Ohana: One Woman's Battle with Love, Death, & Destiny
Theia Mey, author

Adult; Memoir; (Market)

Theia Mey was always the rebel in her close-knit Spanish family. She left her home village on the outskirts of Madrid, traveling to London to learn English, and eventually moved to the United States. In Florida she discovered a lush world whose beauty hid painful relationships with two men: the first led her into alcoholism and addiction, and the second pathologically abused her and her three children for many years. In the midst of her struggles, Mey was diagnosed with breast cancer, underwent multiple surgeries as she fought for her life, and worked constantly to keep her children together in their “ohana,” the family she had constructed for them. Her story is a heartbreaking one of failure and strength through faith, of the cruelty of intimacy and the kindness of friends – in other words, a narrative of real life. Readers will see parts of themselves in Mey during her dark days, but also hopes for a better way of living in her triumphs and gained wisdom.

Posted on 1st publication: Thriver: Happiness is a Choice by Tori Kinsey. Ohana is the revised edition of Thriver:

At first I was just caught by the mention of a battle against that scourge: cancer. As I, (and most of us) know someone close fighting this battle, I was interested enough to take a chance. There are many heartfelt and difficult moments relived in words and I sometimes felt the relief the author must have felt when putting these experiences to paper... or kindle as it were.

Very nice work and worth a look if you enjoy warm, positive, and emotional stories.

Ohana, is a fantastic story of grief, loss and triumph over it all. Very inspiring. Makes one realize that we are not promised another day and that pain is inevitable but suffering is a choice.

This story is truly inspiring. It really opened my eyes to a complete new perspective on life and reality! "Today is only as great as we make it and tomorrow isn't promised to anyone." To know that a single person/woman, can experience so much pain and hardship, and still wake up every morning with strength, and excitement about life…knowing that each day, is a new fight to survive and stay alive… gives me immense hope! Happiness truly is a state of mind, and thrives within each and every one of us… only we have the power to make that light brighter. I am so happy I took the time to read this book…worth every penny! Delivers an incredibly positive and inspirational message.

A forthright account that clearly delineates the actions taken and experienced by a multi faceted woman. The ability to transcend the numerous obstacles truly serves as an inspiration and the book is a fantastic read for anyone who needs to be inspired.

POWERFUL, GRIPPING, RAW! If I could post more than 5 stars I would. This story is not for those looking for a HEA. This story is real. If Theia had the courage to live it, I have the courage to read it. Ohana will leave you exhausted and battered, but tremendously hopeful. Hope, determination and strength resonant throughout Theia's entire story, not surprisingly, because they're resonant throughout Theia's soul. I wish Theia all the best! Read the book! It will certainly change your own perspective about life.

Posted on 1st publication: Thriver: Happiness is a Choice by Tori Kinsey. Ohana has been professionally revised/edited/formatted:

Ohana tells the heart-wrenching life story of author, Theia Mey, who triumphs over the struggles of breast and bone cancers, physical and mental abuse, drug addiction, poverty, and the ultimate loss of a child through the deception and manipulation of one she held dear to her heart. In this autobiography, Mey truly exemplifies and proves truth behind the saying "mind over matter." With all obstacles coming at her, sometimes all at once, Mey's choice to push forward to see another horrific day is an inspiration to all those struggling day to day just to hold on. Her life is a story of tragedy yet Mey comes out triumphant over all of her difficulties. The one thing that she clings to, that "happiness is a choice," gives this woman a hope and a hunger for life when life only brought her grief. Her story educates those who have fallen into their own personal despair that life does not have to be chaotic and gloomy despite the circumstances that surround one being. Rather, Mey teaches us of a woman's inner strength and will to survive when all odds are against her. Truly a motivational book, I would highly recommend "Ohana" to any woman who feels as though their life is caving in on them and have lost all hope. This book will definitely "shine a light at the end of the tunnel."

This book is a true life story of a woman who was faced with series of real life obstacles, but believe Success occurs when your Dreams get bigger than your Excuses. It is a must read for everybody, especially young ladies. This book taught us few important lessons in life, that the tallest oak in the forest was once a little nut that held its ground. That your heart is just a beat box for the song of your life and that People change, things go wrong, rap happens, but LIFE goes on. Last but not the least, that happiness often sneaks in a door you did not think was open.Thanks Theia Mey for this inspirational and motivational book.

I like this book because it's an honest portrayal of a woman's struggles through the multiple tragedies of her life. The author is frequently blinded by her pain and the never ending obstacles such as drugs, poverty, an abusive partner, and cancer. The beauty of this story is that she grows in wisdom and perspective despite the odds...a true inspiration!!
