Editorial Reviews

Review

One of the main reasons sexual exploitation of children thrives is because many people do not talk about it and even go into denial. That is what the perpetrators count on the secrecy, the shame and the guilt associated with these crimes so that it becomes very difficult to seek the truth and reveal the total picture. Relying on her Christian faith as a support system, this story demonstrates Catherine's persistence and utilization of the greatest weapon against sexual exploitation of children, public awareness and education. --Roger Young, FBI Retired, Special Agent

We have found [Laughter Calls Me] enthralling. There is a note of hope in the Lord .... that makes the reader aware that God is there, and that He finally breaks the dreadful power of the generational family abuse horror. --Wendy Howard, Despatch Magazine, Australia

Laughter Calls Me tackles an issue that is as close to our hearts as we keep our children. Brown's book gives readers permission to do what they feel is necessary to protect their children ... Laughter Calls Me isn't light reading, but it is important reading. --CYNTHIA WASHINGTON, Christian News Northwest

Format: Paperback
The horrors of what "Catherine" went through would lead a reader to think that the impact of all this on the rest of her life would have surely been tragic. And except for the interventon of the Lord I am sure that would have been so. But intervene He did and it is so obvious that she have allowed the Lord to do a mighty work of healing in her life. Instead of bitterness flowing from this, there is love and a passion for the purity of truth. There is grace and mercy in what she does now. There is a Scripture in Psalms- Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. That is perfect healing. The Lord has healed her wounds and that is why there is now so much fruit in her life. Oil cannot be released from a jar unless the jar has been "broken." Then the oil can flow and heal others. "Catherine" has told her story in all of its horrid details, sparing her reader nothing. She has been broken and she tells of it. But she has also been healed and that healing gives her readers hope and healing themselves.

Format: Paperback
The author writes well and quickly pulls the reader into the story. And a remarkable story it is. She easily could have died of an overdose while living the free-wheeling hippie life. But due to God's hand on her, her life was spared even when she was pursued by evil. Few have walked where she has in saving her children from their pedophile, pornographic father. She became a responsible, loving mother, devoted Christian and found a good life after her long circuitous searching. Inspirational. Gives hope to any family who has a member they think is hopeless. This book is being studied by our daughter's church in Allentown. A magnificently inspiring testimony.

Format: Paperback
Laughter Calls Me totally inspired me. Once I began the book I could not stop reading it. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. Catherine Brown's testimony of perseverence and endurance in a seemingly hopeless situation encouraged me greatly. There are so many things in this life to be afraid of, especially as a parent for your children. I was afraid of all the scary things that could happen to my kids, but after finishing Laughter Calls Me, I was encouraged to leave all my fears with the God who made us and loves us better than anyone.

Laughter Calls Me is a testimony of the faithfulness of a great and mighty God and His ability to deliver from the clutches of the sickest of sins. Our loving Father carried and guided Catherine through the darkest of darkness. This testimony is even more proof that there is nothing too hard for the Lord. God can reach into the sickest sin and bring beauty from it. As you finish this book you will come away fearing nothing but rather you will stand in awe of the One who is able to save us from all sin - our own and the sin of others.

Laughter Calls Me will change your perspective and it will fix your gaze on the glory of the Lord! Read this book and see what great things He has done. He longs to do great things in your life too!
