PR Newswire

TACOMA, Wash., July 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Brave and Unbroken: The true story of surviving incest and loss. It all started with a photograph, a lump and a diagnosis. Like so many other families, hers would never be the same. But her family never was like others... In Brave and Unbroken, Pennie Saum weaves an unforgettable story of sacrifice and hope. Years of being shuffled between army bases left Pennie, her mom, and brother rootless and vulnerable to the manipulations of a truly evil man. Against the odds, Pennie learned to negotiate a childhood filled with a terror no one should know while caring for the only protector she ever had. This heart-wrenching tale illustrates the manipulation and abuse that shaped Pennie as she transitioned from child to mother. Her story shows us how abuse, shame, and silence has the power to echo through generations, but also how with awareness, it can be stopped in its tracks.

The long awaited memoir also accounts Pennie's instrumental involvement in the passing of the Child Abuse Accountability Enhancement Act, eliminating the protection of military retiree's pension, when child sexual abuse has been prosecuted and a judgement has been awarded. The CAAEA was signed into law 12/2017. KOMOTV NEWS Story on Pennie Saum and the signing of the law.

"Pennie Saum's memoir is an overwhelmingly powerful and honest retelling of a horrific tormented childhood.  She steps out of the silence that comes with childhood sexual abuse and brings forward the reality of the impact of trauma such as this.  She has intertwined her childhood past with her mother's battle and how the two stories relate.  Brave and Unbroken is a perfect title for Pennie's story.  Her ability to share her voice, overcome horrific trauma and help make change for others is a true testament of her bravery and a story that everyone should read." - Marilyn Van Derbur, author of Miss America by Day www.missamericabyday.com
