From Darkness, I See the Light

By: Margaret M. Breland

About the Book

There is hope for becoming a survivor of abuse. Whether your abuse occurred in Hollywood, on a US gymnastics or swimming team, or within your own family home, you can secure strategies to help you move forward in your life.

                A true and profoundly personal story, The Legacy - From Darkness, I See the Light provides proof of this, chronicling one woman’s recovery from the abuse of her past and hope for the future.


About the Author

Margaret M. Breland retired as a public school teacher in May 2017, but has never lost her love for counseling, a field of study she pursued for 25 years after obtaining a Masters degree in Education. As the author witnessed the effects of the Me Too Movement, she could not ignore the blatant need to pursue the publication of this book as she believes her book will help the women and men who have experienced sexual abuse.
