Book Description

511Qn6lIDJL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_Michele Anstead’s inspiring true story is a stunning account of ultimate triumph over the most impossible of odds. From an early age, her life was marred by abuse, deprivation, abandonment, addiction, incarceration, tragedy and loss.

Michele’s downward spiral began at the age of three, when she witnessed her mother and aunt being beaten by her uncle, followed by her mother slashing open her uncle’s head with a butcher knife. This incident set a horrific chain of events in motion exposing her to sexual abuse while in foster care, followed by a life on the streets filled with violence, drug abuse, poverty, and some of the worst experiences human nature has to offer.

You will be mesmerized by Michele’s perseverance through these devastating events and cheer as she battles back from the brink of death to a life of promise, purpose and ultimate success. From the opening paragraph, you will not be able to put this book down.

FEAR IS NOT AN OPTION will appeal to a wide range of readers, especially fans of memoirs about surviving abuse, such as Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes, Mary Karr’s The Liars’ Club, and A Child Called “It,” by Dave Pelzer. More broadly, FEAR IS NOT AN OPTION will appeal to readers who appreciate books in the categories of women’s interests and inspirational, and also to readers who have experienced child abuse and/or domestic violence first-hand.

“A Force of Inspiration!!!”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Teresa Burchett

What a page-turner! The opening paragraph is one of the most emotionally-provocative use of foreshadowing you will ever come across – an introduction worthy of comparison to any of the greats! Once you are in the hooks of the gripping and compelling opener, you won’t be able to let go. This story is fraught with every imaginable experience of human hardship, yet prepare yourself to be amazed at how resilient and triumphant the heroine proves to be. If you love triumph-over-adversity narratives, do not let this book pass you by! Optimists will celebrate the irrefutable evidence of the power of positive thinking, and, and pessimists will change their life view after this read. Fear is not an option, and neither is negativity in this power-infused force of inspiration!
