While her friends danced and partied at Woodstock, Patricia donned her first wedding dress. Haunted by her self-destructive patterns, she searched years for the one who would fill the emptiness in her heart.
This poignant and moving memoir follows Patricia’s dangerous journey through love addiction, domestic violence, and post-traumatic stress. Her raw reflections and conversations with God offer a glimpse into the heartbreaking chaos she survived. Patricia bares her soul and shares her harrowing experiences and emotional insights from her struggle to find the courage to accept her role in her own life. For every woman who has followed her heart instead of her head, Patricia’s story offers hope and inspiration.
