When her father married beautiful and sophisticated Jade, five-year-old Katie couldn't have been happier. The union of their blended family meant four siblings, a bigger house, extravagant holidays and most of all, a mother she had only dreamed of. Once the novelty wore off, however, Katie found herself in a toxic environment she couldn't escape. Like "Mommie Dearest," she suffered decades of torment, manipulation and abuse. Now, for the first time, Kathryn's story reveals the deepest, darkest secrets of her childhood. This is the inspirational story of how she finally broke free. From growing up in the "paradise" that is Panama City, Florida, to her travels all over the country and around the world, Kathryn's journey is proof there is redemption, a light at the end of the tunnel, hope and happiness available to each of us.
