An autobiographical account of a woman's spiritual journey along life's bumpy road. The author continually makes choices throughout her life that takes her further away from her dream to be a wife and mother, yet brings her ever closer to her own essential truths.
From the Back Cover of the book:
Not in a million years would I dream up such a life for myself. As a child all I ever imagined was that I was going to get married as early as possible, have children and live happily ever after. End of story. Someone – I don’t know who, must have put a curse on me; the one that says; May you have an interesting life.” Why else would a good Catholic girl end up having a life like this? What happened to my dream of being a happy mom playing with my children? I’m quite sure it was a curse.
Choosing a life as a noncustodial mother of infants, crossing the Atlantic Ocean on a 93-foot schooner, acquiring three master’s degrees and a Ph.D., and writing a book about self-empowerment … What happened to my dream of being a happy mom playing with my children? I’m quite sure it was a curse.
