A true-life, sometimes gritty yet ultimately triumphant story, Until the Brighter Tomorrow is told straight from Valerie Rainford's heart. The daughter of southern sharecroppers, she takes the reader through her challenging young life in the projects, where her mother's steadfast work ethic and undying support motivates Valerie to choose a different path than that of her high school friends. After the devastating deaths of both her brother and mother, Valerie-determined to beat the odds-embraces her generational current of strength and goes on to graduate from Fordham University, accomplish impressive career firsts, and rise to her present position as a successful corporate executive. With the pulse of a finely written novel, this inspiring memoir radiates with the author's belief that anything is possible if one has enough faith, tenacity, and trust in oneself.
