"Composing Myself is a heartwarming story of forgiving the people you love, and finding the strength to stand up and be proud of where you came from. I laughed, I cried, and I had a smile on my face when I turned the last page." ~ Tracey Garvis Graves, author of the New York Times bestseller On the Island

For Whitney Monroe, it's always been easier to lie about who her mother was than face the shame and judgement that would surely follow the truth.

Now with Grams seriously ill, her mother's life in turmoil and her dream job and relationship on the line, it's more important than ever for Whitney to hold everything together. But when that means being honest with everyone—starting with herself, is Whitney strong enough to do what it takes?
