New book shares a painful period in the author’s life and how she overcame it

She was sexually maltreated by her stepfather – a respected member of a religious congregation. Not able to stand it much longer, she ran away from home. Ironically, she felt her battle for freedom was not yet over. Now, author L.D. Giles, Msc. M., breaks the long-kept silence and steps out into the light as she pens Fear Bruised My Ear: But God Created A Poised Lady, made available through Xlibris.

Leneia, as she was called, was abused as a young child. Her stepfather’s delivery was sudden and not meant to be seen by others. Running from her stepfather’s clandestine agenda, moralistic banishment by Jehovah’s Witnesses, and escaping her mother’s blind religious views have shadowed her life experiences. Much of the time, she awoke from the past struggling in her present life. These are the times she began to write. In Fear Bruised My Ear: But God Created A Poised Lady, Giles writes about past secrets, turning personal struggles into healing.

Eye-opening, Fear Bruised My Ear: But God Created A Poised Lady shares the author’s important message to readers: not to let fear rule one’s life. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
