Sunday’s Child by Anne Lyken-Garner is the remarkably inspirational true story of a little girl struggling to rise above poverty, appalling living conditions, food lines, violence, abuse, mental anguish and political hardships. It shows how she picks out little glimmers of hope and love and uses them as positive anchors in her life. She draws on everything she has – just to survive. Readers, all of the events I’ve recorded in this book have happened to me in real life, each and every one of them and more. I have changed the names of the people in this memoir – but not Theresa’s – because I did not wish to cause them any embarrassment. Apart from these names, nothing else has been changed; although, a few of the events may not have appeared chronologically. I have recorded these episodes of my life to show that regardless of your past, with God’s help, and a few good people, you are potentially able to rise above it and can consciously decide not to allow it to affect who you are at present.
