About the Book

From an early age, author Kiki Opal faced a host of challenges. Her single mom battling multiple sclerosis and later dying. A father who isn’t there. Opal herself fighting to overcome depression. A sister who often pretends none of it is happening. A grandmother trying to cope with it all, and a grandfather who is affected by it all more than he lets on. In Footprints of Mud, Opal shares her journey through the good times and the challenging, to the ones she thought she’d never recover from to the ones that made her realize that the dark times make the bright times brighter. From reflections on her first memories, to revelations through teenage journal entries, to letters from her mother, Opal narrates the story she promised her mom she would tell. Footprints of Mud chronicles a journey of sickness, health, depression, and finding your way.
