Debut Memoirist C.V. Harris recounts with remarkable vividness and detail, her story of growing up on Chicago's South Side. She takes the reader inside her life recounting the devastation endured from the death of her mother, to psychological and physical abuse by a boyfriend, to being homeless. Stubborn Stains is unnerving at times, but its heart wrenching content draws the reader deeper. C.V. Harris' unyielding strength of character to overcome her heartaches and emotional struggles are triumphant as she courageously moves beyond her past, to victory. After you finish Stubborn Stains, you will find yourself thinking about its content long after the last page has been read. C.V. Harris is nothing short of a master storyteller.
