On Unclipped Wings, self-published in October 2019
It is possible to live “On Unclipped Wings,” even when our right to choose has been torn from us. For there is something far more profound than having choice – it is the freedom to think. And when we discover that no one can stop our thoughts, we discover that they can’t destroy who we are.
In this true account a father enslaves his daughter. He holds her captive through manipulation and force. He tries to break her, and even though he thinks he succeeds, something deep rises within her. She finds that the human spirit can’t be quenched, that inside each of us is a flickering flame. And even though it might seem like it has been snuffed out, God somehow coaxes it back to life.
“On Unclipped Wings” is my story, written in third person. All names have been changed. It is also a testimony to the all-powerful God, the one who gives each one of us the strength to choose him above all else.
“A painful, inspiring, beautiful story. I found it powerful and gripping, thoughtful and challenging.” AC
“An account of growing up in a context few of us could imagine. Despite many opportunities to be bitter and faithless this book is a record of hope and trust in God.” KB
“Eva shares a story of extraordinary hardship with an extraordinary generosity; her words tell of the hope that does not put us to shame. A compelling read.” RB
“Because of my own experience, I felt the pain and confusion on each page. Then I realized that it continues on all over everywhere for so many. Your transparency and courage in the telling, of God’s deliverance and redemption in the end, are so important for those currently in a situation or who have come out of one. There is an exit, healing and “normalization” of life and purpose. Stories like yours help encourage and direct the way.” JS
