HUSH: Breaking the Cycle of Silence Around Sexual Abuse – An Anthology by Tenita C. Johnson
New Book Seeks to Break the Cycle of Silence Centered Around Molestation, Rape
For many families, it’s the elephant in the room that everyone chooses to ignore. It’s the one thing no one talks about at the family reunions for the Backyard Barbecue. Like a cancer, it often lies dormant under the surface until it is triggered and simply can no longer be ignored — by the victim or the predator. Long before COVID-19, it was an underlying pandemic that has shifted the lives of Millions for decades. Released in late June of 2021, Hush: Breaking The Cycle of Violence Around Sexual Abuse chronicles the life- altering moments when eight women instantly lost their innocence and identity. In this candid literary masterpiece, eight authors bravely re-live their story from trauma to triumph over molestation and or rape. Their unique presentations demonstrate that even in the midst of pain, they hope to empower and encourage others to come forth to share their story – ushering them into a life of healing and wholeness. One particularly tough reality that plays out in the text, is that while many people encourage their children not to talk to strangers, many times, sexual predators are family friends or relatives whom the family would least expect. Sexual abuse knows no boundaries. This book dares to cover the issue in-depth. Moreover, Hush is a necessary reminder that the quickest way to rid this world of darkness is to shine a bright light upon it so that nothing can remain hidden.

A WIDOW’S RESILIENCE: Wisdom Keys From Moving Forward In Life And Love After Death Do Us Part Anthology Project – Volume 1 by LaTanya Orr Richard
14 Women, 14 Wisdom Keys, 14 Reasons to Believe That Joy Is Sure To Come In The Morning
This tell-all book shares the very transparent, personal stories of tragedy to triumph with others who’ve loved and lost. ‘A Widow’s Resilience’ serves as a foundation of strength in the valley of despair. Those who read these pages may be inspired to TRANSFORM – to courageously move forward in faith, life, and love with intention and purpose. With chapter titles ranging from ‘From Hell to Happiness’ to ‘A Renewed Mind of a Warrior Widow,’ the intimacy of their grief stories is laid bare as their stories minister to the reader.
The Michigan Chronicle, a weekly African-American newspaper based in Detroit, Michigan, quoted LaTanya Orr Richard, the creator of this anthology, in a recent interview as saying, “The seeds were planted for this project two weeks after my husband’s death, so my grief was new, and my feelings were raw. I wrote out my thoughts and shared it with a friend, and other widows who understood what I was experiencing. They insisted that I turn my thoughts into a book. Once I discovered so many other women who were like me, I decided to create an anthology. Doing this has been like therapy in motion.”
Nearly immediately following the book’s release in June 2021, Orr’s Call For Authors for Volume 2 is already underway. For additional information and to purchase the anthology, visit awidowsresilience.com.
