Background Information

Linda Sommer Farley - One of the most beautiful aspects of life is the relationship and love between a mother and child. To go through life without a mother's love can be very cruel and difficult. It can easily destroy you or as in my case make you stronger. An abusive grandfather and mother were traumatic parts of my life. At a very young age I had the responsibility of raising my younger brother and sister when no one was home. Money was scarce for me and so being poor I was faced with many challenges during and beyond my school years due to poverty. After fifty-three years of dealing with someone who was incapable of showing me any respect or love, I can say that I broke free from my mother's bondage. After all of these years I can finally be the person who I want to be. It is as if I have just now begun to live. I will continue to write about my experiences as a child; hopefully, what I have been through will help others. I now know that a new beginning is possible no matter what life throws your way. This book contains some of my life stories. I describe the difficulties and accomplishments I have experienced in these painful and sometimes humorous stories. I wrote this book with the purest of intentions - to help others.
