Sometimes the biggest mistakes of our lives turn out to be the greatest miracles…

Marcia pulled herself from the brink of self-extinction for one good reason – she had a daughter. Funny thing is, she had never wanted to be a mother.

From the youngest age, she had borne the brunt of male brutality. Yet she survived her childhood and teenage years only to encounter further betrayals and losses.  And just when she thought she couldn’t go on, she did – with wicked humour and a will to out-survive every shitty thing that had ever happened to her.

This is a tough and tender ode to a heart and spirit that refused to shatter. A gift of hope to anyone who has ever wanted to give up and then tried again.
