Very few women are able to get to the place where they can even voice
WOODBRIDGE, Va. (PRWEB) February 01, 2018
Within the pages of Karen R. Hobbs’s new book, Unlocking My Soul to Hope Again, ($12.49, paperback, 9781498491518; $5.99, e-book, 9781498491525) readers will find the author’s remarkable story of victory over her childhood sexual abuse. Tormented for over five years by a Bible teacher in her Christian school, Hobbs kept her painful secret. However, through her internal struggle she found God’s amazing love, which gave her the courage to bring her abuser to justice decades later.
“Very few women are able to get to the place where they can even voice that they are victims of sexual abuse, much less successfully prosecute their abuser thirty years later,” states the author. “My book speaks of the abuse that occurred in a Protestant organization and the stigma and legalism that continues to impede victims of these institutions from coming forward and telling their stories for fear of condemnation and shaming. This is a story where the victim fights against the traditions of the institution and God is glorified. My hope is that this book provides both survivors and those who support and work with them an understanding of the inner complexities that plague victims of sexual trauma everyday.”
Karen R. Hobbs has over twenty years experience working in the trauma field and has spent the last thirteen years working as a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice. She is also a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, and this autobiography of her journey towards healing is her debut book.
