UnChain My Legacy

Pain. Denial. Struggle. Poverty. Disappointment. We all make choices, and sometimes we immediately see the results or consequences; some good… some not so good. And, some have a devastating effect on those we love for generations to come. 

What do we do about those? 

In Unchain My Legacy, each author exposes the truth of their stories; revealing the decisions that have threatened to shackle them, along with the future of their children and their children’s children in a never-ending chain of bondage…

It’s time to break the links; to look our choices in the face and say, No more.
