 BACK COVER:
The Execution of Childhood Innocence: A Backward Journey to a Forward Destination transports you to a front row seat through the journey of a lifetime. In a unique style, author Demi Shugrue investigates the construction of her protective shield throughout the atrocities of abuse and applies the information to an understanding of the dynamics of adult personal interaction. The truth that lies behind the eyes of the battered child brings light to the shadows and reality. The ?mind chants? and echoes of the little girl inside the woman as they struggle to become one. Readers will experience the emotional struggles of an abused child and gain empowering insight from the reflection and significance of diverse relationships, including the most important of all: our relationship with ourselves, the process of owning our own lives. This is a journey of reflection, purpose, and ultimately hope. The Execution of Childhood Innocence is a testament to the fundamentally profound truth, self-value is paramount.

3. Ellie – A Story of Profound Loss and Abuse-
A must-read for both Survivors and Supporters
By Catharsis Foundation

Deborah Rose reveals the inescapable life of abused children in her book, “Ellie – A Story of Profound Loss and Abuse”. “Ellie” is a first-hand account of a disturbing reality shared by far too many children – only the intimate details, the people involved and the locations are different. “Ellie” could epitomize the concealed horrific life of a child you know, perhaps even yourself.

“Ellie” doesn’t waste words in an attempt to make the issue unduly sensitive or pretty and Ms Rose isn’t trying to put the reader in her shoes to solicit sympathy – she’s concise and to the point – child abuse is real and she’s lived it! It isn’t just something that happens in other countries – it happens closer to home but children are forced to never tell their secrets!

Ms Rose not only captures the hell that children experience while being abused, she offers helpful words of inspiration and hope for other Survivors who are searching for a way to heal from childhood abuse. “Ellie” is also a must-read for people who don’t understand the agony that constitutes the unfair lives of abused children not only during abuse but for the remainder of their tormented lives.

“Ellie” and Ms Rose are true inspirations!
