Lauretta L Hall Thrist, a retired grandmother of 9, has completed her new book “Back to the Beginning: My Journey of Faith, Pain, and Blessings”: a brave and enlightening tale of self-discovery and faith throughout the challenges and tribulations life hands you.

“When I was very young I developed a strong relationship with God. Throughout my life my faith was challenged by a variety of life's encounters and changes.” Lauretta explained when asked what her desire was to write this book.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Lauretta L. Hall Thrist’s enriching tale follows her life and faith from her childhood, to life changes that served her, into her abusive first marriage.

Lauretta learned at a very young age how to get her way regardless of the circumstances. This attitude served her well until her first marriage, and suddenly instead of being "in charge" she was enslaved. Personal desires no longer mattered and she became the property of a very charismatic, evil man.

Her new husband, Butch, showered Lauretta with compliments, took her places she never knew existed and made her the envy of all of her friends. But also like the devil, once he has you, he shows you his true colors. It was only two months after she married him that the real "Butch" appeared and Lauretta realized the hell on Earth that was now her life. Unlike the hell that the pastor preaches of, this personal hell had days both good and bad, and there were just enough good days to give hope that things might change.

Readers who wish to experience this touching work can purchase “Back to the Beginning: My Journey of Faith, Pain, and Blessings” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
