With Dick Clark introducing American Bandstand, rock and roll music taking a solid hold, and hairstyles changing, a revolution was taking place. Movies with R-ratings and topless bars with go-go dancers played a role in the culture, and racing erupted into an all-time favorite sport with teens. A new generation was born, one that changed the world forever.
But these were not happy, carefree times for all, including author Christi Golden-Clark. A pretty, naïve teenager, she left home to escape the physical abuse of her adopted father, but life dealt her another blow. In Famous Last Words: ?If I Can?t Have You, No One Else Can,? she shares the details of her tumultuous relationship with a teenage boy who had the looks and charm of James Dean. However, he became insanely jealous and physically abusive. Despite these faults, Christi loved him and hoped her love would change him. Marriage and a baby didn?t improve the situation.
A dramatic and compelling memoir, Golden-Clark narrates a young life filled with physical and mental abuse that culminated in her being shot in December of 1969. Famous Last Words: ?If I Can?t Have You, No One Else Can? tells of her struggles to make it on her own against the odds of threats, stalking, and attempted murder. With her family now grown, she shares her story of abuse to encourage women to seek help and refuge before they and their families experience unnecessary abuse and domestic violence from a parent, partner or spouse.
L'autore: Christi Golden-Clark lost her ability to walk, but hasn't let her disability hold her back. She is an independent businesswoman with a degree in business administration and has held licenses in real estate and insurance and has a child development certificate. Christi has five children, twelve grandchildren, and two dogs. She is the founder and director of Overcomers of Domestic Violence and Writers Reign of Asheville and is also involved in many church activities.
