Wednesday's Writer - Adelle Laudan

A woman’s strength is beyond physical muscle or brute force. The strength of a woman is one of intuition, pride and determination—emotional toughness that protects children and loved ones, and enables her to stand up to the more masculine energies in life. This is what I believe distinguishes woman’s strength from that of a man.

In my new series, Women of Strength, I will introduce you to women from different walks of life, women who rise above adversity and physical limitations.  The first three women are Juliana, Rosa, and Shani—three very different women with a common bond. All of them are on a journey of healing, self-discovery, and hope. These women must conquer fears, forgive past wrongs, and come to terms with their inner selves.
Do difficulties in life really make one stronger? Can a shattered heart ever heal enough to love again? When one’s life seems hopeless, what lengths will one go to find hope?
Let me introduce you to the first three…

Shani is a woman of color, adopted by loving parents. After her mothers' untimely death, she learns of a deep, dark secret that makes her question everything about her life and those who loved her.
How often do we search for answers and find they are not necessarily what we want to hear? Is time a great healer, or are some things unforgivable?

Juliana spent the entire duration of her marriage a prisoner in her home. Subject to unspeakable abuse, her escape came in the form of her husbands' sudden death. She must now step into a world she had almost forgotten existed... Join Juliana on her healing journey where she learns Love IS Good.

Rosa is deaf. She was adopted by loving parents after her mother died in childbirth. Rosa teaches deaf children music. At her 21st birthday party she crosses paths with the manager of the band, Devon Barnes. The first encounter is not, pleasant when Devon mistakes her deafness for being rude. Is Devon simply another man who sees her being deaf as also being mentally challenged? Why is she attracted to such a man?
