I have decided to share small excerpts of my book The Woman I Never Knew. This book means so much to me, as it is a homage to the mother I never really knew.
I don’t understand why this has happened to our lives. Before daddy died we were such a happy family, but now…it just doesn’t seem right; we must have taken a wrong turn somewhere. I can’t believe that he was supposed to die or that my mom was supposed to go off the deep end or that I was supposed to be lying in the bed all bloody from the beatings. I don’t understand what we did that was so wrong to deserve the things that have happened to us.
