Book Details

She loved. She lost. She learned.

Sandra was a happy lady. Good husband, beautiful kids, dream home, and an interesting career. Still, something beneath her surface was unsettled. Why weren’t all the pieces of what should be a perfect puzzle fitting together? Then, on New Year’s Day, a day that usually represents a new beginning, one honest, far-too-long buried conversation leads to the end of all that she has come to know. Through a series of emotional highs and lows, she walks a path of self-discovery through the next 12 months of her life, where she meets new friends, discovers a new passion, and uncovers important truths--each step guiding her to the true happiness that was waiting for her on the other side and the opportunity to meet the real Sandra Marie Tiedam.
