Beautiful Lie

a memoir

Evening Ransom looked like she had it all: a ten-year marriage, two healthy little boys, a thriving business, a beautiful home and a circle of family and friends. It looked exactly as she imagined it would when she turned her back on a chance of a lifetime in Los Angeles and headed back home to her family, where love was supposed to be guaranteed.

In Beautiful Lie Evening Ransom reconstructs the painful reality of her own life in the wake of the tragic death of her son, Noah.  Her search for answers takes her back to the day that she died fifteen years earlier.


How could she make sense of a miraculous survival only to then watch the people she loved and desperately needed more than ever as they dismantled her life, betrayed and abandoned her one by one, erasing her from her own life. Tt

    Its a chilling story of betrayal and abuse by people no one knew were capable of it, their Evening least of all.    These were relationships of inevitable harm.  Ultimately, it was their own family and the lack of love that made life so unbearable that it literally broke Evening's heart.  

   The battle began when she made the choice to live.  Over the course of fifteen years she lost everything that defined he except for her sons.  For them she managed to rebuild shea whole new life from the ashes.  Her sons were traumatized, and struggling and Evening knew that as soon asas she could get them free of their abusers the healing could begin, but sadly before she got her sons to safety her eldest son died from an accidental drug overdose. Somehow, she managed to reinvent herself yet again.  This time as a  creative activist, writer, teacher and artist, all of it supported and encouraged by her son whose spirit never left her.  She found the strength to go on and the Universe rose up to meet her.  She imagined being at the hub of an unconditionally loving family, that her sons would have an impact on the world, and that she would become the best version of herself that she could be, and she saw that she could still do all of these things she just had to keep going, putting one foot in front of the other, doing the next right thing.                    


"Narrated with hard won wisdom, remarkable compassion, justified anger, and unwavering optimism this groundbreaking memoir is as daring and provocative as its creator. With scorching honesty and penetrating insight Evening Ransom uses her personal tragedy to start the essential conversation of our time."

3 Good Things

A Gratitude Journal

Keeping a gratitude journal is an important part of all of my programs because I believe that it is a habit worth cultivating.  It has been one of the most effective tools in my life, it costs nothing, it organizes your priorities, it gets you in the habit of looking for the positive, and simply there is just no downside.  The other interesting thing about gratitude is that when you feel least grateful is precisely when it can be your saving grace because it is impossible to be both grateful and afraid at the same time.  At the low point in my life I clung to gratitude My intention is to design a journal that coordinates with my programs and includes encouraging words and writing prompts.  I hope to have the journal available soon.
