Cassandra Baptiste exposes family secrets, faces her abuser,

and challenges her self-image.

We’re all aware of the statistic that 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused in the United States; this means that at least one person in your life has been affected by sexual abuse. With twenty-five percent of our population having endured abuse, many of whom go through life without therapy, it has a huge impact on everyone’s lives. Mollie Innocent’s book, Familiar Strangers: Chronicles of Indoctrination, Liberation and Self-Discovery, is virtually a first-person diary of self-reflection that delves into her psyche, telling the story from childhood grooming to the aftermath of confronting her abuser.

As the subtitle suggests, this is a moving story that chronicles indoctrination of sexual abuse, liberation from the mental chains and self-discovery during the process. However, this is not simply a story about surviving sexual abuse. It is about a going on a journey to find yourself. Familiar Strangers is a story that will cause you to reflect on your own.

One Amazon reader said, “I also got to know myself a little better from reading Familiar Strangers--it helped me to see my own upbringing and family life and how that shaped my worldviews. Finally, I was left with an encouraging nudge to start sharing my story more often. This story will change your life.”

Another reader stated, “The story is so real, so gritty and at times, frightening. I hung on every word. I cried with Cassandra Baptiste. I cheered with her. I felt her pain and her joy. This is an important book and a must read for everyone.”

Ultimately, Familiar Strangers will be an inspiration to not only those who have survived abuse, but provide enlightenment for many of those who don’t understand it, and challenge their worldview.

Book Synopsis

Is it possible to help others before helping one’s self? Cassandra Baptiste, a Haitian-American college student, is passionate about saving the world; however, before she can mend broken hearts and shape brighter futures as a therapist, she must confront the memories of a grisly childhood buried deep in her mind. As she unearths the skeletons that threaten the peace of... her promising future, the façade of perfect New Jersey suburbia begins to fade and reveal her true reality—a dark world of sexual abuse, voodoo ceremonies, and deception.

This is the story of a young woman’s self-discovery as she confronts the evils risking the sanctuary of her sanity and the potential destruction of her family. This is a battle between fate and self-determination, faith and superstition, indoctrination and liberation. Can she reconcile her dismal past and learn to trust herself and others again? Will facing her demons finally lift her curse?
