THE MAKING OF A WOMAN is the compelling autobiography of a dynamic female who refused to bow down to the circumstances of her birth. With a prevailing sense of self and survival, Jewels fought a hardscrabble war against the forces and people that populated her life in a way that often crushes others.
Survival stories are common. But, if you’ve ever struggled with the possibility of forgiving your past and all that it entails, you will enjoy this story of how one woman continued to reach for the light, despite the darkness. Jewels does not hold back in her retelling of the good, the bad, and the ugly. However, the ways in which this author resolved to use the more painful experiences of her life as sources of higher education weaves an extraordinary tale of not only endurance but the genesis of a new existence.
Jewels is happy to light the way for all others who have felt they were damaged, broken beyond repair, shamed, unwanted, and ridiculed. Refusing to accept that there was not a place for her in the world, Jewels created a place of her own. Her story proves that happy endings aren’t just for fairy tales.
