Createspace Independent Pub, May 2, 2008 - Biography & Autobiography - 284 pages
On Valentine's Day 1979, a homemaker and mother of four, every value held dear, every belief upon which her philosophy was based shattered within the reverberation of her husband's words, "I don't love you anymore." Committed to providing a happier lifestyle for her children, she moved to the Sunshine State, leaving the bitter winters of northern Illinois and the bitter sting of "giving away" their home to avoid foreclosure. "Things are not like they seem to be," her father's words of wisdom to her as a child, their profound meaning began to unfold over time, motivating her to search for truth to pass the test called "life." Faith provided the driving force, anger the energy to maintain, and fantasy the soul food of hope, enabling her to cope with financial struggle and love/hate relationships until she experiences the true epiphany of Self. Spicy, humorous and poetic, The Weed and The Water Fountain embraces the essence of passion and the significance of dreams. A "must read" memoir!
