A refreshing memoir that challenges readers to make the most of life's opportunities.

In 1976, Mary Anne Chambers had recently moved to Canada when a colleague at Scotiabank told her not to be surprised if she didn’t get very far. As a Black woman from Jamaica, a married mother, and a Roman Catholic, the overlapping characteristics of Chambers' identity were expected to hinder her life experiences. Yet, Mary Anne Chambers went on to hold senior roles in both business and politics.

In her riveting memoir, Mary Anne Chambers shares lessons from the moments that defined her values and her respect for others. From the Heart encourages us to be true to ourselves, curious and willing to embrace the lessons of everyday life and the people we encounter along the way.
