Anne’s inspirational memoir, Sunday’s Child is now available to buy



Are you allowing your past to shape who you are today? Are you finding it hard to release the shackles older, stronger people placed on you in your childhood? This book will show you how the perseverance of  one little girl allowed her to reshape a negative destiny into a positive outcome. 

This is an inspiring, true tale of a little girl struggling to rise above appalling living conditions, poverty, violence and abuse.

Sunday’s Child tells of the harrowing systematic abuse of a little girl by her grandmother, while giving the reader a glimpse of the political and cultural climate of 1980’s Guyana.

In a desperate economic crisis, Guyana is forced to resort to food and energy rationing. Acclaimed author Anne Lyken-Garner’s tale picks up on the humorous aspects that the young girl experiences while forced to spend hours in food lines, simultaneously unfolding the sadness and desperation that is her everyday life.

A soldier in Jonestown, where more than nine hundred people committed mass suicide, the young girl’s uncle tells her of the dead bodies he’s seen – but she doesn’t mention the one that she herself has witnessed. When she loses the one person in her life who cares for her – and tries to save her – she knows in her heart that her life is about to end…
