Last year, an old friend of mine, Annette Pearson, contacted me to tell me how much she enjoyed my latest single, "Hug Inside an Envelope." She went on to say how deeply it touched her and how it resonated with her life. Annette then informed me that she was writing a book to document her incredible life journey and that she wanted to use the lyrics in her book. I was very flattered, but then I had to tell her that my good friend, Rosalind Winton, actually wrote the lyrics.
It all worked out very well, though, and Annette placed the lyrics in the book, gave Rosalind and me credit, and placed a QR Code in the back of the book for the reader to scan and download our song. Annette is a lovely woman with quite an inspiring story to tell.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Annette Pearson's dreams were high in the sky as a young child of divorced parents, filled with mansions, corvettes, and diamonds. She lived in the land of sunshine and trendy plastic dolls. With all her heart, she believed that whatever her dolls' reality was would be hers, too, one day. She eventually came to learn that reality isn't found in dream houses or plastic men. Reality is found in your own choices. Throughout her 40 something odd years, she has become a survivor of broken hearts, grief, eating disorders, abuse, infertility, miscarriage, anxiety, personal tragedy, and trauma. Through it all, she has found that laughter and strength come from someplace deep inside. Annette tells her story with raw and relatable honesty, sharing some of the most sensitive and challenging times of her life. "Women, we are so much stronger than we give ourselves credit for," she says. "We are warriors. We each have our own stories to tell of hope, love, and faith, and this is mine, just mixed in with a hot pair of shoes."
I hope you will take the time to check out Annette Pearson and pick up her book, "Finding Strength In The Dark." In these profoundly challenging times, we can all use an uplifting story of triumph and recovery. I can't make any promises, but a hot pair of shoes, a hug, and Annette's book may be just what you need.
