About the author:
Denise Landry worked as a Sales Representative for over fifteen years. She now resides in Salt Lake City and is self-employed working as an Employment Recruiter and enjoys writing in her spare time.
Her only child Kelsey currently attends Weber State University and is receiving a full ride golf scholarship; she hopes to turn Professional after graduating in 2013.
Lauren, a young successful golfer was never privy to her mother's childhood, nor did she care to be.
Uprooted from her beloved Ohio home at age eleven and forced to move out west, to a place where being Mormon seemed to mean everything, everything her family wasn't. Kay struggles to survive bullying and abuse all while living as a foreigner in Utah.
Kay does everything she can to keep her past in the past. She rains the adoration she longed for as a child onto her daughter, while doing her best to give Lauren a life she was unable to have.
But no matter the reassuring love, Lauren resents her mother for repeatedly moving them. She feels there's no excuse for a childhood full of new beginnings.
Now Kay is fighting what seems to be a losing battle against a corporation that protects a man hell-bent on hurting her. She is backed into a corner where her long-lived daydreams and reoccurring nightmares are forced to resurface.
As the full view of her mother's life unfolds before her, Lauren struggles to process her emotions, and come to terms with the truth hidden behind her own motivations.
