More about Safe From the Past: There is no future in the past.

A truly inspiring, deeply personal tale of perseverance in the face of unimaginable hardships, Safe from the Past makes clear the restorative power of an education.

Through her own hard work and determination, Patricia Miller Mauro succeeds in leaving behind a bitter world — one of extreme poverty, violent adults, and a seemingly inescapable cycle of insecurity, instability, and despair — for a bright future fueled by higher education and a rewarding career.

Told in an open, honest voice with the deepest sincerity, the author’s life story serves as a rousing inspiration to those with the desire to create a better life than the one they are currently living.

No matter how helpless you feel, everyone has the power to shape their own life.
