 Book Description:

“What if that someone was you?” Shannon had been so quick to blame others for her anger. She knew she was drowning in darkness and pain; being born with a learning disability made her feel defeated by life. She tried drinking heavily in order to quiet the demons. After being kicked out of college, Shannon took a leap of faith and started working in a nursing home. That’s when her angels appeared and the miracle began. The insight and wisdom she gained from those elderly new friends led her on an inspiring journey of discovery and self-acceptance. Each of us has our own path. Some of us just need angels to help us find it. This is her story.

Finding my Sunshine is about Shannon Leith McGuire life. About the difficult issues she has had to face pretty much as long as she remembers. She has a learning disability, which is devastating trying to learn with other people your age that never have problems, and that’s enough to throw anyone down. This lead to alcohol, being kicked out of school and finding her own way. It was working in a nursing home that brought Sunshine to her life. Those sweet older people were full of wisdom and love and showed Shannon what she has needed and is missing. Shannon not only found her SUNSHINE in the nursing Home she found a love of the residents there. She was able to find taking care of these lovely people was healing to her life. I love that Shannon found healing in such a place. We sometimes forget the wisdom of older people.                                                Shannon’s story is unique and I love the way she is so straightforward open and honest in what she has written in her book. A lot of people would be too ashamed, but if this book can help one person it would be worth it. This book can be so much help for so many people. This one is truly a Five Stars for me. Sometimes it is difficult rating a book when reading a book so different from your normal reads but this book wasn’t a problem at all. Knowing how much Finding my Sunshine will be such a help to others gave me my rating. I strongly encourage you to check out this one.

Meet the Author:


Shannon was raised in a small town in Eastern Montana, where you leave your car keys in the ignition and your front door unlocked all the time. The kind of place where sunsets and sunrises can be seen for miles on the horizon. Where the spring crickets and frogs resting in the irrigation ditches helped transition the days into a calm resting night. Where the winters can get so cold, air can freeze. It was only after she was academically suspended by the college she was attending, that she became a Certified Nurses Aide (CNA). She did her training in Billings, Montana and it was there she learned how to take care of others and bonded with the geriatric population. For over five years, Shannon worked in the same nursing home where she received her training. The work was hard, but it grounded her and helped her find balance in what had become a deeply unbalanced life. It was not until she was a CNA, at one of the hospitals that she had a dream-three nights in a row-that she was going to become a nurse. She currently resides in Tampa, Florida, where you may hear her laughing with her husband of over 10 years,  scuba diving in the ocean, taking walks with their rescued pit-bull dog- Darby, or dancing together to life’s music.
