Port Monmouth, NJ (PRWEB) June 14, 2016
Life will always be as tough for Alice Class as the South Bronx neighborhood she was born in. But that doesn't mean she'll ever give up. Alice, the daughter of a bipolar Cuban father and a mother who didn't know how to handle her husband's mood swings, finds herself lacking a true understanding of just what love is. All she knows is that she has to hold stuff deep inside because discussing family issues is considered betrayal. All she can do is keep fighting.
She gets her chance to succeed when she's admitted to a Bronx college. College comes with lessons on freedom, love, deceit, and trust. The most valuable wisdom isn't gleaned from time in the classroom-it's learned in the college radio station and the bedroom, as well as her sister's chronic illness, her parent's inability to cope with it, and her own struggling marriage.
Throughout it all, she'll experience a fight-or-flight feeling, an urgency telling her to run or give up. This sense gets stronger when her sister Enid suffers a chronic illness and Alice battles to discover what's really important to her in life. But no matter what's thrown at her, she keeps fighting.
"This book is filled with some personal experiences which inspired me to tell this tale about Alice, this loving and giving woman who takes the reader by the hand and gives them a detailed visual of the wonderful and awful experiences she is dealt with. Part self-help and part memoir, I wanted to address issues in life that are sometimes shunned and looked upon as inescapable and leave my readers with the message that no matter what happens we all need to never give up."
The book can be purchased at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble or BN.com for $15.00.
