Talk about touching a nerve! This is a book that men and women will pass around to each other with a brief handwritten note tucked inside the cover, “You have to read this!” Sometimes you have to leave your life behind for a while to see it and really live it freshly again.

Sometimes heart breaking, sometimes humorous, always brutally honest and hardcore, this memoir presents a powerful and unsettling series of memories that work simultaneity on a number of levels controlled by someone we all trust; Mother. Katy recalls her rebellious ways and crazy times of being a renegade biker chick.

From insane asylums, she tells stories of unspeakable horror, ECT (electroshock, shock treatment. The most common side effects of ECT are memory loss and cognitive damage.) That has long been shrouded in secrecy until now.
Her quest to refusing to give up looking for a son would linger in her memory like a treasured photograph in this gut-wrenching story. Katy braids together past, present and the events of one desperate day in a haunting true story in which the sins of the past threaten to destroy a wicked red-blooded original; Mother’s fragile equilibrium of present.

A raw series of secrets of an “unwed” mother and/or loose teenager as Katy paints her life canvas. From the Carolinas to Florida back to Tennessee, Arizona, and back East, Katy takes the reader on an amazing journey of spirit and heart, never giving up on her dream.

No guys, this is not a chick book, it’s one you won’t be able to put down until you turn the last page.
