At age 21 Stacey Patton stood across the street looking at the nightmarish house where she spent most of her childhood. All the pain and fear from her early life came rushing back filling her with controllable rage and hate. As Stacey stood there looking in the void that surrounded her life, she reached into her jacket pocket and pulled out a gun.

After her years of abuse at the hand of her ‘Master’ Myrtle, Stacey runs away from home with only freedom on her mind, and choose to become a warden of the state, living in a group home. As a way to escape her cruel life Stacey choose to concentrate on her school work, earning a scholarship to a private prep school, there she excelled in both academics and athletics. Stacey Patton wins her fight, becoming the best that she could be despite all the happenings in her life.

That Mean Old Yesterday is a shocking but up lifting autobiography by award-winning journalist Stacey Patton. She shares the horrific physical and sexual abuse she endured at the hands of her god fearing adopted mother Myrtle, as well as her escape from the horror of her life. Stacey compares her life with Myrtle and her husband George to slavery as she replays the horrifying pictures of her past on to the papers of her book.
