Carolyn McGehee, a foster parent for 30 years and an adoptive mother, has completed her first book "A Victim of Society": a gripping and potent exposure of the deprivations and depravities children can be forced to endure through no fault of their own.
"Through the ages, every society has had its victims. Whether they were the ones falsely accused of a crime, or those who were ignored when crying out for help. The victims are quickly forgotten. They are an embarrassment to those around them. Rather than helping them, society goes about its days not caring for the homeless person on the street, or even how he came to be there. The masses are just glad that it is not they who are sleeping on the cold dark streets of the cities.."
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Carolyn McGehee’s poignant tale is a reminder of the imperfect nature of society and the children who too often suffer as a result.
Carolyn is the youngest of four siblings, in an endearing and loving family. In the few years of her life, Carolyn has received nothing but love from her family. But when the family experiences the unanticipated death of their father, Marvin, this tight knit and loving family learns that not everyone is as kind as they are…
With her father gone, Carolyn’s mother, Annette, welcomes another man into her home. Although his body is crippled from a childhood disease, his mind is filled with lascivious thoughts and perverted deeds. Faster than Carolyn could ever imagine, her family is stripped apart, leaving each child to deal with their own hell alone.
Facing the horrors of abusive foster parents, jealous girls, and an uncertain future, "A Victim of Society" addresses the issues a young girl must face when her life is determined by the system, and not a family.
Readers who wish to experience this visceral work can purchase "A Victim of Society" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
