This book not only delves into the KKK, but it also weaves throughout the story, facts about PTSD. Ms. Brame lived some pretty horrific events in her life, a possible molestation as a child, a horrific rape at the hands of a man who she was dating and later married, and the torture of a hate group. It amazed me how her brain handled it, basically not allowing her to remember these things for her own protection. The mind is a powerful thing! How she has learned to live with the memories now is amazing and it is obvious she is a strong woman. Her life would have most likely crippled someone with less strength. I just wanted to protect her, this book has that much emotion!
When I finished this story, at first I felt sad. But then, seeing what Ms. Brame was able to overcome and to survive through, I think this is more a story about survival and strength. It is also a good lesson of warning. We are living in a precarious time right now and this story can provide a lesson on how hate still exists and what it can do if left unchecked. I would recommend this book highly.
I truly appreciated the experience of reading Tracy Brame’s writing style, it consisted of details far greater than expected along with the dedication to make her readers get a feel of the environment as they read. There are quite a few characters that were introduced, one stood out, in particular, Jayns C. Jhomes. I began despising Jayns, while also wanting to reach out and console Tracey from such a traumatic experience she had encountered such a horrible person in disguise. I’ve caught myself on numerous occasions wanting to tell Tracey that it’s not her fault and it needs to be reported. One moment that urged to do so, in chapter “Cadet Clinic, 1990” under section “Rape Exam”, it just invoked such anger and sadness at the same time. Although it mainly revolves around the symptoms and living with PTSD, Tracey Brame’s writing invokes proper emotions to accompany her written words, effortlessly. Every detail throughout haven’t gone amiss, leaves you feeling as if you were standing alongside; a witness without a voice.
In “Undeterred”, it seemed as though the character Tracey was too forgiving and naïve, but also very loving and saw the positives of everyone including the main one who constantly wronged her. She goes through more downs than ups and manages to keep going, that shows strength. Author Tracey Brame writes in such a way that keeps you reading without wanting to set the book down, you never know what would happen next as encounters with Jayns can be unpredictable. This book is starting off as one of the best reading experiences I’ve had to begin 2017. The majority of the book was focused on the traumatic experience that led to her PTSD, but you’ll discover that her journey is definitely a rollercoaster. I recommend for everyone who wants to learn more about having and coping with PTSD, as well as working up the courage to seek the justice you deserve, gain the strength if you can from in this book.
