The Talebearer: A Poetic Memoir

Ithirial Rising Press

A family hides their secrets under a facade of tranquil faith, even as darkness consumes them beneath the surface. The fear and shame grows until one young woman breaks under the weight, her body and mind unable to contain what she has survived. Using her scars, she becomes the talebearer as she reveals the truth of her upbringing. From her darkest moments, to the small victories of recovery and healing, she rises from the ashes; determined to be proud of all her scars.

She broke her silence in Scraps of Love, now Shann Tajiah delves further into her journey from victim to warrior.

"Where I am, becomes where I've been..."

    So begins the tale of a young woman's journey through the trenches of abuse as she fights towards the light.

    Scraps of Love is a raw, unfiltered poetic journal that spans twelve years, and explores the inner workings of the mind of a survivor. Using her poetic voice, the author holds nothing back as she clings to hope. Along the way she learns to redefine her role as "victim" to that of "victor" as she reaches for a life of self-acceptance, freedom and faith.
