NEW YORK - September 23, 2020 - (Newswire.com)
Rebecca M. Painter, a gifted educator in literature, writing, and interdisciplinary humanities courses for over twenty years, has completed her most recent major work “[LOVE] RACHEL- A Daughter's Memoir of Love, Betrayal and Grace”: a frank, far-flung and often funny exploration of a painful mother-daughter relationship.
Published by Fulton Books, Rebecca Painter’s memoir challenges readers with a question: “What happens when you discover that the person you admire, love and trust most of all has secretly discredited your integrity for most of your life—even on their deathbed?” Rebecca Painter’s candid, compelling exploration of a decades-long quest to understand her wise but secretive and accusatory mother is for any reader challenged by hidden as well as open assaults on their character.
To understand and heal her deep-rooted trauma, the author transports readers across the Pacific to her mother Rachel’s youth in the outback of 1920s New Zealand, and her fateful voyage to the Pacific Northwest in 1939. Did a telegraph error ruin her engagement to the man she called the love of her life? Why would she quickly marry an American cult leader, Rebecca’s father, whose paranormal influence lingers after his untimely death?
Readers witness the family’s survival struggles, and Rebecca’s challenges as an outsider attending an elite women’s college—which resemble the barriers her mother faced in the British class system. Rebecca’s dream of a scholarly career is deferred, but her prayers are answered by the chance to care for and be reconciled with her dying mother.
Rebecca Painter’s memoir speaks of believable miracles, and how—despite decades of soul-wrenching negative judgments—personal integrity can be defended and empowered from within.
