In this gripping, award-winning memoir, Danuta (Soderman) Pfeiffer, known to millions as the former co-host of The 700 Club with Pat Robertson, explains her sudden disappearance from the evangelical world and explores her chaotic past living under her father’s imposing shadow.
This is a story of navigating identities through a remarkable life. Danuta Pfeiffer was an unwed teenage mother escaping to the tundra of Alaska; a journalist who inadvertently became a television evangelist with a ringside seat to a presidential campaign; a wife caught in a web of deceit and substance abuse.
Through it all, she clings to her father’s legacy, sustained by his tales of fortitude and endurance when faced with the horrors of war.
Finally, living happily as a winemaker in Oregon, she finds she must once more reinvent herself, when during a sojourn to the Carpathian Mountains of Poland she uncovers long-buried family secrets.
Chiseled is the story of one woman brave enough to chip away at a life of lies and finally arrive at a shining core of truth.
