Prepare to Come About
 

Authored by Christine C. Wallace
Edition: 1

Christine Wallace writes with great clarity and honesty--and at times, with humor--about navigating the highs and lows of family, career and love in her gripping memoir "Prepare to Come About".

Wallace chronicles her wildly successful business that brought her accolades and awards, radio and TV interviews. However, as her professional life skyrockets, her family's lives spiraled downward. She unflinching shares tales of teenage children in crisis, family pressures and chaos that illuminate the struggles of many working families.

As the economic tides turn, her full-throttle lifestyle founders and uncontrollable events broadside her business causing a devastating professional aftershock that amplifies personal heartaches. Wallace and her family struggle with a loss of control of everything in their lives. The fractured family makes an unconventional choice that pivots them all into unfamiliar waters. Their lifeline comes in the form of a tall ship named Zodiac and its enigmatic captain.

Prepare to Come About with Christine Wallace as she, along with her family, weathers rough seas and resets her sails for a new course.
