A True Story of Pornography Addiction

We'd like to recommend a true story for our followers, FORSAKE ME NOT by Damian and Rachel Caprice.  It is a harrowing tale of sexual addiction that touched their family and interrupted their road to happiness.  Far too many families are being dragged into this sad, destructive lifestyle and we wanted to draw attention to the issue by highlighting this book.  It is available on all the retail sites, including Amazon and Smashwords.  It's only been available just this afternoon, so take a look and share with anyone who may be in need of support and/or help.

Amazon 5 Star Review by Lesley H.

"Honest and Compelling:
Pornography, although its use is virulent, is still very much a taboo subject. When people use porn, in the main, they like to keep it to themselves. That's why, from the outset, I thought the author of this book was very brave in telling his story. Porn often seems like harmless fun but, as the author shows in this touching and brutally honest account of porn addiction, its effects can be devastating; not only on the user of pornography but on their families.

Wonderfully well written, Forsake Me Not is a compelling and at times disturbing read that will make you question the accepted role of pornography in today's society. The book also provides great advice for dealing with porn addiction if you are currently experiencing problems.

All in all, this is a fascinating account of one man's struggle with this all too common addiction, and a great resource for those who are trapped in its grip."

A True Story of Pornography Addiction and Its Tragic Consequences.

Pornography does not knowingly select its followers, nor does it seem to care the age or sex of the ensnared victims. It casts a wide net, capturing and reeling in all who cannot break free from its web of sultry images and hidden lies. Forsake Me Not recounts a 45-year struggle for one of porn's many casualties, Damian Caprice.

As a young boy he fell prey to this insidious plague, and battled it through a lifetime of deceit. Pornography addiction forced Damian to shelter his obsession from family and friends, successfully doing so for three decades of mental anguish. In this deeply personal tale, the author shares his thoughts, feelings, and regrets, dating back to the age of free love and the sexual revolution.

Damian and Rachel Caprice's 35-year marriage is scarred by years of sexual addiction. Their journey has been littered with turmoil, soul-rending hurt, and broken trust. However, their tale is one of hope and healing for individuals and families affected by porn's ever expanding reach. Through their words realize freedom and redemption are possible, and look to the future. Success truly is measured in trying...just one more time than you've failed.

The book chronicles their history and relationship, including the strategies they used to overcome the addiction. The Caprice's are not sexual therapists, but they are two people who found their love strong enough to bring them back from the brink of disaster. As further help, there is a summation of pornography myths and resourceful, online links for addicts, family members, and even children with addictive behaviors.

The battle against pornography addiction is grueling. Still, it is a fight worth waging and the rewards are plentiful. Download this insightful story, drawing on the restorative powers of love and forgiveness, and begin the process of healing today.

So the Heart Can Dance
A Hidden Beauty Novel: Book #2

For most, between birth and death, lies years of hope, family, and love.  However, along that winding road that leads from one to the other, sometimes the unthinkable mars the journey, perpetuating heartache and unending despair.  Tara Isamu, a dancer blessed with grace and elegance, lives a remarkable life.  She sees her future as joyful and bright...but that all changes in an instant, when a single, rage-filled act of violence steals her innocence.

Tara’s dreams are suddenly, and irreversibly shattered, turning her emotions and talents inward, where she harbors a secret that has seemingly blemished her soul.  She is left in darkness until a chance meeting with an old friend opens the door to healing and love.  Aidan O’Brien and Tara’s relationship is borne of youthful exuberance and tempered in the foundry of tragedy.  Together, they walk a difficult path, one that heals through understanding and acceptance.

So the Heart Can Dance is a love story, written with deep meaning for anyone who has endured life-altering misfortune that leaves behind unseen, yet very real scars. Read it as a celebration of the soul’s ability to overcome the worst of life’s challenges.  It will lift, inspire and breathe hope into the most painful experiences, and teach us all...we can surely dance again.
