All she ever wanted was freedom: from sustained abuse by an uncle and from the addictions and alcoholism caused by it. FREEDOM | Saoirse is a memoir following a young girl's experience growing up in Ireland, in abject poverty, her move to America, her journey through intensive therapy, self-discovery, forgiveness, and ultimately finding the freedom she fought for.
FREEDOM | Saoirse traces the author's life from her early years growing up impoverished in Galway, Ireland, in an emotionally limited home, into the misunderstood heaviness she carried from years-long abuse by an uncle, and the subsequent addictions and alcoholism that followed the abuse. She thought a move to America would be an escape from these secrets, but she discovered it was all coming with her anyway. In a sudden revelation, she then embarked on a grueling, dark, and lengthy journey into sobriety, individual and group therapy, and self-discovery wherefrom she learned to form new relationships – both good and bad – and none more important than the one she forged with herself and a higher power. Ultimately, she found the power of forgiveness, the importance of rigorous honesty, the value of therapy, and how they worked to deliver freedom…from the past and from the thoughts that can imprison us.
