Rachel is a riveting true-life story of love, lies, deceit, and survival. Rachel’s adult life began serenely as a teacher in the early 1900’s in British Guiana. Before Rachel could take stock of her life, she had acquired nine children for five men. Her life had spiraled out of control. Could she survive the trauma and the drama of the harsh life lessons thrown at her? Would she ever find love? How did her children survive the psychological cycles that occur in most families living with trauma? Rachel’s fight for survival as a woman in the 1920’s to mid-1950s is fascinating.
