SWEDESBORO — In the New Year, many people are hoping for a fresh start and to leave the emotional baggage behind.
With her debut fiction novel, Released: In Search of a King, a gripping tale about love, betrayal and second chances, novelist and Swedesboro resident Andrea Gadson brings hope that inner healing and becoming stronger version of ourselves is possible.
“Millions of people are coping with the impacts of physical, mental, and emotional trauma,” states Gadson. “As we begin the New Year, I want to empower anyone who has been hurt so that they can transform that pain into purpose and their trials into triumphs.”
Released: In Search of a King is about a young woman named Mimi Combs, coping with the impacts of being sexually assaulted by her father as a child. Her journey is riddled with obstacles and detours; but she finds her path towards inner healing.
“Mimi learns that betrayal serves one of two outcomes: to make us or break us,” states Gadson. “Ultimately, we possess the power to decide if we will be a victim to it or victorious over it.”
Released: In Search of a King is Gadson’s debut novel. Gadson is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Along with the novel, Gadson will be releasing a companion workbook outlining steps to enable the healing process, and hosting a series of workshops on inner healing in early 2016.
