Sharon Wallace, an author from Devon, is a survivor of abuse – physical, mental and sexual. In an effort to help others who are still living through abuse today, she has written a book about her own perception of what happened to her when she was growing up.
“My aim for writing about my abuse and making it public is to hopefully allow others to read it and know that a road can be found to happiness and no matter what we have been made to endure through some one else’s crimes, there is a life after desolation” she says.
‘A House Full of Whispers’ is a true account of her harrowing childhood; “It’s the first in a trilogy and is an honest account of my life with the highs and lows. There is a path to redemption within my books for any who have walked a similar road, I was lucky to be able to stop the dysfunctional lineage, and my family, and children’s children, live a life all generations deserve”
Sharon admits to struggling to finish the book at times, reliving many distressing images. For many years she tried to self harm, believing she was “setting the poison within my body free”. Now 50, Sharon wants to let the world know what she endured as a child and hopes to help others facing what she did.
“Small voices that stand alone will one day reach each other and become an ocean of power, every wave starts as a ripple”.
