The Hooker's Daughter 

with Dale Stanten

My memoir, The Hooker’s Daughter, is a story of a life dictated by shame and discontent.  It traces the path of a young woman from childhood, through bewildered adolescence, to wife, mother, widow, successful entrepreneur and author. The story is about trauma, survival, and triumph.

While I should have been playing with Barbie & Ken, I was dealing with "Johns" who were ringing the doorbell constantly – a nightmare no kid should experience. 

My childhood fantasy was to have a mom who made chicken soup and a father who supported his family…just like other households in our tight-knit Jewish community. 

Instead, friends were forbidden to play with me and I was thrown out of the Girl Scouts because I, too, might be a sinner.

I thought I could fix my past. I married and had two beautiful children. When my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor, diabetes, and developed blindness, my world crashed again. His prognosis was two months but he survived six grueling years. At 37, I was widowed and struggled to make ends meet.
