Safe from the Past: Failed Blog Tour

Sunday, August 7, 2011 4:50 PM Posted by Savanah Jeanne


Awe Man. I missed a blog tour. Well, better late than never I suppose. Let's hope this doesn't become a habit. I'm also submitting this book into the "books I should have read by now challenge" because I actually didn't even finishing reading the book when my turn to review came around...(shame on me).  Click me to buy the book --> Safe from the Past.

About The Book:
A kidnapping, the divorce of her parents, the loss of her father, temporary abandonment and extreme poverty are just some of the issues the author dealt with as a young child. 

Her mother finally tells her she must go to college so she can break out of this cycle of poverty and hopelessness. But how can she when she has no money and absolutely no confidence or self esteem? 

Read this true story to discover what hope, faith and determination can do to change a life.

A truly inspiring, deeply personal tale of perseverance in the face of unimaginable hardships, Safe from the Past makes clear the restorative power of an education.

Told in an open, honest voice with the deepest sincerity, the author's life story serves as a rousing inspiration to those with the desire to create a better life than the one they are currently living. 

No matter how helpless you feel, everyone has the power to shape their own life.

About Patricia Miller Mauro:
Patricia worked in New York City's financial district for thirteen years in the field of securities operations. At that time, she went on to obtain an MBA from New York University. She and her husband moved toDallasTX in 2001 where they are raising their two children.

During her time in NY, Patricia wrote an article entitled "A Tribute To My Mother" which was published in "The Recovery Journal" in 1999. Her book is a continuation of that tribute and serves to spread the message to those in similar situations that good news is on its way to children considering a higher education but who are afraid to dream.

My Thoughts on the book:

There is no doubt in my mind that God uses the poor, weak and oppressed to do mighty things in His name. And I believe that Ms. Patricia has the perfect story to tell with that in mind. I found her story to be very compelling and intriguing. She's one of those people I wish I could just hug because I know of all her troubles. Her book was also an easy read, which made it flow easy. Biographies can be hard to work through if they don't "flow". However, I had a feeling that a few points where dramatized. But it was just a feeling. I don't think everyone is going to have this feeling, therefore I will not name specifically where I felt this way. Otherwise, Her story is good and reminds me of many a bible story where God chooses to show His strength through the small and weak. Go Patricia!
