You ain't nothing and you'll never be nothing!
But at least Destiny had to try.
Born into a life of chaos, from the beginning of her life, Destiny Graham never had a chance. Abused by her father and abandoned by her mother, Destiny searches for the love that she has never known always managing to find herself in lonely bedrooms and staring at the bottom of empty bottles. In her quest to find herself, she must face the person that she has become. A person that she hardly recognizes that bears the bruises from the pain that she has endured all her life. She spends her life running from her demons until she realizes that no matter how far or fast she runs, she cannot outrun herself.
Fragile Destiny is a tale of heartache and sorrow and one woman's triumphant effort to put back together the pieces of her broken life. It is a heart wrenching tale of what happens to a life when it is horribly shattered and the power it takes to put it back together.
Every life has a story. This story is Destiny's.
