Many years of pain caused by one act of violence. Will a dear woman’s faith hold out?
BOSTON, MA, USA, May 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Onna Marie Wells, the book's protagonist, is an ambitious and attractive young Southern American woman trying to make a place for herself in a world where opportunities are few and far between. She knew that her family is unable to send her to college, but she did not mind because she wanted to become a secretary. She was thrilled when a chance to complete her studies presented itself. She set her sights and never looked back. She worked hard to earn a living and get a diploma in a clerical school.
The book opens with Onna getting a call from her Aunt Ivy. “Onna, you should come to Kadova and try to enroll in this city’s clerical program. I was told that it was free for high school graduates, and the next semester starts in two weeks.” “Oh, that’s great, Aunt Ivy. I have enough money to travel by bus, not much more. I hope I can get a part-time job to support myself.” “You don’t need to worry about that now, just come. One day when Jeff and I are old, we might need some help. Right now, we can help you.”
Just when her dreams are unfolding before her eyes, an event that will change her life forever happened. Her world has been flipped upside down by circumstances beyond her control. Will she stand the test of time? Will she persevere? Follow Onna’s heart-tugging tale of perseverance and endurance.
