Safe From the Past
Title: SAFE FROM THE PAST
Author: Patricia Miller Mauro
Publisher: P3 Press
Patricia Miller Mauro’s parents divorced when she was very young, and she was forced to go hungry when food stamps ran out. Used to the same and stigma of being poor, Patti could hardly imagine a better life. When her mother remarried, Patti’s step-dad and she didn’t get along. Patti was glad to leave home for college, but she worried about her sister and about how to pay for college.
SAFE FROM THE PAST is a remarkable story of courage and pluck. Patti had the courage to take her life by the horns and to do what it takes to survive. I don’t know of many in her situations that would do what she did.
While probably intended for the author’s family, the story is engaging, telling how one woman rose from poverty to become successful, happy, and have a family. This book will encourage anyone facing difficulties to carry on—that if you have a good attitude and are willing to work, you can survive—and not only survive, but thrive. $14.95. 140 pages.
