With hope, we can accomplish what seems impossible at first. This is the diary of Miranda, born into humble circumstances, and brought low time and again by tragedies in her life. Yet she never gives up, for the simple reason that hopefulness has been a central part of her character since she was a child.
At the age of fifty-one, Miranda begins keeping a diary for posterity. The first entry is a summary of her life up to that point, and what she plans to do thereafter in her remaining years. Hope is a recurring theme in her life, as she returns to the well of her childhood learning time and again in order to find the will to carry on. We all benefit from the Miranda's in our midst, and without them, there might well be no hope for any of us. Hers is a life with authentic human dignity.

About the Author
I am an urban writer and poet without any sort of qualifications for the job. I hope to bring lucid poetry and prose to my readers that inspire in a maddening world, rather than just condemning that world. There's always hope. Peace and good times - T.H.
