To persevere through it all, against the odds is a miracle. Not many realize this miracle because the ones who do persevere often are too humble to admit their achievements despite their obvious accomplishments. I have been fortunate enough to meet many of these people in my life and they have inspired me to write this book. However not every character perseveres through it all.
Unfortunately there are also people who just become another statistic. They succumb to the mess around them and don’t have enough control to fight the temptations of money, drugs, sex and conformity. This type of evil has known to suck in their users and it takes them to a point of no return.
Every single character in this book is alive in many ways. This story is based off of actual events but fictionalized. All of these characters are alive, not in singular form but multiple. There are many people with the same characteristics.
I have found it my duty to show the truth of the benevolent and the misfortunate. Before you read this make sure you remove your rose colored glasses because you will be in for a big surprise. The sugar coating was removed after the 1950s. This is the 1970s transformed in the 21st century.
This Irish American Family takes dysfunctional to the next level. Not the level you would expect. There is light in this dark tunnel but can you persevere through it all and find it?
This will all make much more sense as you read. Enjoy.
