Excerpts from the Memoir
Our first date is coming to an end. I need to get home on time. My tummy is turning with excitement. Is he going to kiss me? Just as the thought passes…
“Can I kiss you, Diana?”
I look up at him with the word “yes” in my eyes. Kane takes my head in his hands and he kisses me. The kiss is soft and slow. I have never been kissed like this before. I follow his lead and kiss him back. This first date, marks the beginning of my deception, including the lies to my parents, and the lies to my friends. Nothing is more important to me now than being with Kane.
“Diana, I love you and I will never let anyone or anything ever hurt you. I promise always to take care of you and I will never leave you.”
I took those words into my heart and soul. I believe that from this night on, I will always be safe and loved by this man. My life could not be more perfect as it is at the very moment.
I need to scream. I need to scream loud and hard. So, I scream. I scream and I scream in hopes that someone will hear me and save me from myself. No one hears my screams. Not Kane, not Victor, not my so-called friend Lisa, not my oldest and closest friend Mel, no neighbors, not even my parents. No one is here to help me. I am alone.
What are people saying?
I have been married twice and I felt every emotion Diana went through This writer is full of heavy past memories and takes you on her journey of the ups and downs of her young adult 1st marriage. You will cry, laugh and at times want to scream at her to wake up! looking forward to memoir #2!
I’m not a mother, however her relentless struggle to get her mind and life on track is astounding. The author is wonderful in person and exceptional with her pen. I am on patient edge waiting for the second installment. Come on Diana, you got us wanting to know, what happens next? ?
As I read it, I was struck by the ups and downs of our character. I felt the pain and the joy she experienced. If you get a chance, buy this book and find a nice quiet place to read this where you will be undisturbed as you will not be able to put it down.
I was referred to this book from a friend who thought I might like it. Turns out I really did. It hit home on many levels to experiences I have dealt with in relationships throughout my life. I resonated most with the lead character Diana who bounces between so many emotions in trying to grasp what is real and what is a lie. It's a true tale of growing up too fast, loving someone who is one thing in the beginning and another soon after. Where you find yourself struggling to not lose yourself and realizing you already have.
This book is very powerful and has many lessons for those who are in love or haven't truly felt what love can do to your soul if false. This book is also for those who have given up everything for the chance at something just to realize that something never was, and at the same time, was leading you right where you needed to be.
A tale we can all relate to and wish we couldn't.
