Fifty-four-year-old Liz Harris is smart, talented, and nearly broke. In desperation, she turns to life coach Rhonda Jackson, whose business is thriving, even though her personal life in not. Can Rhonda help—or will she be stopped as others have by Liz’s halting gait? Unnerved by her visceral reaction to Liz’s disability, Rhonda pushes beyond her own tragic past as they launch a mutual journey to rise above the hurdles to their success.
As Liz starts to resolve her inner conflicts: feelings of rejection, self-doubt, and inadequacy stemming from a childhood accident that left her reliant on a metal crutch to walk; she identifies events that strained the relationship with her adopted parents, doomed her marriage, and stalled her career. However, she’s unwilling to reveal the secret that can set her free, because doing so could irreparably damage the relationship with her sister, Carla. This denial halts her work with Rhonda and breaks their relationship.
Accompanied only by Steve, her forearm crutch, Liz sets out on a sixteen-hundred-mile trip to lay to rest the horror of her childhood trauma, hoping to end the haunting nightmares and transform her innermost resentment for the life she dreamed of—but could never have due to her disability, into one filled with peace, self-fulfillment, and promise for the future.
Inspired by life, the characters share insights to overcome daily adversities that inadvertently or unconsciously place roadblocks for success through one woman’s journey to triumph over a crippling childhood trauma that caused her lifetime disability, thus unleashing her true potential—and possibly yours!
