Overview

Written with bold honesty and searing truth, You Won’t Be Coming Back is the true story of a family’s survival during the 1940s and 50s and one sibling’s personal journey into a life of achieving, stubbornly staying true to herself while overcoming significant adversity, hardships, and poverty. Set in the language rich area of northwest Wisconsin, the author shares a gripping story of the human spirit overcoming incredible odds. Born in a log cabin, the fourth of nine children, the author vowed to herself early on that she would not agree to be a victim and succumb to a life of degradation and subjugation. Fighting off negative aspects of her harsh reality, such as living with an alcoholic father, observing beatings of her mother and siblings and being a target herself, fiercely fighting off a nighttime assault and refusing to submit, and living in abject poverty, the author reveals how she stayed strong and true to herself and her soul. With the help of divine intervention and positive people in her reality, she moved through her journey with remarkable achievements and service to others. Literally taken out of school and her home at the age of sixteen, and told by her high school principal to “gather all your things because you won’t be coming back”, then called an “impudent little snip” (by a professional who ought to have known better), the author was moved into “heaven” with a new family and went on to become a polished professional serving others as a Speech and Language Pathologist for over half a century. Gritty and raw in places, humorous in others, here is a story to celebrate the strength, resilience, and perseverance of the human spirit. It will leave you in awe of the remarkable power of inner fortitude and determination. Intended as an inspiration for others who find themselves in challenging situations, and a metaphor for life itself, You Won’t Be Coming Back will stay on your mind and in your heart a long time.
