The Spark That Survived

Myra Lewis Williams is only five feet tall, yet she stands as a shining beacon of hope and inspiration to any woman who has ever struggled through life’s deepest depths of despair. In this memoir, with her own brand of unflinching, down-to-earth, humorous, Southern storytelling, she reveals how she crawled out of the darkness and came to stand in the light of building a new life for herself. Myra hopes that her story will show women that they are stronger than they know, and that if she could overcome her own misguided decisions and life’s most tragic misfortunes, they can, too.

As Myra says, “This is a book about how to overcome life’s worst tragedies and your own dumbass decisions.”
