Carousel the Missing Years: Breaking the Chains of Abuse

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, May 1, 2007 - Self-Help - 260 pages

Elizabeth Burgess' Carousel with the drunk horses makes its last turn, but she ends up doing two stints in the psychiatric ward before she can function properly sober.

Finally, thinking that she is cured, she tries to go on with her life raising four kids, and pursuing a career.  But she soon discovers the Carousel that drives her to distraction where men are concerned still tugs relentlessly at her heartstrings.

Then a family tragedy throws her into despair.

Will she finally beat the Carousel that has plagued her life since she was five years old or will she be a hopeless, helpless victim forever?

“One Hundred Yards of Sand” is an amazing collection of poetry.  This eclectic mix shows humor and satire contrasted by pain and suffering.  Deep passion and self-doubts mix with strong convictions to show the full range of human emotions.

E.E. Orewiler dares to explore the lust, love, passion, and fear, that we all face at some time in our lives.

Like a circus barker of old, he invites you to, “Step up, old friend, and come inside.  I guarantee you quite a ride!  You’ll laugh!  You’ll cry!  You’ll be amazed!  What you see will leave you dazed!”
