In Riveting New Book, The 19th Child of 21 Shares Overcoming a Lifetime of Obstacles
Glendale, Arizona resident Paul Lamar Hunter beat the odds against poor kids being less likely to obtain a college education. He’s an over comer! The author is excited to announce the debut of his riveting new book No Love, No Charity: the Success of the 19th Child, a thrilling autobiographical account that describes how he made it, despite overwhelming odds.
As the 19th child of twenty-one (all born within 21 years), his troubled life traversed the perils of poverty, neglect, dysfunction, and even deaths. Hunter describes what it was like growing up in the shadows of a famous, yet detached mother whose affections were focused on the homeless shelter that she founded; and not on her children. Though the shelter was supposed to be a haven for the downtrodden, it was actually the breeding ground for dysfunction and despondency.
Despite Hunter’s misfortunes, failures, and a lifetime of obstacles, his determined spirit and unshakeable faith lifted him above the fray to become the first in his family to graduate from college. Hunter is proud of his academic accomplishments, but equally as proud of having coached a fifth grade basketball team (The Magic) in a championship game to a comeback win from nine points down. His team took the championship by one point (29-28). Having moved full-speed ahead, Hunter is living proof that neither limits nor lineage determine the quality of one’s life. He commented, “Faith, fortitude and determination enable individuals to turn their setbacks into comebacks.”
