“Incest Repressed: Faith and Healing”: a gripping account of one woman’s sexual victimization, the detachment and repression of memories that resulted, and the personal struggles that ensued until experiencing healing through a newfound relationship with Jesus Christ. “Incest Repressed: Faith and Healing” is the creation of published author, Ann B, a senior bank and retail executive, chaplain, and philanthropist.
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ann B’s new book is a gripping account of the author’s painful past. Ann B grew up in seeming luxury and privilege. To the outside world, it was an idyllic life, but at age five, when the family moved to Beverly Hills, Ann’s world becomes anything but perfect. Ann’s father and the family butler began to sexually abuse Ann.
Detachment, or mental separation from the shame, emotional turmoil, and abuse, becomes Ann’s means of survival. Over time, Ann becomes so successful at detaching that the horrific memories are fully suppressed. But in Ann’s mid-twenties, the abhorrent images of being sexually abused begin to surface. Ann struggles with the reality of these images and with self-doubt.
At about the same time the flashbacks begin, Ann starts down a path of spiritual exploration. Raised as an Orthodox Jew, the mere mention of Jesus Christ unnerved Ann. And yet the journey Ann takes ultimately leads to a strong belief in Jesus as the Messiah.
In these pages, Ann describes the arduous forty-year path to healing. Ann struggles to accept the truth of the recovered memories. Ann’s first two marriages fail, leading her to find a true-life partner and a successful third marriage. Ann suffers at the hands of incompetent, even harmful, psychologist before finding the therapeutic approach that ultimately helps. At the heart of Ann’s story is the healing experienced through faith and a relationship with Jesus Christ.
