The Bacteria of Hurt: Book 1: Innocence
Kate E. Stephenson, contributor
Told in the voice of a vibrant, bright young girl raised in the 1960s South, this first book Innocence exposes the poisonous bacteria of hurt. Unaware that she has been infected, Little Paula navigates through life with a constant, gnawing sense of displacement. Seeking familial acceptance, maternal affection and answers to the mystery that obscures her identity, she will discover that silent wounds fester and secrets have fatal consequences. In this debut memoir, Paula Lett blasts open the closet doors to proclaim the secrets that have held her prisoner to the skeletons of the past and demons of darkness. In her quest to find her rightful place, she dares to question and defies the command of silence.
