Tragically Beautiful (Paperback) (Kuko Alamala)
about this item
From Kuko Alamala comes the powerful account of a lifetime of emotional and spiritual transformation. It is a story of generations that starts before the author, a successful IT professional and musician, is born, with the meeting and marriage of his parents, a marriage that turns out to be troubled in more ways than one. This leads to the introduction of an abusive stepfather into Kuko Alamala’s life. The resulting events of his childhood will have a lifelong impact on the author. Follow Kuko Alamala through incredible highs and devastating lows as his family grows, starting with the birth of his first child at the age of 14. It is not easy becoming a parent at such a young age, and Kuko Alamala struggles to find his footing within his relationships with his children’s mothers. He faces infidelity and the challenges of making a life with someone when you are both still changing and growing. Throughout, Kuko Alamala also wrestles with depression and multiple suicide attempts as his life appears to spiral out of control at several turns. This is ultimately, however, an uplifting story of triumph and the power of God’s grace to transform a person and his life. The search for spiritual guidance resonates with many who are in the midst of their own journeys, and provides hope for a future full of light and love.
