Finding and embracing forgiveness proved that our history is not our destiny.

Minneapolis (PRWEB) April 29, 2014

Far too often in today’s world, we hear stories of child sexual abuse perpetrated by those we’re supposed to trust the most – teachers, relatives, even members of the clergy. Many of these stories focus on the perpetrator and the institution to which they belong. But what about the other side of the story? What about the voice of the victim?

Inspired by true events over a forty-year period, “Altar(ed) Girl”, by author C.M. Morgan, provides that perspective. “Altar(ed) Girl” recounts a horrifying experience of clergy child sexual abuse and shares the profound wisdom Morgan learned along the journey to forgiveness.

“Finding and embracing forgiveness proved that our history is not our destiny,” said Morgan, who found her “long-lost self” while traveling and went on to successfully confront her abuser face-to-face. “With a lot of love and guidance from friends and complete strangers, I came to realize the power of confronting the demons and trusting myself.”

Morgan’s experience is much too common in our society today, yet is often never shared for a wide variety of reasons – until now. All readers will be inspired by the author’s journey to spiritual renewal, self-reclamation and healing.
