"All Kate's books deliver a message and this book is no different. A gem of a book. I couldn't put it down. I would highly recommend it to anyone. A number of short, powerful poems with amazing insight into some of life's most difficult situations. Having had an incredibly dysfunctional upbringing I was able to identify with several of them. Kate conveys that there is light at the end of any tunnel. So pick yourself up, dust yourself off and discover your self worth." ~Brenda Wynne, Amazon Customer
"Although a departure from her Jack McAfghan trilogy in style and substance, One Heart's Journey: Lyrics of an Imperfect Life is yet another beautiful offering with a window into the life, the heart, of the author, Kate McGahan. As with her McAfghan series, Kate lays bare that which many would hide. Her message - of persevering, of survival, of hope, of forfiveness and grace and redemption, of Faith and Love - is inspiring. Many will recognize themselves in the abandoned and abused child, the rebellious teen, the lost young adult, and they will feel the hurt and pain through her recounting of the events that form and shape a life - but that don't have to define a path to desolation and despair. From a childhood of emotional and physical abandonment, through abuse, through rebellion in its many forms, this is the story of so many hurting today, haunted by their past. But it is also the story of those who seek to redefine their circumstances; who choose to grow from life's often difficult and painful lessons; who discover that Love is the answer."
"A very touching, beautiful book." Helen, Amazon UK Customer
"Wow! I came from a crazy family and was raised by my dad who did the best that he could. My mom walked out when I was 2 and decided she didn't want to be mom anymore. My dad (my hero) was left with 7 kids to raise by himself. So many of the stories really hit home for me. I have always tried really hard to do the best that I can. This book put a lot of my thoughts and feeling into words. I don't know how to describe it. All I know is, I read the first page of the book and I couldn't put it down until I finished it. A must read. You will learn that their is a light that shines in you. You just have to find it. That you are worth it. I"m sure different people will find different meaning to each poem. A must read for anyone that needs to know they are not alone. Do yourselves a favor and get this book."
From the Author
I have participated in and facilitated many different kinds of social support groups. There is a certain energy when two or more people come together with shared experience. There is a certain power of alliance that is created in the soul when you meet someone who, like you, has survived conditions that can otherwise degrade and destroy.

This book is both poetry and prose at the same time or maybe more!. What it is for me is a heartfelt journey of pain, memories and triumph. I related particularly to the long ago hurts of a youth. I felt rejoice in those poems that cried, "victim no more!"
Kate's poetry speaks loudly and subtly the message that victims, survivors, and their loved ones alike can relate to and find comfort in as I did. I read Jack's story first! The best I have ever read. So it was natural for me to want to read this earlier writing. I was not disappointed! And neither will you be!
