The Ordinary Doll
Luciana was born into a poor family of migrant workers. She dreamed of a better life. She did not ask for much; wanting only to find love, family, a home, and an enduring future. She wanted nothing more than to dance to the music of life. But on that terrible morning that the monster invaded her home, it seemed that all was lost and she despaired for a future that might have been. With grit, determination, and perseverance, Luciana embarked on a road to recovery; a road that led her to both triumph and failure. To finally succeed, she knew that she must battle the demons of her nightmarish past to turn her dreams into reality. The Ordinary Doll is her story. Those who have read Kiefer’s first offering (The Ordinary Life) may recognize many of the characters in this work.
