Where did her Father get his choice of a name? Everyone just assumed it was because he loved operas and named her after the Spanish gypsy in “Carmen.” As she matured into a stunningly beautiful young girl with an olive complexion, dark hair and dark eyes, she resembled more of the Hispanic race than her Caucasian ancestry. Her lack of identity in early childhood combined with the rejection and abuse from her family of origin, led Carmyn to believe that the “y” in her name was the beginning of her feeling like a misplaced “why” in life. After a failed suicide attempt at age thirteen, Carmyn sought to find the answers to the untold many "whys" in her life. A dramatic conclusion weaves the past with the present and shines with the compelling truth and hope that only God can bring light out of darkness. Her redemption is found veiled in the symbolism of roses, the love of an unforgettable caretaker named Rosetta, and a divine revelation from God that ultimately transforms her tragedies into triumphs.
