Practical encouragement to rebuild your life, reclaim your life, and renew your life.

In 1990, the author had been married for thirteen years to a successful businessman, was the stay-at-home mother and followed the teachings of a strict fundamentalist church. In 1991, she faced divorce, poverty, and losing her son, who was mentally and physically disabled, to a series of psychiatric facilities and, later, the juvenile justice system. What Saved Me is the story of how someone can rebuild their life when everything they thought to be true and permanent disappears.

From unemployed mother to successful business owner, from foodstamps to filet mignon, from an apartment without hot water to owning two homes, from right-wing conservative to a more diverse viewpoint, Starr leads the reader, with practical advice and realistic hope, through a dozen "ways" to embrace life.
