Surviving Sybil: My Quest for Justice is a work of non-fiction in the workplace, family life, and motivational writing subgenres. It is based on true events and was penned by author Roberta Conner from her own experiences. In this harrowing tale of an underdog trapped in a nasty situation, we discover how Roberta felt when under the thumb of a merciless boss at the IRS who discriminated against her and derailed her promising upward career path. Along with the help of her supportive partner, Roberta campaigns to the EEOC for justice, but the road is far from straight and simple to gain any sense of justice, and to recover from the damage that one person in a position of power can do.
After experiencing some of the fantastically humorous and uplifting work of this author, I was fascinated to delve deeper into her life and experience the struggles and more difficult times. Author Roberta Conner is equally as talented in expressing her deepest lows as she is with her highs, and the journey she undergoes throughout this work is quite something to experience even second-hand through her eyes. From the uncertainty of initial attitudes and clashes to the deep, sinking feeling of knowing something very wrong is happening to her, Conner maintains a sense of realism and confidence in her authorial style that lets you know that life is far from easy, but perseverance and the support of those who love you will see you right in the end. Overall, Surviving Sybil is a fascinating must-read for anyone working in similar establishments, and for readers, in general, seeking original, high-quality non-fiction that reminds us to stay strong in tough times.
