Young Woman's Powerful Story Encourages Others That They Can Turn A Bad Start In Life Into Something Positive

Raleigh, NC, September 11, 2018 ― Deja' was dealt a losing hand, and no one would have blamed her for simply accepting her fate. Her father died before she was born, and her mother chose drug addiction over her daughter. With loneliness consuming her, Deja' could have folded. Should have folded. But instead, she learned how to recycle her pain, and she began drawing from every source of positive influence that entered her life: a God-loving grandmother, a supportive godmother and a street-savvy godfather who taught her how to redirect her pain and survive in this world.

But the challenges just kept coming, and Deja' encountered countless betrayals and abuses along the way, which lead to an unhealthy marriage, and ultimately, a pattern of unhealthy relationships with men that lasted for several years. Aware that she is repeating a family cycle of poor choices, Deja' needs to rally what's left of her strength and determination to break that cycle. Will her fortitude be enough? Or will this final test break her spirit once and for all?

Goodreads; "From time to time, we get a book that is just screaming, "Me next, me next.” Overcoming the Hand You Were Dealt … was one of those books. It is difficult to believe that this book is the first book out of the chute for this author. Taylor is a master storyteller who tells the story very well…The author writes in such a way that you can feel the pain. You can feel the betrayal. Readers follow as one person after another in the main character's life hurts her in one way or another…Then, we read in this true story of how the main character overcame all odds. How she pulled herself up by the bootstraps she did not have and overcame…We give this book all five stars. It is one of those books you won't want to put down. One that you want to think everything is rosey in the end, but it is about real life.”
