The recipe for happily-ever-after? Start with one middle-class white girl in 1976. Add in her longing for love and acceptance, another middle-class white girl, a huge dollop of gossip, and excruciating peer and family pressure. Stir in youthful travel abroad, a Berkeley education, and a foray into paganism, drugs, marriage, and divorce. Whip until frothy with interracial and bisexual affairs, relationship violence, and exploration of multicultural mores. Season with salsa dancing. Temper with a segue into Mormonism. Decorate with a Temple wedding and garnish with motherhood to three adopted siblings. And what you have is a memoir capable of sating anyone's need for a great read.
From shame to self-acceptance, from sexual ambiguity to definitive choice, from skepticism to belief, Donna Carol Voss's journey from childhood through marriage and motherhood is both unique and universal, a story that will resonate long after the last page is read.

Perspective on Life from Many Angles
The thing I loved best about this book is that Donna is a real person, talking about real life.
I had a hard time putting this book down. I was hooked right from the start.
Christians believe that God will judge us by looking in our hearts. This book is a look into the heart of a beautiful woman!
A compelling true life story
