A woman who experienced childhood abuse at the hands of her father shares her story and shows other abused children how they can rise up despite their fears and fight to regain their voice
Felicity Allen has kept a secret for a long time, it was taking its toll on her conscience, and she could not take it anymore. At 30 years old, she decided it was time to share the story of her childhood. In “A Father’s Love?” (published by Archway Publishing), she chronicles the sexual and emotional abuse she experienced at the hands of her father for many years.
This collection of childhood memories offers insights into the thoughts and feelings of an abused child who felt lost and did not know where to turn for help. Written to help other abused children to have a voice and not be silenced by their abusers, Allen shows how they can rise up despite their fears and fight to regain their voice.
“When I decided to put this book together it was for one main reason. I needed to speak the words. The things I wrote about in my book are things I have never even spoken aloud in my entire life. However, I feel like the people who choose to read my story may be searching for answers on how to move on from their own demons like I once was,” Allen says.
When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, Allen answers, “I want my readers to realize they aren’t alone. Others out there who have suffered abuse in some way and they are feeling the weight crushing them. You can let it out. Do not feel silenced by your abuser or by society. Do not let your abuser win and take back your power. I believe in you.” For more details about the book, please visit https://www.archwaypublishing.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/838991-a-fathers-love
