You will discover a lifetime of memories presented in Mia Carr's autobiography. She was a wife of a professional boxer in the lightweight division, who was managed by the famous Barney Ross, welterweight champion of the world. You will read about the physical abuse when she became her boxer husband's favorite sparring partner. She is the (mostly single) mother of two daughters, one of which was a professional baby model on television, who won the Commercial of the Year Award. There was also a time of a loss of finances and the necessity of welfare assistance. She is the grandmother of a Hall of Fame wakeboard champion of the world, who brought her so much joy in her life.

She went through diversified trials in life, like being harbored by the New York Foundling Hospital and efforts made, with great energy, to force her to give her baby up for adoption. She writes about a near-death experience and a spiritual encounter that left her with God's gift of intuitiveness and the ability to counsel with great success. She was married four times, with sad consequences, to a bragger of his conquests, a psychotic, a depraved closet queen, and a miser who loved his money more than he did God or his wife.

She had the good fortune of having a loving and devoted family on one side but, unfortunately, a family filled with sexual abuse and desecration and incest on the other side. She tells of her humorous experiences, and there were many, of heartbreak and doubt and the traitor causing her failure in her aspirations. She excelled in the art of ballroom dancing, where she was a recipient of many awards. And because of her faith in God and that special connection with Him, she gained the ability to survive and glide across the dance floor of life alone!
