Roslynne Steinberg struggled all her life with the knowledge that her father blamed her for causing the mental illness of her mother. However she says, "No matter the lot we were cast at birth, and no matter how difficult the journey, life is a beautiful gift." She is now an artist living in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where she is recognized for her painted images of her original home New York, New York.

  • A must read book. Should be made into a movie.
    Hollywood pay attention! Ms. Steinberg succeeds and overcomes all the trials and tribulations life throws out. Very few people can accomplish such a feat - and with success and doing it all her way.

  • A remarkable woman tells her story, one of confronting and surmounting adversities that would have broken many.

  • No warm welcome blanket swaddled Roslynne upon her arrival here. She was swatted; she cried for her very first time; and she discerned that this must be the stuff of life here. Growing up in the Bronx among a group of loving, though somewhat dysfunctional, relatives who 'took her in' she learned that # 1 They loved her as much as they had time for, and # 2 She was on her own. This is a book of timeline family, a gutsy story about peaks and valleys in a life, and a religiously written diary about reinvention - perhaps inspired by her first cry - "I am here!" An honest friend, mentor, and an inspiration to me and others,
    Roslynne personifies Chutzpah! Enjoy!
