Reading about others’ inspirational journeys can help us find the courage to overcome our own challenges.

Take Patricia Walsh Chadwick, author of the amazing new memoir, “Little Sister,” which chronicles her time in the 1950s with a strange religious cult. From the time she was an infant, she lived with 39 other children who were all given new names, instructed that the church leaders were to be called Daddy and Mamma, and prevented from watching movies, listening to music, or socializing. On top of all this, the threat of physical abuse was constant.

Since escaping, Patricia has graduated summa cum laude from Boston University with a B.A. in Economics. She is a Chartered Financial Analyst, and founder and president of Ravengate Partners LLC, a consulting firm that provides businesses and not-for-profit institutions with advice and education about the financial markets and the global economy. She has had a thirty-year career in the investment business, and is a Global Partner at Invesco.
