I recently met Sofia again at a reunion and had not known what transpired in her life in the past 40 years. This book gave me an update.It is a very inspiring story that focuses mainly on Sofia’s great struggles to overcome the negative beliefs she was raised with about herself, men, and relationships. Through her own experiences with great abuse, confusion, and despair, she gradually “reached for the light.” Sofia desired a deep relationship with a loving God first and through various classes (Landmark, etc.), Bible study, counseling, introspection, etc. she learned how to move forward in her life. Eventually she feels confident enough to create a new, more mature relationship with a man that is built on a strong spiritual foundation (Bible-based) where respect, forgiveness, and caring are the keys. She has truly transformed her life. Sofia will touch your heart with her courageous journey.
