"A Life Divided" describes the difficulties she encountered in life due to the color of her skin and her married life and how she came to overcome them. She describes how, during the racial segregation era, she had to stop her schooling because of the troubles she went through due to being born into a white family with a different skin color. She managed some schooling in Dillon, and later on fall for and marries Chris. She was appalled to see Chris unraveling as a womanizing, abusive, manipulative husband, contrary to his nerdy past. Thirty-two years of marriage ended in divorce after countless dramatic confrontation between the two of them. In the end she received the settlement that set her free of him. She turned to God and mused about the changing social landscape when race and color had now largely become a thing of the past, and-at the time of her writing-a black person was even running for president of United States.

About the Author:

Helen was born in Cheraw, South Carolina on April 8, 1943. Her biological parents were white and lived in Society Hill, South Carolina. Helen didn't know her father very well; he died when she was very young. Helen was the third oldest of two girls and two boys. Her mother later remarries and three more children were born. Because of skin tone and curly hair, Helen was sent to live with an African-American Family in a town nearby where no one knew of her background. She was educated and raised in the African-American community but continued to have a relationship with her biological family. Helen married an African-American that she grew up with and had two children a daughter and a son. She returned to college and received a degree in education. Helen became a member of Delta Sigma Theta sorority which is primarily composed of African-American women. After enduring a marriage of thirty-two years because of infidelity and abuse, her marriage ended after five years of court drama, and the authenticity of her birth certificate prompted Helen to write her memoirs hoping to reach other women and those that have experienced similar difficulties in life.
