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.
