Come say hello so I can answer your questions about my newly released book titled Reflections of Mamie-A Story of Survival and the other Authors can discuss their books with you as well.
Reflections of Mamie-A Story of Survival is a sad and joyous personal account of growing up under the worst kind of adversity. It is a story of survival during times of extreme suffering and deprivation that will leave you feeling Mamie’s anguish.
The character Mamie, will take you on a wild ride as she makes endless attempts to escape the horrors and abuse in her life. Some passages will make you cry while others may actually cause you to laugh hysterically, especially at the absurdities of my youthful plans for escape.
The story begins in the early 1950′s suburbs of Houston, Texas. Mamie is a young child of four who was unwanted, afraid, abused and with nowhere to turn, learned that she had to stand alone. Her only friends were her older brother, an abused child himself, and her nanny, who begged their mother to stop beating them. The father, though he loved his children, remained passive to the end. A victim himself, the only protection he offered was a warning to stay out of their mother’s reach.
This story shares Mamie’s heroic battle to keep her dreams alive and hold on to her spirit. How she finds her way out of fifty-four years of abuse is yours to discover in her fascinating memoirs.
In my book, you will learn where and how to find help should you find yourself in these same circumstances. Most importantly, you will learn how to stop the insane cycle that has become your life. I will even show how the simplest denial of a teddy bear as a small child returned to haunt me as an adult.
If you are looking to connect with Mamie because of your own neglect or
abuse, this book is for you. If looking for a release or permission to sob away
those sorrows, this is the book that will allow those tears to flow. But the
message is very clear…You must NEVER EVER give up!
Thank you for visiting once again. This was a special post to introduce you to my newest journey in social media and it seems like one of the most useful sites for both readers and authors ro come together.
