"My Soul Cried Out But I Could Not Weep" is a powerful story of innocence lost and the tumultuous road to recovery. This memoir reminds me of the song, “We fall down but we get up” by singer and pastor, Donnie McClurkin. The author fell many times due to teenage pregnancy, extreme poverty, rape and spousal abuse but she felt strongly that God had a plan for her life. The story is a candid account of her life growing up in Jamaica, a life shrouded in secrecy and deeply affected by buried pain. Her faith in God gave her the strength to keep fighting through the pain of abuse, the loss from dreams deferred and some heartbreaking mistakes, to claim the life and the blessings that God had ordained for her life. This is a painful but inspiring journey that should be passed on to sisters, mothers, daughters, friends and every woman who is going through a crisis.
