Whole Heart is an honest and inspiring memoir that acknowledges pain and will move you to tears, but eventually, it will get your heart filled with hope, joy, and aspiration. This is an inspiring true story that proves darkness can lead to light, and joy is possible on the other side of pain. 

Author Michelle Felix pours out a lifetime of powerful confessions in her moving memoir. Michelle opens her whole heart and recounts her life, starting from her childhood in Africa to her transitions and current life in America. During her childhood, Michelle had her world turned upside down, as she was forced to face several family issues that deeply affected her and made her feel stuck in a cycle of pain, regret, and immense grief. Readers are pulled into the psyche of the author as a vulnerable young girl trying to navigate the complexity of life and isolation from the only world she’s ever known.

However, even with the hurt that painted her childhood, Felix imbues this book with hope for change and a spirit of resilience. Michelle is determined to find healing and turn her pain into purpose, even when she sometimes feels weighed down by the complexities of her past.

This memoir offers an inspiring and intimate look into the life of a girl who fought her way through loss, uncertainty, and rejection. It tells the story of author Michelle Felix’s incredible journey of perseverance and redemption. If you have ever felt alone, worthless, lost, or as though you cannot rise from the ashes of the pain of your life, this memoir is for you.  Whole Heart: One Woman’s Incredible and Heartbreaking Journey from Africa to America is available for purchase at Kona Stories (in store only).
