Will of my Own
by Füsun Atalay
Fascinating life stories do not belong only to famous personalities. Sometimes, ordinary people also live extraordinary lives and have incredible narratives to deliver. For author Füsun Atalay, her life – filled with different angles of trust and betrayal – is one of those worth sharing. Released through Xlibris, Will of my Own: A Memoir unravels a candid perspective of Atalay’s journey—her past, unresolved questions, and dysfunctional encounters—in order to make sense of her present and guide her in her future.
Spanning continents and countries, Will of my Own: A Memoir contains the author’s life story, her unique observations, heartfelt reflections, and her once unspoken thoughts concerning her family and relationships. It describes her relentless struggle to understand and connect major events in her life in her attempt to find a new will to live in the face of losing those she loved and letting go of those she believed would never hurt her as they have.
“I believe however, that truth, no matter how painful some of it may be, needs to be acknowledged before it can be understood and owned,” Atalay reveals. “I hoped that by facing the truths I’ve been reluctant to face, I will be able to accept them, give them their voice and release some of the ghosts I have been living with.”Superbly written, Will of my Own: A Memoir is a straight from the heart, poetic, sensuous, sincere, spiritual and at times a naively humorous book written as a special legacy to her daughter and son for the serenity that the knowledge of truth brings.
