Tonight's special guest is Myrtle Morrison from Ajax, Ontario, an abuse survivor and author of the book "Mother Dearest, Imperfect Love." Myrtle says, "It's my real life story that I would like to share with the world. It's a book that will take your emotions on a roller costar ride." She warns the reader to "embrace yourself." This is the story of Myrtle's search for love, the challenges she faced in an unkind world, and her triumphant journey to overcome these obstacles to achieve her ultimate dream. Myrtle was born on the island of Jamaica and migrated to Canada in 1976. She's had a tough life but has remained positive throughout. With this book, she is achieving her dream of sharing her story with the world in the hope that it will inspire others to be strong. She bravely tells her life story of a broken girl, who never received love from her mother and never knew the true identity of her father. The story relates how, through determination, Myrtle survived sexual harassment, a near-rape, a murder attempt, and much more to become a respected member of the community, a well-loved mother, and a source of inspiration for others. Now she dedicates her life to helping others, particularly the elderly for whom she has a special love. "Mother Dearest Imperfect Love" has inspired a new generation of survivors.
