How The Light Gets In is the true story of a girl who went from an impoverished prostitute's daughter to an educated, loved, and empowered woman, wife, and mother.
"The engaging and powerful Keira Shae writes a memoir which is both a warm embrace and a slap in the face. Keira's writing evinces the burgeoning strength and humility of a true survivor-rising like a phoenix from an abusive past. Keira's ability to radically love breathes a spirit of redemption into an autobiography filled with rape, prostitution, sexual and physical assault, addiction, and mental illness... the result is a tale filled with sorrow, anger, and compassion-a veritable rollercoaster."
--Heather Harris Bergevin, author of Lawless Women
"Equal parts empowering and shocking, Scholz helps us hear the silent suffering of innocent children hidden just beyond our view. It's inspiring to see a well-honed writer invite us into the reaches of her heart. From a truly traumatic past to a promising future, Scholz's story is a reminder to search for the divine within ourselves and each other."
--Julie Nelson, author of Parenting with Spiritual Power
