Book review: I Was a Secret...But Not Anymore: A Memoir (Queen Juliet El Shaddai)

I Was a Secret...But Not Anymore: A Memoir


Book review: I Was a Secret...But Not Anymore: A Memoir (Hardcover) By  Queen Juliet El Shaddai   (Author)
 
 This book is about the personal life of Juliet, a Sierra Leonean lady, who endured the pains of domestic violence and abusive relationships. The book is full of sad moments covering the period of her early childhood, the war in Sierra Leone, her adventures in Senegal, etc. One can easily relate to these events, even if you have never been a victim yourself. Sometimes people get trapped and do not realize that they are victims until it is too late. In some cases, the perpetrators (abusers) may not also be fully aware of the long-term implications of their actions.

Juliet's story is about hope and survival. A recommended reading. You can purchase a copy at Amazon.com or other bookstores.

    Haja Fatmata Binta Bah - It's been 10 years since you left us

    10 years ago, this day (7th April), I lost a very special woman in my life.
    10 years later, I still feel the urge to connect with her.
    Words cannot describe the emptiness.
    There’s no substitute for a mother’s unconditional love.
    Neneh, we miss you. May Allah continue to bless you, and may you continue to rest in peace.
