Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Finding Angela Shelton is a memoir of courage, survival and faith. It is the journey of a young woman who discovers herself in the stories of other women who share her same name and coincidentally share experiences of violence and abuse that plagued her own childhood. Through her physical journey across the country she is thrust into her own emotional journey. She embraces each woman she meets, is strengthened by their connections, confronts the father that molested her, and ultimately finds faith, divine purpose, and wholeness.

Synopsis:

Actress and Hollywood screenwriter Angela Shelton shares her compelling story and alarming discovery of violence and abuse while surveying women who happen to share her name throughout America.

About the Author

Angela Shelton is an award-winning actress and filmmaker. She made her directorial debut with her documentary Searching for Angela Shelton in which she drove around the country meeting other women named Angela Shelton. She found that 70 percent had been victims of sexual assault or domestic violence. This surprising journey led Angela to confront her own abusive past. The multi-award winning documentary has started a grassroots movement of survivors and humanitarian organizations around the world to expose the extent of abuse suffered by American women. Angela received a certificate of appreciation from the United States Justice Department for her work and dedication on behalf of America's crime victims. She was also presented the Voice of Courage award from Darkness to Light, an organization with the goal of ending childhood sexual abuse. And she received the Award for Distinguished Service and Excellence in Film Media from The Leadership Council for Child Abuse and Interpersonal Violence and the Family Violence and Sexual Assault Institute in 2005. Angela has appeared on Oprah and 48 Hours Investigates. An exclusive version of her documentary, Searching for Angela Shelton aired on Lifetime TV in April 2006. In addition, Angela stars as the Safe Side Super Chick superhero who teaches children how to be safe in the Safe Side video series created by Baby Einstein creator Julie Clark and America's Most Wanted creator, John Walsh. She won a regional Emmy for her performance in this video series in 2005.

Breathtaking and poignant! This is the story of a woman who was lost inside finding herself and her mission during the course of one arduous yet uplifting spiritual odyssey that came to be the documentary "Searching For Angela Shelton". I was swept along on the journey by Angela's witty voice and compassion as she met other women across America sharing her name. Learning some of their stories while watching Angela follow her destiny and grow from an insecure victim into a survivor, a shining advocate against abuse, was tremendously inspiring. I wanted to be there too. Her spirit is infectious -- her story, a miracle.

Not every true story has a happy ending. This one does, and chronicles the start of an even more amazing feat: raising awareness for an abuse epidemic that is rapidly increasing; helping other victims to break the silence and heal; rallying an army of advocates to fight against abuse. Angela is doing all this and more. "Finding Angela Shelton" is how her movement began. I highly recommend that everyone read the book at some point in their lives. It will be one you never forget.
