About the Author

Francesca Miracola is an Italian American from Queens, NY, currently living on Long Island, but in her mind she's a free-spirited wanderer. She wants to travel the world, but she's afraid to fly, although a glass of wine gets her through most flights. Francesca's mostly an introvert who greatly prefers deep, meaningful conversations to surface small talk. She keeps her circle small, and she's still debating if that's a good or bad thing. She's a breast cancer survivor, but she rarely defines herself as one--probably because she feels like she's been surviving something most of her life. She's funny; at least, she makes herself laugh. Francesca graduated cum laude from New York University and worked in financial services for twenty-five years, even though she wanted to be a therapist. That's probably because she needed a therapist. Francesca finally wound up on her true path as a student and teacher of A Course in Miracles, author, life coach, and founder of Protagonist Within LLC. Francesca is a wife, a best friend, and above all, a mother. She lives on Long Island, NY.


"The author's clear, straightforward prose effectively captures her complex psychological state . . . Miracola does a particularly good job of contextualizing the relationship within a larger culture of neglect and misogyny. The end result is as engaging as it is disturbing. A thoughtful and affecting memoir of marriage and divorce."

--Kirkus Reviews

"Miracola, a talented writer, has the ability to pull readers into her story from the first page, with perfect pacing and evocative, inviting prose. . . . Resilience and hope distinguish this wrenching memoir of ending an abusive marriage."


"I Got It from Here is an inspiring memoir about overcoming an upbringing in a dysfunctional family, social conditioning, corruption, and a sociopathic ex-husband to claw one's way to happiness."

--Foreword Reviews
