Book Summary

Walking over Eggshells is Lucinda's story, raised by a widowed mother who suffered from Narcissistic Personality Disorder - a mither who couldn't love her. For decades Lucinda  jumped through hoops to gain her acceptance. It was only after her mother died that she discovered the problem, but by that time she had made an unsuitable marriage to a Walter Mitty character who took her to eight different countries, often one step ahead of the creditors. It was a life of incredible ups and downs from mansion to hovel, from millionaire to poverty in a rollercoaster whirlwind of events that lave you breathless.


Silver medal winner Readers Favorites - Inspirational 2016.  Five star review Readers Favorite.

I can't recommend this book highly enough! An excellent read chronicling events in the life of the author who overcame adversity again and again, and achieved so much in her life against all the odds, having to resettle and virtually start again in several different countries from Libya to Africa. Very well written and I really could not put this book down. 

I had read several books by Lucinda E Clarke before coming to this and I recognised the African connection now that I can see where life has taken this talented author. I was a fan before and this has only reaffirmed that this is an author with style and skill.

This well written narrative holds numerous messages that most everyone can take something away from this story, and apply it to their own lives, or the lives of others.

This remains one of the most readable biographies I have ever read.
