Finding Me in Spite of Myself:

A Memoir by Beth Lowry

A survivor’s story of victory over domestic violence, physical suffering, and emotional bankruptcy, showing how she turned a nightmare into a dream come true. There is not always a clear beginning to the cycle of abuse. For some, it might start with the first bruise; for others, it starts with the subtleness of isolation, demeaning remarks, and financial control.

Beth never had a chance at a normal life. Riddled with abandonment, insecurity, and low self-esteem, she propelled herself into the arms of abusive men, from drug addicts to control freaks. Beth found little respite, save her love of horses and an uncanny talent for her work. As Beth moves from one abuser to the next, she seems bent on her own destruction and stares death in the face. Her recklessness catches up to her, and she finds that a most unexpected surprise may be the one thing to give her strength to end the cycle of her abuse.


Finding Me in Spite of Myself: A Memoir is one woman’s unapologetically honest account of perseverance amid her physical trials, addiction, and chronic depression. She shows us how she found relief from suffering, gained moral courage, and rallied as a single mother. You, too, can be a survivor, find happiness, and live life to the fullest. There is hope, and nothing is impossible.
