Description


The heartrending true story of foster care abuse and child homelessness

In this story of perseverance in the face of adversity, Regina Calcaterra recounts her childhood in foster care and on the streets and how she and her savvy crew of siblings managed to survive years of homelessness, abandonment, and abuse.

Calcaterra s emotionally powerful memoir reveals how she endured a series of foster homes and intermittent homelessness in the shadow of the Hamptons, and how she rose above her past while fighting to keep her brother and three sisters together.

Beautifully written and heartbreakingly honest, "Etched in Sand" is an unforgettable reminder that, regardless of social status, the American dream is still within reach for those who have the desire and the determination to succeed.
