Donnitta Figures (best known as Muggie) had big dreams. She dreamt of graduating from high school, buying a car, renting an apartment, and attending college. But before she realized most of those dreams, Muggie died. For years, she had suffered from an illness inherited from her father's side of the family, but her family thought the symptoms were being treated and managed by medicine. Muggie's death devastated her family, especially her mother, Mary Ann Figures, who felt the two were as close as sisters. In this memoir, Figures provides her personal testimony on how she dealt with her daughter's sudden death. Bittersweet Journey narrates how reading the Bible helped Figures deal with the gamut of emotions she experienced grief, loneliness, fear, and guilt. Honest and emotional, Bittersweet Journey discusses the challenges one mother faced after the death of her child and how she overcame them and developed a closer relationship with God. It shows how she was able to reclaim her life and start living in the now.
