Overview

A mother is a figure of love, compassion, warmth, comfort, and protection. Mothers generally provide selfless love and assure the good and the best for their children. But, it is also a fact that some mothers are capable of inflicting pain to their children. What kind of life do these abused children live everyday with their abusive mother—or worst, stepmother? In Life Before and After Stepmother, an emotional yet inspiring memoir of author Pamela Mobley, she shares about her life and struggles at the hands of her stepmother. Though her parents got divorced when she was still very young, they gave her great love and care. She never found time to frown for love was all around her and everyone showered her with happiness. But her fresh cheerful world turned into a room of murk and affliction when her wicked stepmother stepped into her life. Her father’s marriage to this woman was the beginning of her painful journey through abuse and maltreatment. At a very young age, she experienced unreasonable beatings, unjust deprivation of affection and freedom, constant cruelty in many forms, and so much more that left her not only with physical bruises and scars, but also emotional blemishes and wounds that needed a great amount of time to heal. While lessons abound in this captivating memoir, readers will find themselves moved and inspired by the author’s life, the one she calls Life Before and After Stepmother, as they follow her from a childhood full of love that hastily shifted to full of soreness and affliction; to becoming a young responsible girl; to finding true love, living with prayer, embracing God, and allowing forgiveness a place in her heart; and to starting a new life with her loved ones.
