In 1974, Sidney Andrews, a wife of fifteen years and a mother to three wonderful children, had a life envied by most. But when a stranger suddenly entered her perfect world, there was no way to predict the thunderous and devastating storm that would follow. Sidney's once picture-perfect life was about to unravel.
In her compelling memoir, Sidney shares a nontraditional and provocative love story that details the prejudice and judgment that surfaced within her family and community when two married women courageously walked out of the shadows to expose their sexual preference and love for each other during a time when homosexuality was rarely discussed-let alone embraced. After being threatened, shunned, and ultimately rejected because she no longer fit into the stereotype that society demanded, Sidney faced a choice-to be ruled by trepidation and guilt or to instead, welcome her authentic, new love with open arms and a forgiving heart.
A Fall to New Heights offers a glimpse into one woman's poignant, thirty-seven-year journey from the darkest corners of her mind to realizing the strength of her spirit and freedom from living a life filled with fear.
