My name is Tara O’Connell, and I’ve always believed we
control our own fate. That life is a journey with many roads, and the choices
we make can shape our future.
Life has presented me with two paths and I’ve chosen
Was it right? Did I make the best decision?
After the uncertainty of the last twelve months, my
destiny is now crystal-clear to me. I have a man I love more than words can
express, a thriving business, and the best friends anyone could ask for. But
just when I thought I could put the turmoil of my past behind me and move on, a
life-changing phone call has rocked me to the core and turned my life upside-down
To make matters worse, influences outside my control
have taken hold and are shattering my perfect world.
But some things are worth fighting for.
Dreams can come true and I’ll do everything
in my power to make them happen. But dreams can also be smashed into tiny
pieces, and no matter how hard we fight or how hard we wish for something to
be, sometimes with the hand we’ve been dealt, we can never win.
