Anything is possible if one is able to let go of their past and move forward.

Growing up can be a difficult time, as one has to deal with constant changes. From growing pains to struggling with school, many commonalities can be found in the struggles of growing up for most people. For Edna Cooper Williams, author of the new bookSaga of a Country Girl: The First Twenty-Five Years Finally Told” (published by Trafford Publishing), the struggles of growing up were plentiful.

Williams’ parents were farmers on a plantation they did not own. Her parents split up when she was only 18 months old, however, leaving her father in charge. These two points compounded with the fact that Williams was one of twelve children translated into long hours and little money.

“Saga of a Country Girl” puts readers into Williams’ shoes, as she is forced to grow up quickly. Throughout the book, readers will see Williams take care of her siblings, work at a young age and experience an event at 8 years old that is so traumatizing and horrific that she is only just now revealing it in her book. However, despite all odds, Williams manages to have a career in nursing and pursue her passion for writing.

Williams hopes her story will serve as an inspiration for others that anything is possible if one is able to let go of their past and move forward.
