“The Guys Upstairs – how I found my power and voice”

Release date: 30th November 2015


There is nothing worse than being a child in a home where violence and hatred are rife and no-one will listen. It’s all the more remarkable then that Amanda Hart survived such harrowing beginnings to arrive at a point in life where she could write The Guys Upstairs.

This book charts the life of Amanda Hart from childhood to middle age, a life which saw her stumble from one unbearable relationship to another as she strived to maintain custody of her children and make sense of a world where trust was in short supply.

To get through she puts her faith in ‘The Guys Upstairs’, angels who at times can be frustrating in their messages but who in the end always deliver. The Guys Upstairs is an absorbing book on surviving relationships and finding your power and voice to live your destiny.

Amanda’s book is endorsed by key experts who are supporting her campaign to raise awareness. 50p of every book sold throughout December 2015 will be donated to Children in Need.
