If I Live Until Morning is an inspiring memoir filled with insights, powerful lessons in facing pain, and spiritual wisdom. I enjoyed the way the author explores her inner transformation. The work she does on herself has lessons for everyone. I also loved how the author juxtaposes what happens in the outside world with the stirrings and growth of her spirit. This is a story of courage, and at the center of the story is the author’s drive to survive, to heal, to manifest a new reality. If you are looking for an inspiring story, then this is it!
