Awaken : The Awakening of the Human Spirit on a Healing Journey
This compelling story, based on true events, is written from the victim’s point of view and depicts how manipulation, intimidation, and cruelty of violence against women can be devastating and lasting. 19-year-old Lacey Lockwood, a beautiful, smart college student, is murdered by her possessive, controlling ex-boyfriend. After her death, she becomes trapped inside the body of Lisette La Tour, a straight-talking, no-nonsense stripper, who has been wounded by an abusive childhood and who dances under the name of “Attila the Hunny.” Lacey and Lisette share the spotlight on stage as well as on an urgent journey to avenge what has happened to them, move beyond the abuse in their lives, and discover that living well is, indeed, the best revenge. This inspirational story shows how anyone can triumph if they have forgiveness, courage, and strength.
