"The next chapter in your life is going to be the best chapter of your life because your breakthrough of empowerment begins now."
These words end the preface and begin the reader's journey into the life and mind of Byrdy Lynn. From a profoundly troubled childhood come unflinchingly honest stories of abuse, neglect, violence, isolation, and blatant racism-a litany of events that left the author suffering from PTSD and suicidal depression.
As in any life, there are moments of brightness, but these are few and far between. Nonetheless, Through the Storm of Early Trauma is not told from a place of anger or resentment. Instead, it speaks with the voice of hope-that others who have lived such stories, and who are living those stories today, will find their own inner strength to seek the help they need and deserve.
