Book Description

Jan. 1 1996
For many the '60s were a time of love, peace and experimentation. For Mary Lawrence, The Age of Aquarius was the start of a descent into hell from which she would not emerge for fifteen years.

Mary was put into residential school by her grandmother, who had no idea of what residential school was like. She just wanted Mary, her brothers and sisters to have a good education. At school, Mary first learned that life can be less than just. For the next thirty-odd years, she would endure life on the street, drug addiction, spousal violence, prison, and finally life-threatening illness before she would start the long climb to recovery.
