On The Table Read Magazine, “the best book magazine in the UK“, moving memoir, God Gave A Glasgow Girl Nine Lives by Eunice Ivy Graham, shares her fearless spirit after overcoming more challenges than one person deserves in a lifetime.
When life gets tough you can either be a victim or a fighter, and very early on in life, Eunice Ivy Graham opted to be a fighter.
In her new autobiography, God Gave a Glasgow Girl Nine Lives, Eunice recounts a lifetime of adversity, challenges and triumphs, broken down into nine compelling (and often distressing) chapters. It is her resilience, devotion to her faith, and the belief that what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger that jumps from each and every page. From her early years overcoming poverty, Eunice takes you on an emotional roller coaster of near-death experiences that would break a lesser soul.
Finding her calling first with the Franciscan Sisters, then breaking barriers as Glasgow’s first female turnkey, Eunice constantly redefined what was possible for her, never letting adversity hold her back. Marriage and motherhood offered their own challenges but also presented a new realm of triumphs as Eunice shifted gears into a vital role at the East Kilbride District Court.
Through nine harrowing episodes, including surviving terrorist attacks and life-threatening illnesses, she believes divine intervention gave her the strength to not only survive but thrive. Her story is a shining example of the extraordinary lives ordinary people can lead when they harness the power of hope and determination.
A gem of read that will resonate with many, the purpose of publishing this autobiography of a Glaswegian warrior is not to wallow in the innumerable adversities that have blighted her life, but to inspire and support those who feel they simply cannot carry on.
Eunice Ivy Graham
Eunice Ivy Graham was born and bred in Glasgow under impoverished circumstances.
My mother had the foresight to ensure that I was well educated. She definitely believed in “tough love” but that has made me the determined person that I am.
I am widowed, and I have lived in East Kilbride (about 9 miles outside Glasgow) for 42 years. I love people of any age and feel that I can meet them where they are at. I am currently retired, but I enjoy swimming, reading, wobbling on ice skates and treating others as the way I would like to be treated myself. We are all equals after all.
