Sneak Peek: Barbara Morrison’s “Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare Mother”

Innocent:  Confessions of a Welfare Mother by Barbara MorrisonToday, we get a sneak peek of author Barbara Morrison’s memoir, Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare Mother:

Growing up in a prosperous neighborhood, B. Morrison was taught that poverty was a product of laziness and public assistance programs only rewarded irresponsibility. However, when her marriage soured, she abruptly found herself an impoverished single mother. Disowned by her parents and facing destitution for herself and her two small sons, she was forced to accept the handout so disdained by her parents and their world: welfare. This dramatic memoir tells how one woman finds and grasps the lifeline that ultimately enables her to become independent.

Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare Mother is available on and other online bookstores. Continue reading “Sneak Peek: Barbara Morrison’s “Innocent: Confessions of a Welfare Mother””
