Even if you have been abused there is life after any kind of abuse.
(PRWEB) December 08, 2014
Joann Jones, an experienced writer and academic, has completed her first book “Water Under the Bridge”: a gripping and potent work that is a descent into the murky depths of family abuse. This is a story of hardship, struggle, and ultimate redemption.
On how she would describe the book, its message, and the characters, author Joann Jones said, “Even if you have been abused there is life after any kind of abuse. It's facing it dead-on and whipping it in the butt before it whips your butt! The abuse I endured lead me into a life of codependency, which is a powerful addiction. Codependency can lead to depression, and like drugs and alcohol, death. It is easily hidden and there can be no symptoms on the outside.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Joann Jones’ poignant tale is an endeavor of heart and soul forged in life and branded upon the pages of this new book. With skill and style, words flow across paper and wondrously through the mind. It is an eye-opening exploration of faith and self-examination.
From an early age, Joann often wished she had been born into a different family. Witnessing the physical abuse that their mother had to endure at the hands of their father, she and her siblings lived in constant fear of his violent temper and unpredictable mood swings throughout their childhood. Their mother finally files for a divorce, only to remarry a deputy sheriff with dark intentions set on Joann. Already emotionally and psychologically scarred for life, Joann becomes involved in an unhealthy relationship with a possessive, physically abusive boyfriend. She later leaves him for the man she eventually marries, one who causes her further heartache and emotional turmoil. After a failed suicide attempt, Joann learns to put her own needs before those of others, to be “selfish” for once in her life, and to come to terms with her codependency. She begins to rebuild her faith and her relationship with God, and only then does she find a clear pathway to recovery.
