In this week's Spotlight we feature "Finding Peace," After a life of Sexual, Mental and Physical Abuse by Tena Williams.
Finding Peace after a life of sexual, mental, and physical abuse reflects on all the abusive events that author Tena Williams experienced throughout her childhood in Jamaica. At age 4 she had her first sexual experience and by her 16 sixteenth birthday, her older brother would routinely violate her. The abuse continued through adulthood, the number of abusers increased. Tena expresses all the risky behaviors she engaged in during her childhood and teen years. She speaks on how the abusers impacted her growth and self-esteem.
She discusses the process that helped her to heal from her scars and to overcome the horrors she faced throughout her life. This book is therapy for Author Tena Williams, who hopes that her testimony will help all victims of abuse heal from their difficult struggle, and to know that there is healing to help them grasp life to the fullest. This book is also for individuals who have never experienced abuse, as it will help them understand the struggles of victims.
