Janet M. Little will be available to sign new book, “My Tears Were For Her”

One Leduc area author is sharing her struggle of what it was like to grow up as a victim of abuse as she has a new book coming out and a book launch party coming up soon.

Janet M. Little’s new book, “My Tears Were For Her,” is available for orders now, and tells the story of suffering abuse early in life and how she set aside her pain and decided to live her life.

“If they knew I had been sexually abused, if they knew my secret, they would think differently of me,” stated Little in a book launch press release.

“I’ll go through life wearing this mask that I believe is one that is acceptable. People will never know it’s not the real me.

“Yet my life is not real. I don’t know real love, for others or for myself. There has to be more to life on earth. I must tell, I must be real about who I am, with those I love and especially myself. If I don’t, it will surely be the death of me.

“The stress, the inner turmoil, the need to be someone I’m not is too difficult to live with any longer. I must come clean. I must get real in order to have a real life”.

Little stated in her press release, “This book contains the actual diarized, dated journals of a young woman who had been sexually abused. It’s real, it’s raw and it has purpose in a world that would love nothing more than to keep the damaging secrets.

“I’ve always had a heart for people who want more in life but may not know how to go about it. A kind, gentle no-nonsense approach leaves you feeling ‘there is a way and I have a plan’. Some faith, experiences, training, studies in business, women’s ministry, death/dying, and crisis management have contributed to the woman I am today.

“As a leader, an advocate, a writer and a speaker I want to encourage you to live in the joy, peace and freedom that is intended for each of us.”

Little has an awesome book launch coming up soon at the Leduc Coffee Shop, 4728 50th Ave at 7 p.m. Janet will be there with her spouse Gord to autograph copies discuss her experiences and talk about the purpose of the book.
