Curtain Call

a memoir

Nonfiction, Memoir

I thought I was having a breakdown.

It turns out, it was a breakthrough. 

In 2014, I wanted out of my story. I didn’t want to be on this earth anymore. Bombarded by uninvited memories of childhood trauma, I questioned why God would allow so many horrible things to happen to me.

When God interrupted my pleas for help with a simple question—“Will you trust Me with your story?”—I agreed to step out of my stage-perfect Christian life and into the journey toward healing and finally seeing Him as a good, loving God.


Lyneta Smith reaches into her heart, baring her story with brisk honesty and unflinching candor. Beautiful writing, exquisite storytelling.
