Shelley Johnson shares her personal journey of overcoming sexual abuse from the hands of a close family member, verbal and physical abuse from another, as well as the abandonment felt by the lack of support from her family. She relates her struggles and daily battles of healing from resurfaced memories by sharing volumes of journals she wrote during her healing process, as well as the insights gained along the way.

Johnson describes a family façade that appeared normal to everyone around them yet hid many secrets within their large family of ten. In Frozen Children, she introduces us not just to her inner child, but to a number of inner children, frozen in time to when each abuse transpired.

This book also describes Johnson’s awakening with the help of holistic healers as well as her own journey into metaphysics and understanding her own spirituality. It is Johnson’s desire that others who have been victimized, along with their families, spouses, and significant others may find comfort and hope in her story of realization, struggle, fear, and finally triumph over her secret past.
