The long awaited National Release is here!
Available at amazon.com (Reviews GREATLY appreciated! Thanks in advance.)
Missouri author, Anita Agers Brooks’ latest release, Getting Through What You Can’t Get Over, hits Amazon and bookstores across the nation.
My core message is this, “There are things in life we’ll never get over, but we can get through, to discover how pain-filled people can laugh yet again.”
Amazon lists the following synopsis:
“There are some things in life people never get over. No matter how much they want to. Many experience abuse, financial disaster, serious illness, betrayal, death of loved ones, and other common traumas making them believe they’ll never move past the pain, but through research and true story compilations, author Anita Agers-Brooks offers emotional, practical, and spiritual insights from experts and people who have survived intense trauma—and have made it through seemingly impossible situations.”
“Where is God when bad things happen?”
“How can I ever get over this?”
“Will I ever be whole again?”
I asked these kinds of questions over a decade ago, when I went through a period of my life I now refer to as the Jobette years. (Because I felt like a female version of Job from the Bible.)
There were things I wanted to know from God.
“Am I being punished?”
“Are you mad at me?”
“Do you hate me?”
“What do you want me to do?”
At the end of each chapter of Getting Through What You Can’t Get Over, you will find Insider Insights, offerings from those who’ve survived deep anguish. People who have unearthed wholeness and happiness again. Who have gotten through, despite enduring things they’ll never get over.
Excerpts from Chapter One:
“When I met her, I was in the blackest hole I’d ever experienced. I cowered in a deep pit of depression and anxiety spawned by betrayal.The pain was raw and unquenchable. Each day I tried to scale the walls and scramble into some light, but with every attempt I slid back down the slimy slopes of the well and crumpled into the darkness of my despair.
Edie told me details I’d never read or heard about of atrocities in the Nazi prison camps—starvation, humiliation, cannibalism, emotional torture, mental games, physical maiming, and soul stripping. There was no part of the human existence left untouched by the cruel men and women who meted out the twisted desires of the SS.
I marveled at the confidence and peace echoing beneath her words. I couldn’t imagine surviving such loss and yet gaining such deep hope.
While we stood outside the terminal, she laid her hands on my cheeks as if she were touching fragile butterfly wings. “There is a wounded little girl inside of you who needs a mother. You mother her.” And then she hugged me close in a final good-bye.”
