‘Untangled: A story of resilience, courage, and triumph’ by Alexis Rose two drops of ink book store

The Book Shelf Shout Out

As many of you know, we started adding several new features on the site this year. You, our dear followers, readers, and contributors, have given us your blessing and let us know that you like these new ideas. We appreciate your feedback. It’s important to us.

Personally, I’m loving “Hump Day Humor,” and we are getting some great feedback, comments, and views for those posts. We are also doing a “Sunday Spotlight” for our published contributors that will serve to further expose their writing, blogs, and personal links to social media, books, and other creative outlets. Yes, that’s right, we help to expose writers media outlets; that’s the beauty of our collaboration with other writers, authors, and bloggers – it’s purely win-win.

Today is our inaugural post of “The Book Shelf Shout Out.” This will be a once a month post (on Saturdays when we generally take a break) that will serve to highlight the books on our “The Book Shelf” page. We will take one of the books from the shelf and feature it in the post. Please take a look at these books to see if one might fit into your summer reading list, and please help us share the post, the page, and the work of these authors.

This first post will feature Untangled, by Alexis Rose. Enjoy!


51vwwrqpj-lRecalling her life, the author takes us deep into the inter-generational ritualistic abuse and mind control programming that led to her being sent overseas on an impossible mission.

She repressed the memories of her past until a family tragedy forced her to face what her life had been. A history of abuse, torture, and threats to maintain her silence or be killed, could no longer be denied.

This is the story of facing the truth and risking the consequences of breaking the silence. The author learns to accept the effects of the trauma that echo through her daily life as PTSD.

Through years of self-exploration, she learns to live her life fearlessly, with eyes wide open. Ultimately this book is about resilience; hope for victims who have suffered trauma and for the people who support them.



Alexis Rose began her remarkable healing journey in 2009. Sparked by a family tragedy, she began to piece together, for the first time, a personal history of abuse and trauma. Supported by her spirituality and writing, as well as family and friends, she has profoundly grown and changed over the years. While learning to live with the effects of her trauma, and working with the deficits caused by PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), she has co-authored three inspirational books. Her newest book, Untangled, speaks to the courage, resilience, and triumph over her unimaginable hardship. Alexis is an experienced speaker on the topics of living with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.  She is also an active blogger who writes about PTSD, Mental Health, and Trauma, with a bit of poetry sprinkled in along the way.
