I know that I never would have made it this long if my Lord didn’t have something special to do in my life.

Sandra Cannaday, a retired educator, has completed her first book “The Pushed Away Child”: a shining example of the power of the human spirit to endure adversity and overcome hardship.

Describing her inspiration to write Cannaday says: “I have been knocked down many times, but never out. I know that I never would have made it this long if my Lord didn’t have something special to do in my life. So yes, I have left a mark that can never be erased. I have so much to be thankful for and so many to thank for loving me. I didn’t write this book to shame anyone, only to teach my readers how the power of faith can make your low a high, your wrong a right, no into yes, and turn hate into love. No man has ever had this power; the power to set the sun and raise it again or change the color of a flower or give the birds a new song to sing.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Sandra Cannaday’s poignant tale teaches readers that we cannot use our past as an excuse for cruelty and that love is far more powerful than we often realize.

The Pushed Away Child is a heart-wrenching tale of a young girl’s struggle to survive in the face of her mother’s coldness and indifference. Never hearing the words, “I love you,” the young child is passed around from family member to family member, dealing with all sorts of abuse––emotional, physical, and sexual––until she is finally old enough to begin a new life as a young woman.

With a child of her own, the young woman never forgets the pain of a mother’s slight, and makes sure that her son realizes just how important he is to her. With tenderness and an unwavering devotion to improving his life, the young woman receives an amount of love from her son that the old mother would never understand.

Readers who wish to experience this riveting work can purchase “The Pushed Away Child” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
