About the Book

This book tells the story of an ordinary girl from New Jersey and the subsequent transformational journey she took. This extraordinary journey, and the story she recounts, culminates with donating her kidney to her husband. It also tells of her struggles with adolescence, with food and alcohol issues, finding her way as a parent, and creative recovery. Her recovery from surgery led to a more powerful and deeper spiritual connection that allowed for a better more fulfilled life, all of which have led her ultimately to a truer self. Told in a relatable and honest way, Melissa’s authenticity and devotion to self discovery will inspire those looking to find meaning in their lives and empower them to transform everyday obstacles into miraculous opportunities.
