A woman struggle to triumph over years of abuse in this candid book.

Releasing the Pain, a memoir of one woman's struggle to triumph over years of abuse, was recently published by Memphis author Sharon V. Olden.

Some things in life may seem almost impossible to forgive. Some obstacles, especially child abuse, may seem too great to ever overcome. Olden takes her readers on a journey of profound love that triumphs over years of physical and emotional suffering. Her grandmother believed love could conquer all pain, wishing to offer her a better life if Sharon could be granted to her protective custody. Will she persevere, and will love be enough to release all the hurt? Let Sharon show you how her journey progressed, and hear the advice she has for those struggling with similar problems.

Olden is a survivor of child abuse who felt prompted by God to use her story to inspire and encourage others. For years she has been involved in volunteering for her community with organizations such as the Red Cross and Youth Villages. She especially has an interest in youth empowerment programs and outreach programs for abuse victims since she knows what a difference a caring heart can make. Sharon's words of advice for others struggling with forgiveness are, "Let go and let God do it." She is a native of Tennessee, which is still her home today.

Releasing the Pain is a 32-page paperback with a retail price of $8.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-0032-6. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more information or to request a review copy, please visit our virtual press room at or our online bookstore at
