A memoir of a minority woman growing up in the ghettos of New York City shows how anyone can become someone successful. Although, Mirian’s struggles started from birth she firmly believed in many things such as castles, knights in shining armor, and a big house with a picket fence. It was those dreams that kept her spirit alive when life became too horrendously painful. Mirian Detres was not only born disabled, but she has been mentally, physically, and sexually abused. Her memoirs include being locked in a closet at the age of 9 for a year, hospitalized in a mental institution as an adult for approx. 2 years and received shock treatments, been beaten as a wife, a druggy and living in the streets as a homeless woman with her babies. It was the love she had for her children that caused her to go through a metamorphosis in life. The change was so drastic, that not even her own family recognized her. Mirian Detres’s memoirs not only takes you into a world of poverty, abuse, and neglect but it plunges the reader into a dark rabbit hole of struggles with drugs and crime only to come out on the other side as an educational scholar with two masters, doctorate of philosophy, spokes person for battered women, and a successful mother of five children. This is a true story of a woman without any role models became one herself.

It cannot rain, but it pours; or, the first part of London strowed with Rarities. Being a full ... account of a fierce ... Indian Deer that beat the breath out of Mr U****k's body; as also how Madam Faustina ... has been taken hoarse; ... likewise a true relation of the arrival of the two ... Black Arabian Ambassadors. ... N.B. The second part of this book by mistake of the Printer was published first. [A satire, by Dean Swift?]
