Releasing Me is the achingly poignant story of a traumatized ten-year-old girl speaking out at last through the mature and well-adjusted person she has, against all odds, grown into. Her story, recounted in great detail in this book, should give others in her situation the courage to speak out, and realize they are not alone.
A deeply felt gratitude should be extended by all who read this for this young woman’s courage in speaking out through this book, recounting the many hardships, mental anguish, and soul-searching moments she has endured.
Great job, Ms. Payne. Your superbly written and edited fictional account — based in painful fact — will undoubtedly inspire countless others.
