Title: Art of Survival Part 2 of 2
Series: A Stern Family Saga
Author: Monique Orgeron
Genre: Contemporary Romance Suspense
I’ve done my penance and paid a heavy price for my choices.
It was never for selfish reasons that I became the person I am today.
No, I can be called many things but selfish will never be one of them.
It was always for them. My children.
No regrets and no do-overs.
The grim reaper is knocking on my door. It’s my time.
I was fine with it. I knew this day would eventually come and I was ready.
I was tired of living a life of battles in order to survive.
Then I was forced to see how overwhelmingly beautiful life is and how tragically short my days could be.
With limited time, I have to find a way to finish my job and get my sons ready for what is in store for them.
They want me to fight and I will but in return, they too must fight.
Am I ready for the battle of my life?
Will they be ready?
Written by Monique Orgeron’s eldest, most beautiful, and intelligent daughter. (My sister is going to hate this part.)
My mom happens to be the most caring, loving, and stubborn person I know, well anyone knows. She gives 100% percent of herself to everyone and has given up so much of herself for my sister and I. For twenty-one years she has poured her heart and soul into making sure we know that we are loved and that we can do anything we put our minds too, but it was about time she figured that out about herself.
Up until this year I hadn’t seen my mom do anything for only her, but this book has allowed her to travel the world through the pages of a book, make new friends, and feel the joy of doing something exciting.
There is a new light behind her eyes and it is just making me feel more joy than she can ever imagine. While she might be annoying most of the time, I am so thrilled that she is finally allowing herself to grow as a person and not spend all of her energy on her family.
It has been a long journey of self-discovery for my mom; she has gone from domestic supermom to domestic goddess throughout the process of writing.
We are so very excited and proud of you! I love you as big as the world.
-Bria and Tony
I knew Catherine’s story would be a tough one to read….
This is book 5 of the Stern Family Saga Series. In order to fully understand this book, please read the first 4 books before diving into this one.
16 year old Katie had no idea she left one Devil and traded in for a younger, wealthier Devil. Hungry, Homeless and out of money when the man in the suit was noticed, how could you not feel a pull towards him.
While we’ve gotten a glimpse inside what Catherine lived through in the previous books. Art of Survival Part One is finally giving us what it took to make Catherine, the matriarch of the Stern Family. The woman who fought with all her might for her sons. Her life was lived in the way it was to protect her children.
She was no longer the weakling that was brought into the Stern mansion at the age of 16. She had blossomed into a woman that was planning her future from the very first night.
Good times in the mansion? Absolutely.
Bad times in the mansion? More than you can count.
But from the Good times and the Bad times came the biggest joy of all. Her boys. Now adults with wives and children, Catherine has fought the fight long enough. Hidden her secret long enough. Now though its all coming to a head and the family is suffering because of it.
This is the first book of 2 traveling through Catherine’s history. What will happen in part 2? Will the boys who are men now and have been primed since they were born to take over the family business be ready? Or will the vultures fly in to take apart the family piece by piece???
