From the Publisher

Southern Women is a unique look at life-changing events through the first-person accounts of a teen-ager, a mom and a Greek goddess.
Yes, a Greek goddess.
The book takes off right away with the teen, who is born to Egg Donor. It is a hard look at an abused child, the abuses are unimaginable acts upon the child and the description of them is hard and graphic.
She details her struggles growing up, after being adopted by a loving “Mom” and the trials and tribulations of staying one or two steps ahead of Egg Donor, who is essentially selling the child to men for their sexual and abusive pleasure.
The teen,who has a disability, and Mom also have a hard time finding schools and friends willing to accept her. It is an eye-opening chronicle of the failings and successes.
Then, during the aftermath of the April 27th storms we are taken on a side trip visit with the Greek goddess Athena who shares a unique view of the world from Mount Olympus. Obviously, this isn’t a true “first person” experience but it is an entertaining and educational look at religion.
Throughout it all there is an additional woven entanglement with political principles and also nationality.
To close, although it was not expected to be shared, we are literally driven into the tornadoes that struck North Alabama on April 27, 2011. We experience the storm’s impact first-hand and the devastation it inflicted on people and property. We stay with this teen and her mother and all the other children together in a friend’s home because they could not reach their home because of the blocked roads and loss of utilities, including limited supplies of food and fuel.
The stories are enthralling and personal. And, chances are, you may relate to the circumstances or know someone who does.
