RESCUED by Alana M. Brayboy is a story of one woman’s drive to survive in a world that never gave her a chance. A victim of abuse who has not only managed to break the cycle and move forwards with her life, but stand tall and act as an inspiration to others, she has a story that you simply won’t be able to put down. To learn more about what it means and what she hopes to achieve by telling it, we sat down with her to hear more
“I wanted to write this book to give the world an insight into what it is like to live a life in which the hand you’re dealt seemingly gives you no choices. It’s an account of what I went through as a child, the hurt and pain it caused. But more than that, I want it to be a beacon of hope for anyone who is going through their own struggles in life, facing up to trauma, and rebuilding the life they were always meant to have. If I can help just one person live their life in this way, then I will know that the time I invested in writing the book will have been well spent.”
They’re such delicate issues to try and discuss, so where does she get her strength and inspiration?
“The people who were supposed to care for me and protect me were the ones who turned my world upside down in ways no one should have to imagine. What I want to do is be open and honest about what that feels like, talk about issues like PTSD which can come out years and years later, and also provide some direction by means of example on the ways you can move forward. Through my relationship with God, I have been able to search for truth and meaning in my life — something which I felt was missing for so many years when I was faced with terror and trauma. What I want to do is show the reader that when they continue to believe in something better and continue to love themselves, they can still make the changes in their life that will allow them to rebuild.”
It’s a strong message, so what happens next?
“I hope to start a dialogue and provide a voice in a world that is so traumatic and full of dark places for people who have been through things like me. No one should have to live like that, which is why I want to show people that they can rebuild, move forwards, and build a live for themselves.”
