Of Roots and Wings

Of Roots and Wings

Of Roots and Wings is the story of Beverly who overcomes repeated abuses by the clergy and her biological and adoptive family to eventually become her own hero. As an adult she continues in a pattern of abusive relationships until she decides to become a psychologist and undergoes her own analysis. Although her story is intense, her sense of humor is interlaced throughout. She conquers her abuses to help those in similar situations gain through her experiences, education, tenacity and courage.

This is a message of hope - that even when you are born into a family ensnarled in tangly, twisted roots - you can still find your wings. You can take flight and bring future generations with you. Despite adversity Beverly realizes that each perilous situation led her to her happy existence of today.

The truth indeed sets Beverly free.
