After living an average life in Buffalo, New York, author Lisa Marie Runfola gave it all up to marry her paramour and live abroad as an expat-only to return a few years later to support her ex-husband and children through his cancer and eventual death. In A Limitless Life in a Powerless World, she tells the story of a woman who changed her life after a lightbulb moment, having no idea her new life would change her in turn. Through parenthood, divorce, and grief, Runfola's experiences bring introspection and inspiration to those who are looking to find limitless opportunities in powerless circumstances. This powerful memoir follows her journey across an ocean and back again. Quotes and questions for reflection encourage a hard look at your own life and how you can reframe your experiences to help you grow. With raw honesty and radical self-acceptance, A Limitless Life in a Powerless World calls you to face what scares you, speak from the heart, and love your own messy, beautiful, perfect truth.
