Buried Darkness: The Life of Deedee
Dee's young life was filled with challenges she was unprepared to face, but she did all she could to protect her little sister, Karla. Their mother, Lucy, did what she had to do to make ends meet-including selling her body to pay for her various addictions. The battered survivor of a lifelong war with drugs, abuse, and worthless men, Lucy also struggled with crippling mental illness.
Living in those conditions, with a mother who could barely care for herself, the girls barely understood that things like stability, responsibility, or hope even existed. But on those days when their grandmother Norveline cared for them, the girls knew a little peace and a little love. Miraculously, on the day when it all seemed to be too much to handle, Lucy reached out for the help that would save her fragile life. With the support of her therapist, she fought to regain control of her life and her tattered family.
Now stable, Lucy dreams of building a new life with the help of Natalie, a new friend who is also fighting familiar demons. Their friendship quite naturally blossoms into something beautiful and healing. Together, the two women and their four daughters form a healthy new family, and Dee and Karla finally know stability at home.
Finally feeling safe enough to be herself, Dee-now known as Deanna-begins to explore her own curiositi es. What will her life hold, now that she is free to soar?
