Description

A true story of a child’s life after her mother’s murder, the choices born of suffering, and the journey of recovery.

When Connie Greshner was eight years old, her father murdered her mother. After her family was torn apart, she was sent to a Catholic boarding school in Kansas by her aunt.

Connie’s identity was formed in this strange world, shame manifesting as rebellion, until she returned to Canada and her brother’s care. Depression, addiction, and promiscuity spiraled as she tried to cope and find help. Connie’s forays into the mental health system were not helpful, and, after several suicide attempts, she decided to pursue a career in psychology as a mental health therapist so that she could help others.

Connie breaks the silence and shame of intergenerational violence with honesty and humour. Borderline Shine is the unflinching story of the life of a survivor of domestic violence and murder.
