Cindy Joseph makes her debut in the world of publishing with the release of “A Cinderella Story -Truth Untold” (published by Partridge Singapore). Within the pages of this book, she candidly recounts the journey that molded her into the woman she is today, from her challenging upbringing to the trials and tribulations of love and marriage. With raw honesty, she captures life’s relentless demands, the arduous battle against grief, the process of healing the mind, and the discovery of the inner strength that empowers her to rise.
Born and raised in a modest small town, Joseph aspired to break the cycle of her parents’ hardworking lives. Yet, life had a different script in mind, one that revolves around resilience and the unwavering determination to rise after every fall. Her story is one of endurance and courage, the audacity to persist and live by her own standards, regardless of the challenges she faced. It is a story of life in its most unadulterated form, where she finds her own version of a happily ever after through self-discovery and the battle against inner demons. In her own words, Joseph narrates her story, hoping that her readers will discover their own greatness within, enabling them to conquer life’s obstacles and fulfill their true purpose.
“In a world where everyone seeks perfection and perceives failure as the ultimate downfall – be it in marriage, career, or the inability to bear children – this book stands as a testament to a woman’s ability to weather many storms, endure depression, navigate emotional roller coasters, combat inner demons, and confront isolation while emerging victorious. The societal judgments that silently weigh upon individuals need not define who we are. It’s time to redefine our existence on our own terms. Today’s younger generation often seeks the path of least resistance and may be unprepared to face life’s harsh realities. This book serves as a beacon, illuminating the fact that there is a glimmer of hope at the end of the tunnel. For those grappling with various forms of hardship and depression, it offers solace, conveying the message that it’s okay not to be okay,” Cindy asserts.
When asked about her desired takeaway for readers, Cindy emphatically responds, “That we all possess the power to rise. We should revel in life’s joys and pursue our heart’s desires because life is fleeting, and it can slip away in the blink of an eye, whether it’s our own life or the lives of those we hold dear.”
