ENUMCLAW, Jan. 10 /Christian Newswire/ -- How does an abuse victim overcome the past and gain hope for the future? Susie Aseka Brooks, Teacher, Pastor’s Wife, and Kenyan immigrant found the answer and shares her hope.
Beyond the immense childhood hardships suffered by Susie, the question of whom she would claim as her father caused the most anguish. Torn from her happy childhood at age six by the death of her mother, Susie embarked on a desperate journey leading her through three continents to find her father. He Really Is My Father, the compelling book by Susie Brooks, details a quest to become a daughter.
Susie was first confronted with the question of “Who is your father?” at age five, but she had no need to find the answer because she was surrounded by the security of her mother’s love and a supportive familial relationship with Dutch missionaries living in her hometown – Nairobi, Kenya. In an effort to escape nine years of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of family members following her mother’s death, Susie searched for information on her biological father only to find that her mother was raped. Surprisingly, in this difficult process she discovers a father-daughter relationship with a man from her childhood. The unique experience Susie brought into this relationship made the journey of becoming a daughter a complex mix of emotions and beliefs that forced her to learn to trust. It was through this process of learning to be a daughter that Susie discovered her true father, God the heavenly father.
Of this book Jerry E. White, PhD, President Emeritus, The Navigators says, “This is a gripping story of a real life search for identity and truth. Woven in the fabric of Kenyan culture, Susie Brooks shows the power of God the Father in meeting her deepest needs while at the same time finding love and encouragement in an unexpected family. The Father-God shows His care in a powerful journey of discovery and surrender.”
He Really Is My Father illuminates topics such as child abuse, adoption of older children, Kenyan culture, the sanctity of life, and the fatherhood of God. For more information or to schedule an interview, call Adam Cothes at 360-802-9758 or e-mail at email@example.com.
