I wanted to finally tell all the secrets I was beaten not to tell.

According to Ark of Hope for Children, 40 million children around the world are subjected to abuse each year. Ruby Lee Tuesday grew up in household of hatred in Norway where her father beat her down physically, mentally and emotionally until she escaped to the United States.

In her new book, “Better Believe: A Story of Hope,” Tuesday offers an inspiring story of determination, passion, betrayal and hope. The musician-turned-author journeys from the darkness of abuse into the light of self-healing where she learns to believe in herself for the first time.

“The most challenging part of writing this book was definitely to face and admit to all of the pain and sorrow from so many years ago,” Tuesday said. “I wanted to finally tell all the secrets I was beaten not to tell.”

“Better Believe: A Story of Hope” is Tuesday’s form of therapy where she tried to make sense of everything she experience and come to terms with where her life is now. As a victim of child abuse, she turned to music and many years of spiritual and physical healing to reach inner peace.

“I needed to take care of my whole being, my body, mind, emotions and spirit,” Tuesday said. “I want to share with others what life has taught me so far.”
