New Release an Inspiring Memoir About a Girl Searching for Answers and Healing; Book by Susan Gore, Published by Dog Ear Publishing

Madison, NC, July 03, 2010 --( A desperate teenage mother gives her infant daughter up to an older Christian couple. Thus begins the inspiring true story of author Susan Gore’s life. Under the strict guidance of Nanny and Papa Martin, whose own children have long since left the nest, little Susan tries her best to be a good Christian girl. Unfortunately, Nanny takes the mantra of “spare the rod and spoil the child” quite literally and Susan often has her legs whipped and spends a lot of time in a scary, dark closet being punished. Conscious as a young child--after a very abrupt and hurtful revelation from Nanny herself--that Nanny and Papa Martin are not her real parents, Susan can’t help but feel like a misfit. She feels terrified at the prospect of not being good enough for Jesus when the rapture comes. With thoughts like these, how can a girl be truly happy?

Susan spends her life searching for answers, and in the meantime gets married and has a child. Finally she finds fulfillment in the field of natural healing, where she experiences her own healing. Later in life, she discovers the universe doesn’t look at the names of religions or rules at all; it’s what inside the mind, heart and spirit that matters.

A Blessing of Sunshine and Wrath, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is a memoir told from the perspective of the adult Susan, who has undergone years of therapy and soul searching and has come to forgive, even love her adoptive mother. She writes with love and occasional humor. Readers will be moved and inspired by her life story.
