      Product Description

      High street book shops are lined with topselling stories about abused lives. The news is full of stories of the abused and their abusers. There is an incredible demand for information, but there is so little hope for many looking for full healing from the consequences of abuse. This book is different to many others. It is a powerful story that has emerged from a background of extreme abuse and journals her road to healing. Sarah Shaw looked in control of her life, had a successful career as a manager in retail business but eventually came to a point where she snapped and was put on a lifetime's incapacity benefit. The consultant psychiatrist assigned to her admitted he had come to the end of how he could help without using electric shock treatment. Nobody knew she had been emotionally deprived and severely abused up to the age of 18. Yet, this is not a story detailing the horrors of Sarah's abuse. It is a story of a profound journey, facing and unlocking the pain and bringing extraordinary healing through Jesus Christ.

      This is an inspiring story of recovery. Not a sudden recovery but a long journey taking over ten years; while in the background is her husband , ‘who selflessly supported and encouraged her throughout this journey’.
      Mental and physical abuse over the whole period of her first eighteen years had been suppressed from her memory until in her mid-thirties this suppression was affecting Sarah so badly that she was admitted into a psychiatric hospital. Her psychiatrist, who has written the foreword to this book, accepted the suggestion that Sara should go to Ellel Grange to attend a ten-day healing retreat. This was the real start of the healing journey, which Sarah describes in harrowing detail, as she struggled through the surfacing memories of those early years. Memories which had to be accepted into her adult life to enable her to live as God intended.
      It is not the details of the abuse that this book is about, it is the story of the counselling and support that brought her fully into life, to the point that she is now able to counsel and help others and also to work at a part time job. An amazing book about the healing power of our God.
