Mariana Gumm, a devoted writer and author, has completed her new book “The Beginning”: a gripping and potent journey of passion, willpower and change.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Mariana Gumm’s fascinating work portrays the beauty of life and the power of faith.

Ana was born in a world plagued with poverty, ignorance, hopelessness and helplessness. In that world the "men commanded" and women had no say on their decisions. Women had to be submissive and obedient to their parents and later to their husbands. Women had to obey even the most senseless and clueless of orders. When Ana was born, her father was expecting a boy since "boys" were a "blessing," while girls were only a “waste of time and money." With this close-minded idea about female daughters, most women would grow up with poor self-esteem and subject to being either objectified, used or abused by other men starting with their own family. For Ana, that was not the right way of living a life. Thus, since she was a toddler, she decided she will change her destiny and she would show the rest of the people how life was supposed to be lived. Although she had to overcome all kinds of neglect, physical and emotional abuse, she never gave up on her dreams of changing the "status quo." That was the beginning of her Odyssey.

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