How can you ever hope to become a well-adjusted adult when your only role models are violent, bullying teachers?
The Days That Don’t Disappear is a true story set during the 1970s in a Scottish, Catholic primary school.
This is the first-hand tale of four years of violent bullying towards children, not from other children, but from school teachers who were in a position of trust. An honest account of a less than idyllic childhood and a story of growing up and learning what life can really be like if you happen to be unfortunate enough.
“She was in her mid-forties. Tall, maybe six foot, or maybe she just seemed taller to me back then. She had a mass of curly black and grey hair along with the most sunken-in, dark-ringed eyes I had ever seen. It was the same pattern as before. Belt every day, hair pulling, screaming fits and the day she slammed my head into the desk that was it, that was enough, this was the day my inexplicable illness began.”
“Day after day, month after month, continual fear, wondering which way she was going to blow next and what little thing would kick off her volatile temper. I was given the belt nearly every other day for something or other and I simply came to expect it. Get a question wrong or miss church on Sunday with the rest of the class and her best friend would be out of the drawer. That piece of brown leather, half an inch thick, two inches wide and a foot long. She would raise it high above her head then bring it down sharply over your outstretched palm.”
Recollecting? Contemplating? Tired of sifting out meaningful phrases to highlight through each lengthy page of a book? In a very easy-to-read narrative form, this book shares some downright off-the-record soul-searching moments of true-life twin souls. We usually picture soul mate relationships as happy, fulfilled, romantic eternal love, but soul mates and twin souls have their own share of tribulations upon striving for a happy ending. If we would seize a thought what a soul mate life is behind the curtain, or even behind the laughter, we may wonder how every soul mate couple had survived and “made it”, and what lessons they have gained throughout separation how they have reckoned, “You make me a better person.” With her beloved, Jason, Stella Hart co-authors a forthcoming book, “Our Lives Are Connected”. For the first time in writing regime, “Our Lives” applies the technique of Metaphysics to construe a twin soul relationship scientifically in the laws of Quantum Mechanics in biblical context, delineating the nature of souls and afterlife.
Francis Coco was fourteen years old when she was sent to Morris Hill Hospital, a Psychiatric Hospital for teenagers with behavioral problems. Thirty years later she decides to go back in time and try and find what brought her to Morris Hill in the first place. Looking for some kind of closure, she pulls out her old journals from 1986 and begins searching for the answers she seeks. This is a book about her time at the hospital and mostly, about her relationship with her father, a man she was always looking to for unconditional love and a man who, as hard as he tried, just could not give it.

Kashina is familiar with the face of pain, suffering, and rejection. She always had a desire to succeed, but that desire eventually got lost in her efforts to cope with life. It was with the help of God and a total stranger that enabled her to break down the barriers of shame, self-hate, and guilt and experience a divine transformation.Her story will challenge you to: • Allow God to minister healing to your deepest wounds.• Open your heart to forgive those who hurt you.• Allow yourself to become the beautiful gem you were created to be.
