Etched in Sand by Regina Calcaterra

From Goodreads:

"Regina and her four siblings survived an abusive and painful childhood only to find themselves faced with the challenges of the foster-care system and intermittent homelessness in the shadows of Manhattan and the Hamptons.

A true-life rags-to-riches story, Etched in Sand chronicles Regina’s rising above her past, while fighting to keep her brother and three sisters together through it all."

Etched in Sand: A True Story of Five Siblings Who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island

Who is Regina Calcaterra? Well, currently, she is the Chief Deputy Executive of Suffolk County. Sounds fancy?

What is interesting is Regina’s life. Raised by an abusive mother, Regina and her four siblings endured a tragic childhood facing hunger, physical, psychological abuse, and their share of foster care.

In Etched in Sand, Regina proudly recounts the early years of her life until she became a lawyer and a New York State Official.

The book is an inspiration for those living in poverty and whoever thinks that to succeed in life one must be born in the right family.

In July 2013 Regina Calcaterra was appointed by NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo as the Executive Director to the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption to probe systematic public corruption and the appearance of such corruption in state government, political campaigns and elections.
