The Beautiful Buttons
A Memoir of Survival and TriumphBook - 2010
An award-winning business woman at the helm of her own multi-million dollar company, Catherine Ann is the model of the successful entrepreneur. But it wasn't always like that. In fact, the real story is so chocking it strains belief - abused by a drunken father, a mother who hated her, sexual molestation - including an uncle who pimped her out to his friends, constant hunger and homelessness, pregnant at fifteen, drugs, a jail sentence at eighteen, working in the sex trade, faking her way into medical school, worse relationships, depression, life on the streets and hopelessness. Until finally she takes a step that will put her on a path to success beyond her wildest dreams.
