CUT THE STRINGS is the true story of a mother who experienced the agony of watching her daughter walk away from everything right and good, ending up in a life of degradation and shame while each of them lived in their own reality. It is also the story of a daughter's desperate search for a life of fulfillment and acceptance who found herself instead chained in a prison of emptiness, addictions and despair. Best of all, it is a story about GOD, the one who relentlessly pursued a willful young woman, protected her life, and sustained a family through it all. Co-authored by Sharon and her daughter, Amy, CUT THE STRINGS offers a life line of encouragement and hope to parents who are heartbroken and hurting over their wayward and rebellious children. Cut the Strings, in my judgment, is a must read... And for those in the middle of the heartbreak currently, Cut the Strings will give a vital 'How to cope and how to overcome' plan. -David Mainse, founder of Crossroads Christian Communications Inc. & Crossroads Television System (CTS) Sharon Cavers is a freelance writer, the designer and author of Garden Path Inspirations Greeting Cards, and an avid gardener.
