Granville, OH (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
Encouraged by a friend to share her own story and inspired by Stacey Patton, author of “That Mean Old Yesterday,” C.C. Rayne publishes her own memoir, “Letting Go: A Memoir” (published by AuthorHouse). Rayne hopes that by sharing her own experience of abuse, cultish religion and unhealthy relationships, she may be able to help other people who are struggling from similar traumatic experiences.
The subject of the book is a true description of a woman’s journey of abuse and transitions, and follows Rayne, a religious cult, Rayne’s mother, Claudia, and her brother, William. It is about a child’s journey of abuse then years later leaving a cultish religion. She changed her outward appearance but the condemning mannerisms of the cult were still present. Only after a family tragedy did she find the help she needed to address her demons and find the forgiveness and peace she had been searching for.
While many survivors of sexual abuse have revealed their stories, only a few people have spoken openly about the truth in religious cults. Rayne’s story is meant to give voice to victims of controlling cultish religions, empowering readers to boldly address their own issues and find hope and courage to seek help. Rayne believes that secrets can cripple, letting go and finding one’s own voice is freeing.
Real, evocative and empowering, “Letting Go” is a book about emancipating the self from traumatic pasts. Readers will discover in Rayne’s journey that they themselves are not crazy, nor alone in their suffering. There are those who are willing to walk with them and guide them toward healing, freedom and a more fruitful and meaningful existence.
