A Century of Secrets is a multi-generational story of how one family's struggle with abuse, personal identity and deep-seated family lies and secrets has caused suicide, alcoholism and lasting family scars. This book is one woman's journey to uncover the lies, overcome adversity, heal her soul and create awareness for childhood neglect and abuse; sibling abuse, and how children experience and internalize trauma. We have the choice in life, to live to our highest potential or give away our power. In giving up our power we stop living a 'life' and we begin to just 'exist or survive.' As you read, you will see a pattern develop and the horror of the human condition deteriorate and intensify as each generation of this family fights with their own existence, battles to find some amount of normalcy, while spending the rest of their lives living in their own personal hell. Each generation of this family lived under the shadow of lies and secrets creating a destructive and horrific pattern, until one woman decided to break the cycle and expose the lies and secrets. Times and situations may change, and for women, we have faced many challenges since this story began in 1911 Europe, but the power of the human spirit cannot be broken even though the trauma remains the same. "Trust me: It does not need to be this way! I now choose to be different." Teresa Syms

Author Biography

After experiencing a life time of abuse from her family, Teresa's rebirth began. Starting a new life, and a new marriage gave her strength and courage. However, that life was not meant to be. In 2007, Teresa was the victim of a head-on car accident, and she was almost killed. She was told her working life was over. Unwilling to accept this as truth, she worked to rebuild her life, again. Beating the odds, she discovered her path was not in the corporate world of Human Resources and Finance. Her destiny was pulling her towards her two greatest passions: writing and helping others. Determined to fulfill her destiny, she embarked on a journey of healing and discovery. Her writing gave her wings to conquer the traumas of her past and in her life-altering book, A Century of Secrets, she highlights the adversity, brutality and survival instincts of herself and members of her family. Teresa is proudly stepping into her bright future as an Author, and Personal Empowering and Emotional Strength Building Coach. She is living proof that through courage, determination and strong belief, you can gift yourself a brilliant future.
