Mississippi Moon: A Survivor's Story

Mississippi Moon: A Survivor's Story by Theresa M. Lennon

“Mississippi Moon: A Survivor’s Story” (ISBN 1448668247) by Theresa M. Lennon is the personal account of her life and the struggles and challenges she faced along the way. Her journey was quite difficult and, at times, heartbreaking, but her experiences transformed her into the successful person she is today.

The injustices she faced led Lennon to believe that the police aren’t always fair. She saw how the ones who were supposed to protect all citizens weren’t always on the side of the homeless and working class. In “Mississippi Moon,” she describes the encounters she had with them, as well as the opposition she faced when dealing with law enforcement.

Lennon’s growing exhaustion with telling people about her life led her to pen her memoir. She wanted those who inquired about it to be able to read it all at once. She shows readers her life as a hotel maid working plenty of hours to barely scrape by. She explains why she gave up her two children for adoption, and why her marriage fell apart. She takes readers through her descent into mental illness and addiction, while showing how she was able to dig herself out of the self-destructive hole.

“This is a very real account that sometimes gets in your face, but in the end, it is very honest and gritty,” Lennon says.
