If interested in a book about a single mom overcoming adversity, check out "Too Much Luggage" by Quinn Tudor. I believe there is a website of the same name.

Meet Me in the Mountains
We could all write a book. Thats what Candy says and did. Her book is a memoir about overcoming lifes unexpected adversities with faith, humor, and stubborn determination.
Candy Marie Bridges was born in Southern California. In 1981, she and her husband Mike moved to Chandler, Arizona where they lived for 23 years raising three children. Candy shares her challenging and inspirational life story in her memoir. Her faith persistent, yet stubborn desire to accept and fight through childhood challenges like her parents divorce, is just one of many hurdles she faces all through her life. She takes you on a journey sharing her friendships, moving, two children with Crhons disease, and the senseless wrongful death of her husband. She currently resides in Pine, Az. where she boldy admits that there are no coincindences and that God has used all she has encountered and fought for to lead her to where she is now.

This review is from: The Arrogance of Evil (Kindle Edition)
The ones with no wisdom and full of pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, sloth, and greed are the ones that possess this evil covetousness and vanity with a craving desire to consume more than they can acquire at the expense of the people, investors, poor, and needy. These are some of our leaders, bankers, CEOs and Wall Street leaders. They are a bunch of little thieves and cowards who are immoral, good for nothing, and self-gratifying, and who illustrate disgusting behaviors and wicked human passions.DOMESTIC FINANCIAL TERRORISTS. They are fixated on themselves and they operate with avarice, sadness, anger, and vanity. They are sloths. This is a very serious problem. A lot of people don't understand the seriousness of their sins towards the poor, the needy, the middle class, and the people that they hurt intentionally because of their selfishness and through their corruption. The devil's mind is locked and cannot escape corruption or greed until he exhausts every mean of distortion via the wicked to claim his victims. The wicked in power follow with misguided decisions and false evidence of his intelligence to falsely prove that his judgment is right every time. The ingredients of this false cocktail distort morality and deliver completely unsafe solutions.
I believe 100% in capitalism, but not in capitalism through corruption and greed

Adytum, by Guido touches on 2 years in foster care, though it is not the core subject of the story. It is my humble hope that you may find it interesting anyway...

The latest reviews are in AND THEY ARE STELLAR...

"In his beautifully written memoir...he shares thoughtful insight into Fiji's exotic history and society...Off-the-charts hysterical. An unabashed, candid memoir that continually entertains and educates."
--KIRKUS REVIEWS

"An eye-opening story about love, loss, and discrimination...Not only is this an exciting memoir, but it's a great modern day Romeo and Juliet tale. You can tell that this book was a passionate labor of love. Each page is as addicting as the last, with great emotional elements driving the story. This is a great book for those looking for a well-rounded love story with a few laughs and a lot of heart." Five Stars.

Hi,

Gaston's Secret: the lottery child. In this memoir I was raised, or saved if you like, by my grandparents. As I had no father my grandfather filled that role.

Have a look and let me know if it interests you?

Thanks,

With everything in the news today about child molesters, the Jerry Sandusky trial and the ongoing scandals within the Catholic Church, I've recently gotten a book published that you might find very topical. It will help anyone who's interested to understand how this kind of thing continues to happen. It will also give you insight into the affect this type of abuse has on someone that young. It's called "Unraveling Charlie" and has already gotten a couple of good reviews on Amazon.
If you are interested please go to my website where you can read some sample chapters.

Dodging Machetes: How I Survived Forbidden Love, Bad Behavior, and the Peace Corps in Fiji

"Lutwick's memoir is a fun romp through the tropics, featuring forbidden love and outrageous cross-cultural miscommunications. Part `South Pacific' and part adventure comedy, Lutwick's book is all heart. I cheered for him every step of the way."

- JULIA SCHEERES, New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of "Jesus Land" and "A Thousand Lives: The Untold Story of Hope, Deception, and Survival at Jonestown"

". . . an entertaining and thought provoking Peace Corps memoir. This is a fine example of what a memoir can be . . . Written with episodic, fast paced chapters it is intriguing. Once I started, I could not stop and yet, found myself thinking about his story and its themes long after the highlighted passages began to fade . . . If you enjoy a roller-coaster memoir, you'll love Dodging Machetes. It will probably win awards. Five stars."
