Page 158 Books welcomes author Sue Parisher to celebrate the release of her book Rock Bottom and Faithless about her journey as a domestic abuse survivor.
LTC (Ret.) Sue Parisher served twenty-one honorable years on active duty, living a double life of capability and accomplishment in the service while enduring brutality and abusiveness in her twenty-year oppressive marriage.
The constant need to relocate due to Army orders every few years definitely contributed to her abuser’s ability to weaken her defenses against him. The atmosphere of military masculinity of the time and her daughter’s diagnosis of leukemia continually added gasoline to the horrors of her world.
Today, Sue is happily married to a wonderful Christian man whose children and family have overwhelmingly welcomed her into their world. She has three unbelievable children who have been her inspiration and motivation during all these trying times. Her daughter’s cancer has been in remission for 15 years.
