If You Played In My Playground

‘If You Played in My Playground’ is a temporal experience.

In Elizabeth’s debut novel her unique new voice tells the story of a Portuguese woman navigating the ghetto of Toronto. She trudges through ill-gotten neighborhoods with the knowledge that they are her own and carries a strong will through welfare, drug trafficking, a lost lover, and all forms of physical and sexual abuse. She becomes as hardened as the ones who wronged her; unable to clean the wounds she bore at such a tender age. She is unable to understand why the world has taken everything away from her including the one person who loved her unconditionally: Her Avo (grandmother). Slowly, she finds love incrementally through the birth and rearing of her son Keeno and is saved by God in the eyes of the church.

Elizabeth was like a divine messenger to a group of us women who had it all but were still missing that something.  In a short time and with a lot of clarity and heart, Elizabeth brought us down to a landing spot and made every women in the room realize their potential and abilities to achieve their life goals.

Elizabeth Correia is the real deal. Her genuine passion and motivation as a writer is clear. When she speaks and writes from a place of wisdom and experience. She has risen from unimaginable circumstances. She truly wants to share this empowerment, inspiration and faith with as many young girls and women as possible. Her memoir and everything about her reminds me of Jenny from the Block meets Oprah.

Elizabeth's story is compelling and heartbreaking! But, more importantly, the role she plays today is an uplifting one for all who come in contact with her. We have watched her work first-hand. She engages people, both young and old, and she uses her experiences to provide a path for all of them to follow toward a better life.
