Why was this book written?
When Sarah graduated with a degree in journalism, her intent was to be a news anchor, but she couldn't shake her keen interest on the homeless individuals that hung around her university.
She felt a desire to know them because if she was being honest...they reminded her of her mother.
Sarah was raised by her mentally ill mother who went undiganosed with schizoaffective disorder for 50 years. Out of shame and guilt her mother's behavior was her fault, she silenced herself about the pain stirring through her home until college graduation.
After graduation, Sarah took a drastic turn in her career and decided to spend a year with the homeless individuals on the streets in Knoxville. She longed to know how they came to be without a home as a deep fear lived inside her that perhaps this could have been her life.
