Synopsis for Seduced Into Darkness: Transcending My Psychiatrist’s Sexual Abuse

Seduced Into Darkness: Transcending My Psychiatrist’s Sexual Abuse is a vivid and captivating story of hope for survivors of abuse as well as a case study in a skilled manipulator’s tragic exploitation of his professional power.

This poignant memoir chronicles the traumatic psychological abduction and sexual exploitation of depressed college student Carrie Tansey at the hands of her psychiatrist, Dr. Anthony Romano―thirty-one years her senior. For three years, their secret “affair” was carefully calculated and controlled by Romano, as Carrie’s mental and emotional health continued to deteriorate, bringing her closer and closer to the edge.

Their dual-relationship―clinical and clandestine―finally came to light when Carrie’s suicide attempts landed her in a world-renowned psychiatric hospital. Gradually, she began to reclaim her power, reported Romano to the state licensing board, successfully sued him for malpractice, and testified before the state legislature to help pass a law aimed at curbing such abuses.

As Carrie tells her tale, it is a journey paralleling that of the mythical archetype Persephone, the naive innocent who was abducted into darkness, reemerged and regenerated herself, then fearlessly returned to the prison she had fled, this time to help free others. Today, Carrie Ishee is a widely respected art therapist and life coach as well as a teacher specializing in the issues of ethics and boundaries for mental health professionals.

Review of Seduced Into Darkness

Anything that can help others overcome their fears in instances such as the one in this book, is #1 in my list.  I believe anyone who has fought terrible situations such as this, is considered my hero! Seduced Into Darkness is one to definitely to cherish and to never let go.  It is reminder that YOU matter, and you can help others that went through the same. Great job Carrie!

New Release! Reality’s Illusion by Stephanie Walls

FB164AE3-EF8B-4BC0-8A72-696D4974F64F

Synopsis for Reality’s Illusion

Relationships are ugly, dark—destructive.

They aren’t fairy tales.

No happily ever after neatly wrapped in a shiny bow or sparkling diamond with a heartfelt engagement.

And in their end, love was nothing but a beautiful lie told to hide the ugly truth.

This is reality’s illusion.

Review for Reality’s Illusion

I personally loved this book.  It was raw.  It had all the feels of a dark book such as this.  If you want a book that will hold you hostage, and possibly make you ugly cry from past experience, or just want something dark yet beautiful, this is the book for you.  You will not regret it!
