Things Fall Apart

book_cover_TFAAfter a childhood that can be described as nothing less than completely blessed, Hilary Neiman pursued a well-rounded and advanced education with one dream in mind: to one day build a successful adoption and surrogacy law practice. And she did. But one morning, Hilary arrived at work and was met by three sets of polished shoes belonging to FBI agents. The men informed her that she was to be the subject of a federal investigation. Hilary had a loving family, wonderful friends, a life filled with service to others and years of total dedication to, and even obsession with, building her practice. This, of course, did not matter to the agents, who had a job to do.

Now, after pleading guilty to wire fraud and serving time in prison, Hilary has come to understand what she could have done differently — before, during and after the breathtaking roller coaster of events that started the day an FBI agent told her, “It’s your come to Jesus day.”

Hilary’s story not only tells of a fall from grace and a hope for redemption. It also serves as a cautionary tale for everyone who believes that as long as you work hard, believe in service, complete a formal education and stay focused and dedicated, you are immune from mistakes with life altering consequences. This book is a must read.
