We Never Asked for Wings

by Vanessa Diffenbaugh

We Never Asked for Wings Synopsis

Everyone makes mistakes... Letty was going to go places. She was going to be someone. Then she got pregnant, and her plans changed. Now she's a single parent with two children she's convinced she can't care for, a dead-end job she's struggling to keep, a home in a half forgotten part of town, and no prospect of anything changing any time soon. Determined to give her children a better future, she takes a decision that may change all their lives. But perhaps she's not quite done making mistakes. And her son, Alex, may be about to make one of his own - because, sometimes, the biggest mistakes we make are when we're prepared to risk everything for those we love.
