Overview

This is an intriguing story of how a young lady grew up carrying the world on her shoulders. It’s about how women can become drained from being the wife, mother, sister, granddaughter, and daughter. While growing up in her environment, she became labeled by others. Everyone in the "hood",especially the girls, were pre-labeled; not to do anything or go anywhere in life. She was raised by her mother who had a 7th grade education along with three other sisters and one brother. Being the oldest, she became the one to take care of the others in the absence of her mother. Her environment caused her to become grown long before her time. As life went on, she wanted to be different from what she had been exposed to daily. She had experienced abuse and pain for herself as well as all the women in her family. After experiencing a great lost, she made a 180 degree turn around to stun her family and everyone else in the community. Although, the turn around did come about, she still fought her whole life to be better in everything she did. Her pride and determination to be that "so-called strong woman" could cause her great pain and drain her of the strength that she longed to have. She battles to overcome the history of abuse in her family while seeking a solution to break the "generational curse" that continues to haunt the women in her family. Can the cycle be broken? Can she ever get back that self-esteem, that self confidence, the strength that had been taken through a history of pain and abuse to strive to be the woman that she needs to be for her family? Can her younger sisters keep her dream alive; break the generational curse?

    A Woman Drained is an excellent book. It's very inspirational for young women. It's real and all women from all backgrounds can relate to the drama and experiences. The author expressed herself very well.

    A Woman Drained can be inspirational to women from all backgrounds of life. This story will make you laugh, cry, shout and be joyful all in one. The author expressed herself very well. She related to many experiences in her life from childhood to womanhood that all women can relate to. I would recommend this book to all women in my life, because I know that they will be able to relate to the experiences that are not talked about ofte. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'll give this book a 10. It was such a great book. Does anyone know if Carolyn Brown has written any more books? I would love to get one if she has.
