Hettie and Me is the story of Heather from early childhood to her late forties. Abused by a family member, Heather writes of her struggles: with relationships and with herself; and the many paths she took as she worked through the effects of what had happened to her. With Heather always is her shadow and ally Hettie. Heather takes the reader with her on her journey as she unravels the pieces of who she is, and why, and puts them back together again. Heather's story is shocking and terribly sad at times, and heart-warming at others as she emerges a strong and caring woman, surrounded by a loving family.
