In this moving and powerful memoir, Farooq Shah recounts his painful journey of healing and discovery that illustrates the positive and transformative power of self-love and love of others. Shah's own father viewed his son as his personal failure. His father's repeated abusive words combined with his time spent in hospitals, led Shah to internalize that sense of worthlessness and grow into the embodiment of shame, guilt and anger.

While recovering from a severe neck injury, Shah awakened to the power of choice in his life and that he was indeed not only worth of love, but was loved. By choosing to make himself vulnerable and open to the power of love, he has been able to truly transform his life into a positive force. By sharing his incredible journey, Shah seeks to awaken the power of choice and love in the lives of his readers.
