Author Sarah Deaderick’s new book “Broken” is a searing memoir of a childhood destroyed by physical, sexual, and psychological abuse at the hands of her stepfather.

Recent release “Broken” from Page Publishing author Sarah Deaderick is a heartrending reflection on the myriad failures of a family and a church community to protect a vulnerable young girl from the predations of her mother’s pedophile husband. Her cries for help went unanswered until her courageous young friends enlisted the help of trusted adults and she could finally embark on a path toward safety and healing.

Sarah Deaderick, founder and CEO of A Little Sunshine, a small business created to raise awareness for PTSD and child abuse, and mother of four who loves hiking, meditation, ice skating, and the ballet, has completed her new book “Broken”: a deeply personal account of her journey from a childhood shattered by sexual abuse to strength, healing, and happiness.

The voice of a child often gets dismissed. When you were in school, do you remember seeing the sad girl in the back of the class? The kid that smelled a little funny and was always picked on for it or was a bully themselves? What was your role in this situation? I wonder, did you ever stop to think, what is happening in their home to make them the way that they are? This true story is of a broken girl who took years to speak up and now is blurting it on the rooftops! She wanted to die because of the abuse and the traumas she experienced in her life, and most of the time, no one would even listen. There is so much trauma and so many people who do help but also so many people who do not know how to help. Dig into post-traumatic stress disorder, dissociation disorder, and so much more as she relives her life just for you. You will also find the resources you need to get help if you know someone or have known of someone who has been physically or sexually assaulted or just needs mental health help in general. Join her on this journey to create awareness around PTSD and child abuse. It could happen to anyone. More importantly, join her to create an army of very aware children to protect yourself from the monster predators that are very real.

Published by Page Publishing, Sarah Deaderick’s engrossing book is a poignant memoir of a young girl broken by evil and saved, ultimately, by the love of friends who risked everything to help her.
