Featured author Keri Lefave
Writing under the pen name Isana, the author is now happily married and has fond peace. This memoir is her contribution to helping other women who have experienced childhood and adult trauma in the hope that her healing will send a message that forgiveness is possible and that bitterness is not the only outcome. Isana finally feels whole and wants the same for those who have lived through similar experiences.
Unfinished is a moving memoir that sees it's gutsy protagonist triumph over remarkable odds to find herself and,ultimately feel complete.
Weave a tale around the following sentence and see if you win a prize.
“Wrapped in a warm afghan, lighted candles surrounding me, I was settled into my favourite chair with book in hand, when a screeching sound outside caused me to fling my book onto the floor and cover my head in fear.”
