Decatur, TX, October 22, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Briggs & Schuster publishing house announced a novel by Sylvia Hornback Ed.D. With a broad distribution by Ingram to over 36,000 outlets, the recently released book, “Jeanne: A journey from abandonment and abuse to forgiveness and truth.” Experiences and stories from Sylvia Hornback’s own childhood in farming country and small-town Texas inspired the story of Jeanne. Readers will follow this resilient young girl from days of abandonment and sorrow to become an irrepressible young woman.
The story of Jeanne focuses on neglect, physical and verbal abuse. As a child, there are few opportunities to get away from this treatment and forgiveness becomes harder and harder as the abuse is repeated. Forgiveness in this case comes to Jeanne when she understands the abuser does not change. The abused person learns ways to cope and protect herself from future abuse. Jeanne manages this as she becomes an adult and is able to take care of herself. Forgiving her mother took away Jeanne’s bitterness, resentment, and anger.
"I hope the reader understands the role Jeanne’s belief in God plays in her life, her survival, her strength, and her ability to forgive."
- Sylvia Hornback
It is important to know that even if a family situation is dysfunctional, a person can find love through other people in their lives. Maybe some readers will identify with Jeanne and learn to cope through her experiences.
