The tale of her own life as a child in the hills of Arkansas, of Cherokee and Irish descent, and her spiritual struggle out of the sexual abuse from her mother, and also verbal, psychological and physical abuse of her parents and later her husband. She tells of her work in the Pentecostal churches as a minister, and the defense of the abuse from her husband by the leadership of those churches in the name of wifely obedience to the husband, and her defense of her children. (See also: Pentecostals and Sexual Abuse: Institutional Denial or Healing Ministry? -- upcoming, from this same author.)Cae Cordells story is a heroic tale of rising up out of horror into a new sense of self, and a new life in accordance with her faith. Cae not only has fought hard to recover her own soul, as it were, but has been for some years now counseling abuse victims, and in the state prisons, counseling abusers, to get them to a point where they can see the consequences of their actions. Among other things, in a poll of 500 abusers in the state prison system, almost all were discovered to have been themselves sexually and morally abused.This is a sin that just keeps on giving.
