Publisher: Profounder Intelligence
The book “Trapped in our shadows” by Victorine Mbong Shu, is scheduled to be launched in Skoobs Bookshop in Monte Casino on the 6th of July 2017, you are invited! In her book, Mbong Shu speaks about the rampant act of copycat behaviour between two families that quickly turns into an abusive relationship. She urges everyone to be able to say NO TO ABUSE!
Mbong Shu speaks openly about the agony that two families went through for over 10 years, as a close friend exposes another to the pain of betrayal, unfulfilled love, abandonment, misguided parenting, and stolen identities. According to her, this friend’s continues duplication of a mother and her daughter’s lives has pushed them to feel like they are trapped in their own shadows.
Rachel the antagonist and Herodias the protagonist are real-life humans whose lives are likened to the original Bible characters that they are named after. In the book, Herodias repeatedly copies the things Rachel does, to the extent that she also started grooming her 7-year-old daughter, Salome to act and behave exactly like Rachel’s, then 9-year-old daughter, Josepha. Talking to the media, Victorine acknowledges that this book is in fact a story about herself and her 9-year-old daughter, the multi-talented multiple award-winning author of chapter books, ‘Smelly Cats, 2015’ and ‘Bob and the Snake, 2016.’
According to Victorine, a 7-year-old was groomed to lie to the world on a life event that is stolen from her Family. How do you claim to have been the maker of an event that you never lived? This 292 pages’ book reveals more details than questioning the lives of this duplicated family. In it, Victorine walks readers through the life that she and her then close friend lived through the following subtitles;
– ‘We didn’t know she was writing a book.’ Who did not know that who was writing a book?
– ‘Transition: from a friend to a curse.’ What exactly happened?
– ‘I write to inspire others.’ Who writes to inspire? Stacey Fru or …
