Glendora Edward's "Survival"

You must not give up on yourself, but fight for the right to survive. By believing you are strong enough, with the will to fight, tell someone. Don’t give up and don’t be afraid.

(PRWEB) July 01, 2014

In the brutally realistic novel Survival, a young girl growing up the early 1970s is being sexually abused. She believes that she has no one to turn to or anyone who would believe her. See how this shy young child finds the strength to survive and the purpose to change her life after being raped.

The author believes it’s important for children to find someone they can trust to talk over life-changing problems. “You must not give up on yourself, but fight for the right to survive. By believing you are strong enough, with the will to fight, tell someone. Don’t give up and don’t be afraid.” Survival offers powerful testimony on what it takes to overcome the odds and survive mental and sexual abuse. One act can drastically change a child’s life … for better or worse.

About the Author: Glendora Edward was born in Vieux-fort, St. Lucia, where she still lives with her family. She volunteers as a counselor for abused women and children. It was time to write this book “when I saw so many children being abused and the need for them to know that they are not alone and should fight for the right to be safe. It was a heartbreaking experience to write this book, because trying to come up with the words that I needed to do so, knowing it would wake up old wounds for some was difficult. But when I was done with it, I felt happy knowing that I accomplished what my mentor asked of me many years ago.” This is her first book. The next is "I Cried in Silence".
