Click the icon below to preview this book:

High street book shops are lined with topselling stories about abused lives. The news is full of stories of the abused and their abusers. There is an incredible demand for information, but there is so little hope for many looking for full healing from the consequences of abuse.

This book is different to many others. It is a powerful story that has emerged from a background of extreme abuse and journals her road to healing.

Sarah Shaw looked in control of her life, had a successful career as a manager in retail business but eventually came to a point where she snapped and was put on a lifetime's incapacity benefit. The consultant psychiatrist assigned to her admitted he had come to the end of how he could help without using electric shock treatment. Nobody knew she had been emotionally deprived and severely abused up to the age of 18.

Yet, this is not a story detailing the horrors of Sarah's abuse. It is a story of a profound journey, facing and unlocking the pain and bringing extraordinary healing through Jesus Christ.

“So many abused, hurting people don’t understand their brokenness. They are stuck, as I was, in the tormenting symptoms of guilt, self-hatred, multiple fears, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, eating disorders, self-harming and suicidal tendencies. The book gives insights into the Christian healing ministry I received and offers hope to victims of abuse, without negating the reality of the desperate inner conflicts and struggles ...
My heartfelt thanks to Ellel Ministries, for their compassionate hearts to the broken and through whom God graciously ministered to me and without whom I would not have made it”
- Sarah Shaw, author

“This remarkable book is about true recovery of health by a deeply wronged woman, whom I met more than ten years ago. Rarely is this subject written about, and even more uncommonly in Sarah’s calm and thoughtful way.” - Dr Geoff Searle MBBS. BSc. FRCPsych (Sarah’s Pychiatrist)

“A profound and moving story – it struck me that despite such harrowing experiences the human spirit can be so resilient and triumphant.” - Dr Adrian Hutchings MBBS. (Sarah’s GP)

“So many people around the world have been abused, and often their pain is muffled by secrecy. Thankfully the woman who wrote this book has decided to expose her pain to the light of Jesus Christ. By doing so she has found total healing – and I believe her decision to share her painful secret with the world will help many other abused people find complete emotional recovery.” - J. Lee Grady, Editor, Charisma Magazine
