Just released exclusively on Amazon , Alas Peace Be Still is the heart - and often gut wrenching - account of Angelique's reaction to seeing Oprah Winfrey interview critically acclaimed producer Tyler Perry.
The result is a moving and inspirational account of the author's state of life, the realisation of the depth of her faith, her shift from balancing on the brink of suicide to embracing her life - even the parts she is not happy with.
Alas, Peace Be Still is not easy to read. At times Jessica Angelique's despair and desperation are almost overwhelming - but she writes with such generosity and such truth you can not turn away. It is indeed a rare privilege to be able to share someone's journey as they rediscover the truth of themselves.
Toward the end she writes:
"When you spend time with yourself, you get to know yourself and that's what's happening to me. I'm finally getting to know my true self. It also means that you learn how to love the person that you are."
Jessica Angelique's courage and honesty are a rare gem indeed.
By Angelique Jurd for The Kindle Book Review
Jessica never entered therapy to give herself a chance to heal her deep wounds. That's why her world came crashing down on October 27th, 2010 while watching Tyler Perry share his own life story.
The net result is Alas, Peace Be Still, a heartbreaking memoir by a survivor with every right to be bitter. Miraculously, this once-anguished soul has ostensibly put the nightmare behind her and arrived at a peaceful place of gratitude and serenity.
