FIND BEAUTY within DARKNESS: Stopping the Pattern (revised and updated edition) (Paperback)
At age fourteen, Giselle McNab was on her own. Grieving the loss of her childhood, Giselle wrestled with the events of the past and the bleak promise of her future. She wondered where she would go when she hit rock bottom. In this intense and emotional retelling of events in her life, Giselle weaves an incredible story of triumph and overcoming every odd stacked against her. She explores the family dynamics, financial struggles, and emotional trauma that perpetuated a cycle of abuse in her childhood and even into her adolescence. Moving through her mother's history in the Bronx, New York, and then being passed around to different relatives, Giselle chronicles the feelings of abandonment and isolation she experienced as a child and how she overcame them in adulthood.
