TRAIN GONE: A CODA EX-JW MEMOIR:
There’s a revolution in the literary world right now, full of people willing to share their most human pieces in order to help others through hard times. Rebekah Mallory is one of those necessary and valuable people. In this book, she bravely shows her battle through the most raw, vulnerable, and painful events in her childhood and young adult life, making her story and message of perseverance relatable to many different people and backgrounds.
From the many ex-JWs that will pick up this book and nod their heads at Rebekah’s struggle through (and ultimately out of) the Truth, to the CODAs (Children of Deaf Adults) who will relate to having to speak, reason, and interpret for their parents—or anyone who has ever dealt with repression of self, stacks of misplaced guilt, or the unfathomable tooth-and-nail effort of breaking free of society’s shackles, there is something here for everyone.
Her unique voice and undeniable sense of writing style make this book an experience worth having. I highly recommend it, especially to intuitives and empaths (INFJs especially, since Rebekah is one of our alien kind) who will appreciate the honesty and openness. Rebekah is, absolutely, an INFJ warrior in a fight for her soul, and her book illustrates that beautifully.
Personal note from me: First, I want to say that I can’t claim “editor” for this book. I edited an earlier draft, which Rebekah then changed around to make into a new, fantastic format. Since the content is the same, and I have now edited the sequel (being published this year), I wanted to make sure her awesome first book was showcased here.
This lady is one of my closest friends, and we haven’t even met in person! She shares my dark humor and we can sit with each other in honesty without judgement. I only wish she lived closer so we could share good food, good drink, and Star Wars binge-a-thons. She is amazing to work with, and a talented writer, and I look forward to collaborating with her more in the future. If you’d like to check out this book, it can be found on Amazon *here*!
