Inhaltsangabe: When Donna-Marie Cooper O Boyle was growing up, she had no thought of one day becoming a popular author and television host. She was immersed in life as the seventh of eight children in a Catholic family, a life that was sometimes carefree and fun, dancing the Polkas at family weddings, and enjoying picnics in her back yard. Other times, life for her was very dark and tarnished with struggles and pain, struggles that she felt were best left a secret. She turned to God for help as she became increasingly misunderstood by her family and her peers. Life took some harrowing turns, and Donna-Marie was forced to deal with a crazed man who took away her freedom and held her hostage. Eventually escaping the nightmare of her prison, she married and began raising her family. But she couldn t seem to get out from under the shadow of the Cross. She lost three babies to miscarriage, struggled with her husband s drinking problem, was abandoned by him before giving birth to her third living child. Raising her family alone, she was subjected to abusive neighbors and appalling living conditions, struggling with these challenges as she held onto hope for better days.Her white knight finally came on the scene, or so she thought. Another challenging adventure ensued, thrusting Donna-Marie into a more affluent yet controlled life. Prince Charming had charmed his way into her life, but under the veneer of his charm was a dark side. Survival mode took over as Donna-Marie had to fight for her life and for her children s safety. By God s providence, a saint or two crossed paths with Donna-Marie and greatly impacted her life. One was Blessed Mother Teresa who became her close friend and spiritual mother. The Kiss of Jesus is a powerful true story of a well-known Catholic author who faced great suffering and rejection, but through faith, hope and love she found redemption and the beauty of the Cross."
Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle is a Catholic author, a radio and television host, and an inspirational speaker known and admired from coast to coast. Yet with all of her public exposure, she has revealed very little about her personal history, that is, until now. When she discovered that sharing her struggles gives encouragement to others, she was persuaded to write this story of her life.
Growing up in a Polish-American Catholic family, Donna-Marie was blessed with hard-working parents who provided a stable home for their eight children. At times her childhood was golden and carefree, but other times it was tarnished by pain that she felt was best left unspoken as she sought God for help and strength.
After she left home after high school, her path took some harrowing turns. A Vietnam veteran fiancE snapped and held her against her will. She suffered pregnancy loss, serious illness, divorce, and single motherhood. Perhaps her greatest trial was an epic custody battle in which she needed to defend both her reputation as a mother and the safety of her five children.
Yet through all the dark valleys, Donna-Marie kept the fire of her faith burning. Helping her to see the beauty of the crosses in her life, and to rely on the presence and the providence of God, were saintly souls who became her friends and mentors. One of these was Blessed Mother Teresa, who was her confidant and spiritual mother for ten years.
