Winner of Dan Poynter's Global eBook Award
"An engaging read from first page to last. Articulate, candid, fascinating true-life story." --The Midwest Book Review
Exposed to the goods, the bads, and the uglies of Dillard's world, readers can't help but sympathize with, cheer for, and laugh out loud at a man, who is trying his best to find the most stable path that leads from boy to man. Written like a novel and presented in bite-sized chapters, Lemonade shares the story behind the author's success. Through candor, vulnerability, and a tinge of wit, Dillard describes how he overcame his own sense of adversity, revealing many of the shocking details that he has held close to the vest. He now exposes past wounds with the hopes of encouraging others to succeed despite their own feelings of injury and loss. Simply, it is a tale of triumph and unmasks what happens when one learns how to win with the hand of life that is dealt. In a nutshell, Dillard stands in life's kitchen, gathers his ingredients, and shows us all what to make when all there seems to be is a basket full of lemons.
