Description

"Out of the Shadows" is an insider's glimpse of life in the secret society of Mormonism. It is the true story of a rape victim struggling to make sense of the ideology of her life and the religion that convinces her that she is at fault.

Pamela McCreary is a nineteen-year-old Mormon when she is raped and beaten by two men. Certain that she is being punished by God for her disobedience, she attempts to design a righteous, and thereby, safe life.

Married for eternity in the Mormon Temple in Washington D.C., at the age of twenty-one, she embarks on a life of motherhood and homemaking. Hoping to find security and fulfillment, she turns her back on the over-riding passion of her life. In the process she loses herself, her religion, and the love she desires above all.

Her journey of faith, reclamation, and reconciliation is both poignant and funny. A tale of saints and sinners, mothers and daughters, victims and victors; this is a story for anyone who has ever lost hope and heart, and needs to believe in the healing power of love.

Gripping and provocative...regardless of your beliefs or experiences, you won't be able to put this book down...I loved it!
