is the story of a young woman’s search for love, the challenges she faced in an unkind
world, and the way in which she overcame obstacles and achieved her ultimate dream.
This memoir tells the life story of Myrtle Morrison, who never received love from her
mother and never knew the true identity of her father. The story relates how, through
determination, Myrtle survived sexual harassment, a near-rape, a murder attempt, and
much more to become a respected member of the community, a well-loved mother, and
a source of inspiration for others.
