"Carole Estrup: The secret life of a BAREFOOT GIRL OUT OF OHIO"
2007-05-31 until 2007-12-31
Lincoln, NE, USA United States of America

Carole Estrups long anticipated new book, BAREFOOT GIRL OUT OF OHIO, A Memoir of Survival and Overcoming, published by iUniverse, Inc., the leading provider of publishing technology solutions for authors, announced today - From this powerful memoir, Barefoot Girl Out Of Ohio, emerges an extraordinary story of a brutally abused child who, as a wife, mother and artist blazed her own trail to healing. I dont think anyone ever fully recovers from childhood violence and sexual abuse, the author believes. But I do think one can heal and go beyond simply surviving. As diffiuclt as it was at times, telling my story has put meaning to my pain and suffering. Something about putting it on paper made it more real. My story will help others to understand that they, too, can persevere their way to freedom. Its not easy, but with small choices every day, and some big ones, a life can change dramatically for the better. Carole Estrup has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2002.

Born in 1935, Carole Estrup decided at age three to be an artist. Her lengthy career has merited exhibitions, awards and commissions in the U.S. and abroad. For the past 30 years she has lived in the Southern Sierras with her husband of 42 years, a writer.

Embodying all the resilience of the human spirit, Barefoot Girl Out Of Ohio (ISBN=0-595-43694-3) not only inspires hope, it exposes and clarifies the psychological impact and seemingly insurmountable obstacles survivors of sexual abuse must overcome in order to heal and thrive.
