Ms. Hodgson tells a unique tale of an all-too-common story: difficult childhoods flowering into full and happy lives. It’s a story that will comfort and inspire many people to undertake the difficult work of looking at the hard, hard past in order to awaken into the wondrous possibilities. Too many people try to bury their past hurts; Ms. Hodgson shines the light on her trust in God and her courage, leading to the whole person she wanted to be. It’s a beautifully written primer, full of lessons and love for those on a similar path. I encourage the fearful to take the hand Ms. Hodgson offers and start the journey.
