In this riveting book, Chelley Roy tells the story of her mother’s secret identity as the underworld crime boss "Lady D." Readers will follow Lady D from her early years as a suburban teenager through her death at the hands of an organized crime syndicate. Unlike Lady D, we have the privilege of seeing the outcome as her daughter takes her mother's murder investigation into her own hands and becomes involved in one of the biggest trials of the century.The author's life story may be extraordinary, but many will see themselves in her account of her mother’s life as a crime boss, her untimely death, and her family's troubled relationships. We see the thinness of the line between mundane suburban life and the criminal underworld in the struggles of Lady D's unwed teenage daughter and the tactics employed by her family to survive in the time when D.C. was known as the nation's Murder Capitol at the height of the drug epidemic. Today, Chelley Roy - Lady D's Daughter - is an entrepreneur, the CEO and founder of the lifestyle coaching brand Get Tea Waisted, and a proud wife, mother, and grandmother. She seeks to provide her family with the safety and security she didn't always have growing up, and to share her story with others who may feel alone in their struggles.
Powerful and Inspiring. Such a wonderfully depicted self story from someone who truly has so much love for the person they are writing about and it shows. Chelley allows us to become just as invested in Lady D. We learn about her past and quite a bit of eye opening and shocking things. Then we get to see Chelley's ups and downs through life. She has succeeded and it's inspirational and gives people hope. Well written, honest, and fascinating in the best ways.
