Frieda Annette Brown grew up in the inner city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She and her five brothers were the illegitimate offspring of Hetty Brown, a wayward and promiscuous single parent with a lustful, reckless spirit and a heartless neglect for the welfare of her children. Hetty's willful abandonment left her children susceptible to the harsh and unforgiving elements and predators of their urban streets. Frieda (Hetty's only daughter) was seven when her nightmares began. Repeated sexual assaults and Hetty's unwillingness to care, forced Frieda to bear the burdens of numerous aggressors. As a lonely battle for survival began, Frieda's climb to overcome the trials and tribulations that plagued her life was unimaginable. As Frieda fought to maintain faith that a better life was possible, the poisonous influences of a disheartening environment seemed non-survivable. Climbing the Broken Stairs is a journey of determination, and an inspiring and personal testament to the mercy, power, and glory of God.
