Overview

"Now within sobriety, I felt I had created such a mess with my life that any love others held for me must surely be gone. Looking for love from someone, from anyone, I became convinced it no longer existed. How do you get over that?"

Although Sheila Raye Charles was surrounded by people, she was overwhelmed with loneliness. Those she should have been able to trust had failed her; life itself seemed to mock her attempts to overcome not only her own past but also the choices of those who had lived before her. Sometimes it seemed there was no hope beyond these shadows she could never seem to escape...

This isn't a book I would say is doctrinally oriented; it's simply a truthful story of the daughter of Ray Charles -- her spiritual struggles, her life struggles, and a God who lifted her up despite her imperfections. What a testimony of One who stays with us even when our thoughts are not His thoughts nor our ways His ways. Praise God!
