Title: The Evolution of Elizabeth Grant
Author: Paul R. Meredith
Imagine a six-year-old girl being taken from abusive parents and her three siblings and placed in an orphanage. What will become of her? It is not a pretty picture. But Young Teresa Harden endured and evolved from this rough start in life to a life beyond expectation for most people. Once adopted, educated and raised by loving parents, her life takes on challenges that most of us will never face. Her life as a young woman introduces her to life-changing events that will eventually cause her to live a very secret and often shameful life of crime and prostitution during the middle years of her existence. Then after a happenstance meeting with a very special man, she feels she has to change her name and run away to save him. Years later after being found once again by that special man, her life begins the evolution into a deep love and a life filled with treasures even she could hardly believe.
