Additional Information

Description: »Author C.M. Morgan recounts the forty-year journey of recovering from childhood clergy sexual abuse. From traveling to another state and having a face-to-face conversation with her perpetrator, to enduring five long years of litigation against the church, C.M. spiraled through the tears, fears, and struggles shared by almost all survivors of sexual abuse. Feeling spiritually lost and emotionally worn out, C.M. found her soul and her long-lost self during her six-month hiatus traveling throughout Australia. Finding and embracing forgiveness proved, once again, that our history is not our destiny. Through the power of love and guidance from friends and complete strangers, she celebrates her victories, while realizing the power of confronting the demons and trusting oneself.« [Source: Balboa Press]
