Crossroads: A Memoir” (published by Trafford Publishing) is Connelly’s engaging, sometimes shocking, life story that spans five decades as Connelly survives major obstacles to eventually become a successful mother, wife, businesswoman and local politician.

“Realizing I did not want to be like my family, I made sure that everything I did in life was going to be by my rules and not the rules of a family where ‘abnormal’ was the ‘norm,’” Connelly says. “These rules helped me become the person I am today.”

Praise for “Crossroads”:

“Now in her fifties, Connelly has gained some sense of empowerment through her ability to keep a journal and compose poetry. Written in a chronological, rather breezy style, probably taken from her journals, the book shows her too often rushing through events without considering consequences or caring for herself when she should have.”
