“We are defined not by the station in life into which we are born, nor by our pedigree, race, or religion, but by the choices we make.” Robin McGraw
A family is a bond between a father, mother, and children in the union of marriage. How can you call it family when you are born outside marriage? How can a child understand the term “you belong to the other family”? Michelle Jackson wrote this book Lost in Her Blue Eyes would make you cry, laugh, understand, and most important to love unconditionally. She lives in the Northern part of Ohio, and her greatest inspiration comes from her son.

Miranda has strong personality having red hair and blue eyes. After a year, she was born, her parents got separated. How can a small child understand that your father married another woman and not your Mom? Can you think Miranda's vulnerability of growing up? Is she mentally and physically abused? She also has younger twin sisters who make her life horrible like Cinderella's stepsisters. In the toughest time of her life, she wishes, “if only my Dad is here right beside me.” She needs her mother who will protect her with warm understanding and patience, but to her, she was just dreaming.

From time to time, they moved from one place to another. The harsh thing in her life is living with drug dens around and experienced a bullet across their room. Who will attend to her screaming, and help her calm down out of fears? Living with her Dad sometimes is a bad experienced because of her stepmother. Why her parent let her experience like hell? How can she love them beyond pain? Her parents must be the role model, but not on the positive side of life. What will be the life awaiting her when she gets married? She was afraid to repeat the history of her parents.

Everyone can relate to the story, especially this phrase, “never be a prisoner of your past.” I like the author's description of Miranda's strong personality of fighting for love. She cannot change the people who hurt her, but she let the pain change her life. Her fighting spirit against all odds encourages me to be strong. I admire the author's reminder to parents that children have a way of making their parents do the right thing.

Lost in Her Blue Eyes is easy to read, and you will feel that Miranda is talking to you. It is a short story that has 10 chapters with different letters to Miranda’s loved ones to express that she loves them unconditionally beyond hurts. The only downside I found was some grammatical errors and typos, but I will rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. Everybody can relate to the story, and the life lesson applies in today’s generation. I will recommend this book to all women who cannot forgive easily, maybe this book can help them understand. To all gentlemen also who like to be treated as a king for them to understand that they must protect their queen.

Sounds like a painful story, but it also reflects on the harsh reality that parents decisions could bring upon their kids. After all it's parents mistakes that children ultimately has to pay. They were born because we made them to not because they asked for it. Thanks for sharing!

It's too bad about the errors. I agree, though, that we shouldn't be prisoners of our past. It sounds like this is a great story for us all in spite of the typos. Thanks for sharing with us!

I agree, children oftentimes are the one who suffers so badly.
