Surviving Life Beyond the Pale: I was set up! A journey from innocence through abuse to strength
Grateful Steps Publishing House is pleased to announce the arrival of Surviving Life Beyond the Pale: I was set up! A journey from innocence through abuse to strength, a new book by M.A. Sandry, an Asheville native. With a goal of helping others through similar difficult circumstances, the author takes the reader on a journey through her multiple, severe early life traumas, which she remarkably overcame through personal insight, courage and spiritual growth.
From the book: My father was still at work. My stepmother met me at the door as I returned from school. She handed me fifty dollars and my suitcases and told me, “You can go stay at one of your friends’ for a while . . . or forever if you want to. But you must go.”
Shocked and not moving, I stared at her.
”I mean it. Your father and I need some time together without you around.”
So, I, a 15-year-old girl, went stumbling down the road.
M.A. Sandry lives in the North Carolina mountains with her best friend and two fur babies. She is still writing and is currently working on a children’s book.
The author is available for interviews, as well as book signings, programs and readings. Surviving Life Beyond the Pale, the first book for this author, is published by Grateful Steps, an Asheville-based traditional, independent, non-profit publisher. The book can be purchased at the Grateful Steps Bookshop and other area bookstores. It may also be obtained online at www.gratefulsteps.org, at Amazon.com and at barnesandnoble.com.
