NEDAW: It’s Time To Talk… Rebecca Angel Parker finally finds her voice…
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 21st February 2011
ANGEL JUST-RIGHTS, Rebecca Parker (Publication date: 13 Feb 11; Biography & Autobiography, Psychology, Social Sciences, Anorexia, Mental Health).
Talented new author exposes exhilarating epic of endurance: beautifully candid, bravely sincere, witty, compelling, and astute. Launched in conjunction with NEDAwareness Week (20th – 26th February 2011) and adeptly reflecting this years’ theme – “It’s Time to Talk about It” – the World excitedly receives exclusive, highly original work of fiction. Based on a true story of one child’s lost voice in Angel Just-Rights lays an astonishing story of strength: “easy-to-read (far from superficial), a thought-provoking motivator, and an insightful presage for all…”
Evolution of the book – realisation into the debilitating extent at which broken down channels of communication, life experiences, and ingrained individualistic personality traits, have been allowed in full strength and power to render one so weak – are explained by Parker in her beginning Preface. Book 1 delves into issues relating to everyday living such as dealing with strict family values, loyalty and devotion while intermittently riddling with her reader in efforts to gain the yearned-for rationality and reassurance so desperately sought. At the height of deathly battles, harrowing happenings of Book 2 raise one simple question: how can implicitly pure intentions precipitate such devastating results? A plethora of mortifyingly unhealthy, demoralising and ritualistic behaviours manifesting deeply in a single fragile life so touched by the world around her are showered, shatteringly, over the reader.
Gradually learning how coping in silence can cruelly fester, devastating consequences are hastened: eating disorders (Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia), post-traumatic stresses and flash-backs, self-harm, psychosis, suicidal desires, over-exercise, increasing obsessions, extreme rituals, distorted beliefs leading to incredibly debilitating afflictions to low self-esteem, mood swings, depression, hospitalisations, sectioning under Mental Health Act and excruciatingly honest accounts of associated inequitable treatments enforced. Startling, captivating, and bitterly heart-rending to the general reader, a silent sufferer’s solace, enlightening to friends, families and health professionals alike, in equilibrium with the theme of this book, Parker’s voice adeptly portrays ironic angst exceptionally, right to the very end.
About the Author
Reading and writing have always excited Parker, previous works winning recognition and Prizes for both short stories and poetry. Sharing this unique collection of books, originally cathartic in aim, enables her to offer even a strand of hope unto any individual similarly searching for their own “only voice that is allowed” and to offer even a slice of solace to those continuing to hurt silently and alone. The disclosure of her story also aims to offer those enduring the last few years of this particular stretch of “illness” by her side, excessively long-awaited answers and an opportunity to finally embark upon healing.
