What on earth could push or pull a woman and mother of three to abandon her marriage, elope with a street kid, leaving those three kids behind? What on earth could push or pull a woman to live such parallel lives and fake such an existence whereas all the 'glamour' was just superficial? What definitely went wrong in her childhood that could have contributed to the sad and dare say 'insane' series of unconventional loves and existence? Well, this is what the novel is all about. This novel is a brutally honest memoir of a woman's struggle to live a 'Meaningful and Happy Life'. This novel is a sad tale of the depths a woman had to sink to before braving to a new life of 'Meaning and Happiness'. This is a story of Determination, Discipline and Dedication which takes its readers through a series of 'sane and insane acts' of a woman who lived in adultery over and over again, who lived parallel lives, and who when she missed the suicide attempt, realized it was time to be Honest with herself and her world. Intermingled in the sub themes, is the unfolding of a mother's dramatic and tough love for her daughter. Some say the novel is encapsulating and captivating and others say it is inspirational and motivational. The Author says, she thinks it is both. She wrote this personal 'thriller' of hers in all honesty because she wanted to make her Mess her Message and her Test her Testimony. It probably would make an excellent read!
