LIGHTNING RELEASES 04/16/14 — Createspace is proud to announce a story of inspiration and recovery from Jenny Hayworth, Inside/Outside: One Woman’s Recovery from Abuse and a Religious Cult available everywhere immediately.
Inside/Outside is a must read compelling true-life account of a struggle from the bondage of a religious cult known as Jehovah’s Witnesses for over 30 years, sexual abuse and her ultimate healing and recovery.
Jenny told no one due to fear of God and feeling like she was a participant and not a victim even though she was only 11 years old when the abuse started.
Although cautioned to keep quiet about the abuse, Jenny found the courage to confront her abusers after her eldest two children were abused by a member of the church.
She would eventually leave the church and begin a six-year period of healing that is inspirational and although it led to her losing all she had ever known, she gained more than she could have imagined.
Clarion Review – “What keeps the pages of Hayworth’s life story turning is her honesty, tenacity, and sheer will to survive through an astounding number of setbacks. Inside/Outside proves the resilience of the human spirit and shows that the cycle of abuse can indeed be broken”
Kirkus Review – “A harrowing memoir of one woman’s struggle to cope with sexual abuse and depression while living in – and eventually leaving – the Jehovah’s Witnesses”
Readers Favorite 5 Star Review – “The book is an inspiring story for those who are going through traumatic times…”
