Safe from the Past - Review

Book - Safe from the Past- by Patricia Miller Mauro

Paperback, 135 pages.

Patricia shares her difficult past, in this brief autobiographical account.  She shares the poverty, heartache and trials of growing up in a broken home. Her story is one of triumph. She tells how she survived difficult experiences and credits her mother for teaching her these skills. Her will and determination enabled her to get a college education and work her way out of poverty and into a better life.   This is both a sad, and informative story. I appreciate Patricia's honest look at life. I can imagine how difficult it must have been to share so much of her past. I think the book will give readers a look at how people live in poverty. They will see the struggles with hunger, alcoholism and family relationships.  She grew up in a broken home.  It was not a loving Christian home, it was a sad and seemingly hopeless place. This kind of thing is going on in many homes today. Young people will be encouraged by her story. Older people will be inspired to help the less fortunate.
