Customer Review

What an absolutely raw, winding, and awe-inspiring story so personal you’ll think you’re reading the script to a movie. This isn’t just a text filled with deep transformation, drama, and a kaleidoscope of emotions driven by the human spirit, but one of survival and perseverance through the battlefields and rich landscapes of life

Customer Review

This vivid memoir is torn with such color, brilliance and intensity. Thea includes song songs in the most powerful way that reflects her own spiritual life and drives the reader to identify with their own childhood memories. She creates such pleasant nostalgia that the reader cannot help but walk with her placing their own past against hers and comparing those.
