Another client of THGM Writing Services publishes her book.  The Black Veil of Deceit, transcribed by Marina Kaye, is a true story of abuse and betrayal, escape and recovery.

Marina wrote her book as a healing exercise after escaping years of abuse. By the time she was through, The Black Veil of Deceit had become a literary anthem for women everywhere.

We have helped many people write their stories. Some of those stories hurt. Some of them are not easy to write. Marina’s is one of those stories that had to be written, even if it hurt to write:

“Writing it wasn’t easy.  It took me over three years to complete this book. It was very hard for me to write. It brought back all the bad memories, it made me feel sad, scared, angry and terrified. My house felt haunted, there were moments that I had to pause from writing for long periods of time, as I felt as if I was reliving it all over again. Writing this book brought me disappointment, resentment and hate.”

Black Veil of DeceitBut writing the book was a necessary step to healing. After the abuse ends, the pain lives on. Many psychologists recommend writing a book to help move past long-term emotional pain.

This is the true story of Sophie, a Greek Orthodox girl born in Egypt, who moved to Canada with her parents. She was raised in wealth, but restricted in movement. Her parents married her off to a man she didn’t love.

That was the good news. It was her second husband, the handsome one she chose, who would throw her life into a tailspin.

Sophie’s memoir will help women cope with abuse and with the emotional scars that remain after escaping. You can pick up your copy at Amazon.com or at Amazon.ca.

Thanks for mentioning Karen’s help in the book, Marina.

    There is no denying the healing that can come from writing, even presenting your own painful memories as fiction. My 2016 Amazon release of “Skipping Childhood” was a way for me to “kill” the past and my own abusers, through the help of my 12-year-old serial killer. Healing comes in all forms.
