New book shares Staten Island author’s story of survival

Posted: Updated:

Staten Island resident Kim K. Forstater has been up and down the roller coaster of life—from abuse, to experiencing tragedy, to divorce, even breast cancer. But no matter how difficult things seemed, she never once let the ride bring her down, and she has prevailed.

In her new memoir releasing nationwide this month, "Rings and Shackles," Forstater recalls some of the hardest points of her life. Readers will witness her inner strength as she triumphed over life's curveballs, picked up the pieces of her life, and moved on.

Forstater hopes that, by sharing her story, she can show individuals who have experienced hardships that they aren't alone.

"Just when you think everything is going to be okay, your life can fall apart in an instant," Forstater writes. "My life story is just that, about being okay and then falling apart and picking up the pieces over and over again...No matter how hard things might be, you will survive. I am a survivor, and you can be, too."
