In the gripping memoir, Why Me?, William Seger recounts the early experiences that eventually led him to living as a gay man in California, constantly searching for the things he couldn’t seem to find—peace, love, and self-acceptance.
The subsequent confusion and pain of the gay lifestyle he witnessed and experienced further convinced him that he had no power over the direction his life had taken, and yet he found himself wanting something very different than the life he had created for himself. Amid the conflicting loyalties of being a homosexual in the military service, and the difficulty of choosing family and God despite his past, Why Me? offers something William never had for many years—hope.
Throughout all the phases of William’s life, his frank account clearly illustrates the role of choice in regard to the direction his takes, the inevitability of natural consequences, and the power of God’s grace in his quest to overcome what he once thought to be an insurmountable trial from which he would never be free.
