January 30, 2013 (FPRC) -- Pacifica, CA. Many women who have experienced hurt and loss of self-respect from someone who professes to love them, may need their self-esteem and confidence restored. The author actually lived through emotional, physical, and mental abuse and survived the pain and distrust of the opposite sex. This experience led to the publication of a classical, yet informative novel.
IS YOUR SELF-ESTEEM AT RISK?
'A Challenge of Love,' a classic story based on true events, is set in the 1980's. Its story covers emotional, mental and physical abuse that is still widespread today, and still hidden until someone, be it a celebrity, or the Oprah show, brings it out into the headlines.
Do you know anyone experiencing abuse? Imagine yourself going through the shock and fear of abuse at the hands of another. Author, Gerri D Smith feels, 'this story may change your life, a relative‘s, or a friend‘s and may bring the power of self-esteem into focus.'
Dorri LaVogue, the main female character suffers abuse at the hands of her husband and fears the retribution of divorce by her strict parents. Just like Dorri, the hope and will to survive and start anew is deep inside each of us. No matter how abusive or hurtful a relationship is, there's still a kernel of bravery and survival inside - if you dig deep enough. And for the digging, you will come out better for it in the end.
Dorri finds her faith in love and marriage put to the test. Her self-esteem, and her hope of ever trusting the opposite sex again is at risk. 'A Challenge of Love,' says a lot about discovering yourself and your self-esteem - and that no one is perfect. Gerri says, 'To combat abuse in society, there is a crucial need to realize your self-worth.'
