Hardcover. 240 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.When faced with the truth of her experiences, Elizabeth Jeane Baldwin finds that in an effort to find acceptance, she has lived her life as someone else. One of Elizabeth Jeane Baldwins earliest memories is of being confined to her familys Midwestern farmhouse. A Quarantine sign nailed to the front door and a pane of icy glass separated her from the father she loved and leaned on for comfort. This cold separation is perpetuated throughout her life, beginning with her emotionally distant mother and complicated by her fathers growing bond with a woman he invited to come live with the family and assist him on the family farm. After her fathers betrayal, Elizabeth leans on the strict teachings of the Catholic Church for support until a sin sets her spiraling into a life of debilitating shame and guilt; a sin which leads her astray from her life of innocence into one of paralyzing fear, betrayal and abuse. While in pursuit of a sense of belonging, Elizabeth uncovers her mothers most guarded secrets. It is the discovery of these secrets, which allows her to discover the woman she truly is, as opposed to the woman others have molded over the years - a woman who finds that you can love others for all their humanity and not be forever bound by their limitations. It is her lifelong yearning for a connection with God and family that eventually leads Elizabeth to discover that the strongest, most supportive relationship she will ever have is the one she forges with the Spirit of God within herself. It is this discovery which changes her life, and perhaps, will change yours. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. N° de ref. de la librería
Sinopsis: “An inspirational story of a woman’s painful pursuit to escape the guilt that imprisoned her.”–Kirkus Reviews One of Elizabeth Baldwin’s earliest memories is of being confined to her family’s Midwest farmhouse, a “Quarantine” sign nailed to the front door and a pane of icy glass separates her from the father she loves and leans on for comfort. This cold separation is perpetuated throughout her life, beginning with her emotionally distant mother and complicated by her father’s ongoing affair with her mother’s live-in half sister. Betrayed by her father, Elizabeth leans on the strict teachings of the Catholic Church for support until she committed a “sin” that sets her spiraling downward into a life of debilitating shame and guilt; a sin which leads her astray from her life of innocence into one of paralyzing fear, betrayal and abuse; a sin that separates her from the church she loved and who now abandons her. Elizabeth shares her shame and struggle of abuse and the spiritual journey that leads her to freedom; a journey that eventually leads her to discover the true meaning of her relationship with God, where she learns to trust enough to uncover those parts of her she has kept hidden and to come to know herself apart from the woman others have molded. It is this discovery that changes her life, and perhaps, will change yours.
