Like a Hermit Crab in Search of a Home

“My takeaway from reading this book was mental and physical abuse which took a lifetime to heal, but resulted in an intelligent, thoughtful individual who values relationships and owns her past but doesn’t live in it. The new shell and occupant are beautiful, vibrant, and Joy.”  --Tricia Sanders

“By telling her story in achingly personal detail, Joy offers hurting souls a path toward healing. I for one am grateful for her candor. I’ve been immeasurably helped by her courageous search for identity and place.”
--Amy Harke-Moore

“In this case you can judge a book by its is a winner.”  --NB
