Life Turns from Fear to Freedom in New Memoir, Silent Echoes, Published by Outskirts Press

Jacksonville, FL, April 20, 2010 --( Marilyn Fowler’s newly released personal memoir, Silent Echoes, published by Outskirts Press, follows the lives of a resilient mother and daughter who are both stubborn enough to get back up every time life dashes them to their knees and still laugh at themselves while doing so.

As their story unfolds, their childhood fears and confusions begin to be reflected in their lives as disturbing silent echoes that they need to deal with, and they discover that the influence of these subtle messages from the past has prompted wrong turns in their lives and led to their emotional disillusionment.

Only by candidly facing these fearful shadows do they achieve the insight that brings understanding, healing and finally freedom.

“Here’s an author who set aside the fears of looking into her past, and in doing so, emerged into newness and fullness of life,” said Reverend Betty Sikking of Silent Echoes.

“Marilyn Fowler has artfully combined her clinical observations with gut wrenching personal memories to reflect on the impact of childhood experiences on adult life,” said Martye Groble, Ph.D., LMHC, of this poignant memoir.

Marilyn Fowler’s brave and unflinching self-examination and her years of professional mental health experience combine in this notable memoir to produce a work from which any reader will be led to new insights about human behavior and about the richness of life.

Silent Echoes is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
