From the Author

Imagine all the wonderful stories you have heard throughout your life from friends, relatives, and neighbors. Stories that fill your mind with hope, dreams, love, fear, and joy. Told to you by unwitting loved ones, these are stories in their purest form—never intended to be made public. To hear the life-changing moments of others without the filters of a professional machine lends itself to remembering the times gone by. Times when you sat on a front porch swing with your grandmother as she reminisced about how she married in 1942 before the war, and how she made ends meet on her own while her husband fought for our freedom.

The collection of stories in Unfettered Hearts brings tales from ordinary people much like you with experiences much like your own; some dramatic and life-altering, others viewed from a lifetime-lens of perspective. All are stories of courageous hearts. Of wise hearts. Of loving hearts. Of everyday people meeting the challenges of life with a sense of purpose and connection to something greater.

     Four women authors have come together, amazed and inspired as remarkable people from around the globe brought their extraordinary stories to life on paper to be shared with the world. The journey to put these inspiring stories together has touched not only the exceptional storytellers, but also the four friends who have worked together for three years to bring you this collection. Sharon, Denise, Ernestine, and Lily hope that you enjoy these stories, and that they remind all of us that challenging times do not last; they shape us into better, stronger, more enlightened individuals. These books detail stories heretofore untold but ones that will now resonate for eternity.
