About the Book

Etched in Sand

In this story of perseverance in the face of adversity, Regina Calcaterra recounts her childhood in foster care and on the streets --- and how she and her savvy crew of homeless siblings managed to survive years of homelessness, abandonment, and abuse. Regina Calcaterra's emotionally powerful memoir reveals how she endured a series of foster homes and intermittent homelessness in the shadow of the Hamptons, and how she rose above her past while fghting to keep her brother and three sisters together. Beautifully written and heartbreakingly honest, ETCHED IN SAND is an unforgettable reminder that regardless of social status, the American dream is still within reach for those who have the desire and the determination to succeed.
