About the Book

Trish Kelly Adams is a tough, stubborn daughter of Irish farmers in northern Minnesota. She loses her mother young and nursed her father till death, with the help of an American Indian couple who were farming partners of her parents. Growing up near a reservation and eventually living with the Lakota couple, she learns what it means to belong to a family. Being hardworking and doing things for others became a way of life. Trish spent college years in Minneapolis for trauma-nurse training. All that training was needed so she could handle what life was going to throw at her. Mourning her best friend’s death, Trish takes on her friend’ family; it doesn’t go well. Little did she know she would deal with alcoholism, drug addiction, PTSD, ailing parents, kidnapping, death threats, and being in protective custody that felt more like captivity. Will life ever get easy for her?


About the Author

Sandra Prinzing was born the eleventh of fourteen children on a farm in south central Minnesota. From a young age, she daydreamed. Stories played out in her imagination. Sandra finished school and married young. She attended Inver Hills Community College and Mankato State majoring in Psychology. Sandra and Ron had two children and foster children. While working as Secretary/bookkeeper for her son’s company, she went back to college majoring in Business Management. The long marriage to a musician/history buff and a long career in health care has offered her many experiences that further fueled her imagination. To tease her orthodontist, she wrote about her personal experience of wearing braces as an adult. Working with several environmental groups, she was mentioned as a contributor to a pamphlet on Reforestation of Minnesota. Currently living among the pines in northern Minnesota has offered fodder for this book. And hopefully many more to come.
