Product Description

From a near-tragic death at birth to an abusive childhood and tumultuous and tragic teenage years, Cecelia Catherine tells the story of her life in this beautifully written memoir.
Locked in a conspiracy of silence and oppressive cultural expectations, she dared not open her mouth about the trauma that caged her from childhood.
Now unafraid to tell her story, Catherine takes us through the journey of abuse, the fight to be seen, the hunger of belonging, and teenage pressure. She shares her brokenness, depression, devastation and the miracle of reclaiming her sanity, while sharing hard-won wisdom along the way.

Whether you are caught up in a conspiracy of silence, amid a traumatic season, trapped in the aftermath of abuse, longing to belong, feeling like a misfit, confronted with the fear of the unknown, experienced pushbacks in your career because of your gender or dealing with the cultural dilemma of Singlehood, this book is for you.
Inviting you to walk in her shoes for a moment, Catherine lifts the veil off the shadow of fear, insecurity, shame, brokenness, abortion, and the abomination of losing her innocent in an African cultural environment.

As a victim of abuse, rejection, racism and mental health, she desires to shift the paradigm of stigma and offer society a chance to open its door of love and acceptance towards people suffering from such predicaments, and reaching out to those dying in silence. With the burden for women and children who feel rejected, unwanted and unloved, and those who have lost their sense of worth and worthiness, Catherine identifies with their pain, loneliness and their grief while offering to be a voice through her story.

In Beyond the Shadows, you may shed a few tears, share some laughs, and of course discover empowering life lessons for change as you share this unique woman’s life journey. This memoir is a brave, bold, and courageous book full of inspiration and motivation. Catherine’s story and the life lessons for change she shares will challenge you to move beyond the shadows of your pain and impossibilities into the exhilarating freshness of a new day filled with hope, faith, and the courage to embrace your future, not as a victim, but a liberated changemaker. Suoyo Aganaba – Senior Pastor, Spring House Ministry Nigeria

Catherine’s willingness to address issues which are taboo for many in her culture will be a challenge to some, and a breath of fresh air to others, but she is to be commended for her bravery in doing so. Cecily Paterson – Author, Love Tears & Autism

… raw, honest, and beautifully redemptive. This is a story that needs to be read by women everywhere! Megan Sayer – Writer, Communications Manager Ultra106five

...a story of LOVE, of GRACE that redeems, restores and of HOPE that never fails. Adeola Oluyomi – Pastoral Care & Accredited Mental Health First Aider

I applaud Catherine’s bravery and willingness to break the mould and free many. It’s real, intriguing, encouraging and breaks through silence, shame, brokenness, failures and challenges in life. Moreen Pakwan – Social Worker

No matter what tragedy you may have encountered, Catherine demonstrates that it is possible to transition from a place of great cost and grief to a place of humble celebration, through strength and victory. Bernadette Black - CEO and Founding Director, Brave Foundation. 2019 Tasmania Australian of the Year

In Beyond the Shadows, Catherine has been so open with her struggles, not so that we can feel sorry for her, but so that she can show us the lessons that she has learned through the hard times, and so that she can help others who are going through the same difficulties. In it all, her joyful spirit shines through, making this book a delight to read, despite the hard times she describes. Dr Ruth Amos – Author, My Year of Saying No
