Clark’s book contains all of the components of a juicy novel - deceit, manipulation, corruption, secrecy, conflict – but it is a true story.

In Sherrie Clark’s new memoir “Small Voices Silenced: The Secret Society of Sacrificed Children” (published by iUniverse), a couple find themselves in a true-life horror story, battling a powerful, secret society to prevent their two young foster girls from becoming its next sacrificial lambs.

Clark and her husband, like thousands of parents, wanted to adopt a child. By acting as foster-to-adopt parents, they had the chance to slowly bring two young girls into their lives, and themselves into the girls’ lives.

Until everything changed.

“My family’s desire to adopt a child led us down a path into an underground world that very few know exist,” Clark says. “We had fallen down a rabbit hole and into a foreign land where laws designed to protect children were twisted, leading to further victimization of these same children.”

Clark’s book contains all of the components of a juicy novel - deceit, manipulation, corruption, secrecy, conflict – but it is a true story. Her prose offers the same emotional punch of fiction, but the knowledge that it’s a real story and not something made up will draw readers all the more emotionally toward it.

Small Voices Silenced” has been recognized as an iUniverse Editor’s Choice book, which honors excellence in writing.
