In her book “Colour of my Heart,” Stacy has created a window to the world through the eyes of an innocent child. The reader experiences Stacy’s world as she grows from a young, poverty-stricken, malnourished girl into a beautiful, talented, productive office worker and mother of two girls of her own. She has lived through the tragedy of the war in Bosnia, which for me was educational and enlightening, having only seen the war through the lens of Western news. She also shares her experiences living with family dysfunction and the impact that has had on her, eventually contributing to a full-stop breakdown. Writing about painful experiences and then having to revisit them during the editing process, can be difficult and draining and must have been a challenge for her. There is an element of sadness and grief in her book. However, It is also inspirational as she builds, gets knocked down, and then finds the courage and strength to rebuild time and time again, ending on a promising road of redemption and recovery. This book is sure to be a bestseller.
