Bay Shore, NY (PRWEB) January 28, 2013
After the successful publication of her first book, “On The Morrow”, in December 2009, author Maggie Stephens-Dykes makes an entrancing come back with the heart-tugging and uplifting second rendition of her plight to find inner peace. In Letters Home, she focuses on how she believes her mother’s alcoholism shaped the lives of her siblings, both individually and collectively.
This cleverly written story intermingles thoughtful observations with humorous stories of overcoming insurmountable odds. In Letters Home, Stephens-Dykes discuss the strong bond of siblinghood, how it was strengthened while battling the scars that the addiction left behind, and letting go of the past. This second hand account will have booklovers, of all ages and races, laughing out loud one moment, and crying the next. The story will hold them captive and in time they are free, they will realize it has been a wonderful journey through life, love and everything that comes in between.
In Letters Home, Stephens-Dykes has written a revealing narrative that will ultimately leave readers with a different outlook on life, love of family, and forgiveness. It is truly a must read.
