A woman in Nova Scotia struggles through disappointment and adversity for acceptance and love denied her as a child. Hope springs eternal, and faith, determination and a sense of humour is what she clings to as she keeps reaching for tomorrow.


Book Description

Living through the years of adversity, Dianne Nice takes you on a voyage of Laura's life as an abused and unwanted child with a disability.  Searching for love leads to disappointment and abuse as the heroine clings to her faith and the hope of being reconciled with the children she has lost.  Always led to believe she was "stupid", Laura proves her mother wrong when she achieves great success in her career.  Never able to discuss her past without being judged as unfit, she struggles to re-establish a bond with the little girls she had for so many years been separated from.  A shocking discovery leaves Laura with indifference for the woman she had called mother.

“A heart-warming story that has its roots in the harsh yet beguiling landscape of Nova Scotia.” – Charles Muller, Diadem Books.
