You may wonder why you never heard about my story before. Why it was not covered in the news. That’s not because I didn’t tell anyone when I was growing up. My story as you will see is long overdue. I tried many times to get someone’s attention, but no one cared enough to understand the signs of my long abuse
Manchester, NH (Vocus) October 5, 2010
Xlibris, a print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of The Lilac Room. In this book, author Linda French boldly steps out of the dark to bring inspiration to readers with her true story of abuse, struggle, acceptance, and salvation.
The Lilac Room is a story about crimes against children, which include rape, abuse, drugs, mind control, violence, stealing, lies, running from the law, homelessness, death, and suicide. These were the bitter realities that the author went through while growing up. Being raped for so many years and having experienced enough horror for her young mind were hard enough. But not having anyone to tell it to was even harder. With the release of this book, French bravely unveils every provoking detail of her story in the hope of raising awareness to society. Abuse is happening everyday, but not every event of it is documented and not every victim is given justice.

I tried many times to get someone’s attention, but no one cared enough to understand the signs of my long abuse,” shares the author.
A chronicling of a traumatic life as seen through a young girl’s point of view, The Lilac Room tells of the dark spiral pit that a child can live in day after day. It is a moving true story of the hope seen amid the never-ending darkness of the author’s life. For more information on this book, log on to Xlibris.com.
