The Name I Call Myself by Beth Moran

Image result

Faith is living a modern day Cinderella story as she prepares to marry Prince Charming. She was orphaned at a young age, raised by an older brother who struggled with addiction, and abused by his ne'er do well friend.  But all that heartache seems to finally be behind her. Just as she's in the throes of planning her high class wedding, those past struggles come back to haunt her. Unfortunately, she hasn't told her fiance anything about her humble beginnings so she's having to face these new challenges alone or muster the courage to be honest.

Faith has created a life that she's proud of but her working class background doesn't impress her fiance's family. Faith's future mother-in-law pretty much bosses everyone around (including Faith) and poor Perry just wants to avoid conflict. Faith really only wants to have a say in two things: the location of her wedding and the dress she wears. She doesn't realize she's declared war by insisting on those things.

Faith is faced between the choice of blindly following along the path marked out for her or jumping off and forging her own path. Readers will laugh and cry over Faith's struggles and will cheer at her personal victories. Will Faith's "happily ever after" be with or without Perry?  Grab your copy of The Name I Call Myself to find out!
