Torn: The Melissa Williams Story
Will Melissa choose the path of least resistance or will she continue on a path that keeps her torn and caught in the middle?
About the Book
Melissa Williams, a small town Alabama girl, takes you on her journey as she goes through a very difficult time in her life. Although her high school years were quite memorable, there is one moment in time that stands out more than others. Melissa and three of her closest friends often find themselves hanging out at night clubs. The fact that it was usually on school nights didn't matter much to them. But, on one night in particular, they return to the Club after having left already and this one decision changes Melissa’s life forever. Because of her troubled past, she struggles in relationships with men. But just when she thinks she has it all figured out, an accusation of infidelity causes her to question herself even more. She doesn’t know what to do about it nor does she know where to turn for advice. Melissa’s faith in God is put to the test when that accusation forces her to deal with a seemingly corrupted legal system in Florida. Just like many of us, Melissa wants to do the right things and make better choices, but she keeps finding herself going around in circles and ending up with the same results. Although she is somewhat limited, she doesn’t limit herself to other possibilities of happiness. Will she choose the path of least resistance or will she continue on a path that keeps her torn and caught in the middle? After reading this book, you will begin to look at your own life's struggles in the same way that Melissa had to eventually do. Although Melissa's decisions may not have all worked in her favor at the time, she learned how to depend on the people that God placed in her path.
About the Author
Ella Yolanda Johnson (Campbell), born and raised in Monroeville, AL, is proud to announce her first of many novels to come, Torn: The Melissa Williams Story. Ella's dream is to put Monroeville on the map again for another classic, right next to Harper Lee's, To Kill A Mockingbird. To give life to this Book, Ella takes some of her very own life's experiences, along with the experiences of others, to create a story that will, hopefully, inspire women across the world. Hard times are not specific to any one person, but the one certainty that we will all learn is that the battle is not really ours, but it belongs to the Lord. Ella graduated from Monroe County High School in 1988 and went on to Mobile College to study Communications, with a concentration in Broadcast Journalism, with the hopes of replacing Oprah Winfrey one day. Aside from this, she has had other interests along the way. For a short period of time, Ella served as a model/actress in Tampa, FL. Although these things were exciting, Ella's greatest accomplishment has been the births of her children, her greatest inspirations. Ella currently resides in Orlando, FL and her goal is to, one day, have a Novel worthy enough for television. "If it is to be, it is up to me." (one of her favorite quotes)
