An unwanted child, nicknamed ‘Suga’ is abandoned in New Orleans. Her story offers a glimpse into the life of an overprotected child who is reminded regularly by her benefactor that she must be grateful because nobody wanted her. She struggles to overcome the stigma and evolves into an accomplished and beloved mother of six children. Through years of challenges, including a horrendous accident, a nomad lifestyle, and a husband with a wandering eye, she dusts off an old skill, learns new ones, and inspires her offspring.
Suga’s story continues in her follow-up memoirs “Hey, Lady” and “The French Resolution” also available on Kindle. $3.49 on Kindle.
