And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. – Anais Nin
Within the pages of this inspirational book, six women share stories of their tenacious climb from the depths of human trafficking, infidelity, grief, divorce, domestic abuse, and homelessness to inspire women to extract the advantages from their adversities for self-empowerment and service to others.
With courageous persistence, they harnessed universal laws of life and spiritual truths to transform their lives. Although their dances with adversity are not prescriptive, they are reflective of the resilience of the human spirit—a vital commodity in today’s increasingly complicated and precarious world.
