Letting Go
Creating an Exceptional Life After Leaving Jehovah's Witnesses
by Brenda Peterson

Born into the contained and exacting world of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Brenda Peterson was shaped by a rigorous doctrine, worldview, and lifestyle that she never questioned—until she found herself trapped in an abusive marriage that shook the very foundations of who she thought she was, what she thought she wanted, and what she had always held on to as Truth. Peterson’s candid and contemplative memoir captures the journey of innocence, angst, struggle, heartbreak, and ultimate revelation that led one woman to leave everything she had ever known to discover a life she had never thought possible. Letting Go is a balm for anyone who has ever felt locked in a relationship, religion, or lifestyle that was toxic to one’s soul—and who craves the courage, self-discovery, and empowerment that can ultimately lead one to freedom, fulfillment, and joy.
