Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At age fifty-two, Roger Dean Kiser, a survivor of physical, verbal, and sexual abuse, came to the realization that the future did not hold the promise of the "better tomorrow"he had always hoped for and so began to search his past for answers. It was in that past that he finally found the happiness and comfort he had always sought.

For too long he had allowed the lies and the abuse he suffered at the hands of his "caretakers"define his past. Now, he focuses on the positive things he did experience throughout his life, and in A Better Yesterday: Life After Abuse,he shares those stories'"stories of the kind people, loving animals, and heart-warming events that comforted him even in the darkest times, shaping him into the caring person he is today.

A Better Yesterday takes you into a small boy's big, but confused heart; a young man's search for goodness; a prisoner's view of what is still good; a grown man's desire to be of service; and a grandfather's overflowing love for his little ones.

Synopsis:

After years of allowing the lies and abuse he suffered as a child define his past and cloud his future, Roger Dean Kiser author of The Whitehouse Boys: An American Tragedy decided to find a way to make sense of a childhood replete with verbal, physical, emotional, and sexual abuse before it was too late. In his new book A Better Tomorrow, Kiser revisits his past and makes a conscious choice to focus on the kindness and happiness he experienced throughout his life.

Sharing his heartfelt memories of kind people, loving animals, and comforting events, Kiser affirms the benevolence of the human spirit and demonstrates the healing capacity that random acts of compassion can have on a child. A Better Yesterday reveals the precious, defining moments that molded Kiser into a caring, loving person despite the experiences of a childhood cloaked in misery.
