THE GREAT ENDURANCE:
My Journey. My Truth. My Life.
The Great Endurance is a powerful true story about an eight-year-old boy who is robbed of his virginity, his innocence, and the priceless treasure that protected it.
He continues to search for the truth of who he is. Hope is needed to help him cope through the hardships that follows the abuse he faces. But, instead of hope, he is greeted with deep-despair, guilt, depression, anxiety, and fear on a daily basis until suicide behests the ending of his life. Unfortunately, family and friends cannot hear the silent cries of his heart, and unknowingly, he slowly begins to fade away.
Who will save him from the thief who marked his territory and left behind seeds of torment and shame? The paths that he chooses along his journey leads to many dead-ends. Yet, no matter what he faces, he presses through it all with strength and integrity because he truly believes that everything will be alright.
Having to fight off a sexual addiction can be compared to an attempt at overcoming any other hardcore addiction, i.e., drugs or alcohol. The struggles are realistic and the challenges of life become too overwhelming. Endurance is the key to survival.
How will the young boy manage to make it through the disturbing-chaos that follows him into his adulthood?

About the Author
My name is Maurice L. Mitchell. I am excited about being a part of the Amazon KDP family. And speaking of family, my three amazing children are the very reasons that I am alive today. When suicide almost claimed my life, it was their love, support, humor, and continuous encouragement that kept me alive. In fighting for my own life, I was fighting for them.
I have just published my very first literary piece entitled, “The Great Endurance.” This is a true story. It is a deep look into my life in how I overcame the horrendous hardships of suffering through child sexual abuse.
My readers are encouraged to remain strong while facing each and every trial/tribulation. After reading my book, I would like for my readers to know that it is their faith and willingness to endure through life’s formidable obstacles that will solidify their victory through anything they face in their lives.
Everything is going to be alright; stay strong. Do not give up. Hang in there. You’ve got this!
THE GREAT ENDURANCE is more than a book title, it is a very life altering Survival Kit. Read about how the sexual abuse, pain, agony, and the dark places I dwelled in turned into real peace and true victory over everything that I was dealing with.
I am finally at peace with confronting my past. Acknowledging and overcoming my fears while embracing faith and strength is what it took and still takes in order for me to survive each and every day.
