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