A Child from the Inside Out is a memoir of suffering, friendship, and faith. I was but a student counselor when Lucinda blew into my life. We learned together, as her sad and almost unbelievable story of abuse and suffering came to light. Together, we faced sexual abuse, satanic ritual abuse, mental illness, and suicide attempts. Her personality, fractured into many pieces, needed to be mended. So, together, we walked a long and difficult road as the pieces of her personality started coming together through both therapeutic counseling and deliverance ministry. In the end, it is the light of Christ that overcomes darkness so that she begins to taste freedom. We have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. (1 Peter 1:19).

Their marriage merged two of Louisiana's most prominent families. But after five years, Katrine remained untouched in body and heart, her husband unable to fulfill his wish to produce an heir. For the sake of that goal, Giles would allow his wife to be bedded by the noble man who won the annual tournament of champions, a medieval contest held on the grounds of Arcadia, his magnificent estate. The honor fell to Rowan de Blanc, who had his own secret reason for joining the games. Katrine refused to submit to her husband's insane demands, no matter how devastatingly attractive her chosen partner.
