book to anyone searching for meaning in their life or who just wants to read a biography about someone growing up in the Pittsburgh area.” —Amazon Reviewer
Writing this book meant digging deep into my core to get to know myself as I journeyed towards self-liberation. Writing this book became the testimony of a struggle for mental wellness in personal identity, self-acceptance, and connectedness. With liberation came freedom from guilt, depression and fear. Along the way I strengthened my faith, trust and belief in God.
