About The Ties that Bind Me by Karen Allen:
Kim Singleton was born into a family with more problems than the average. One of six siblings, she experienced unthinkable acts of abuse at the hands of the people closest to her. No, there was nothing normal about her childhood. No dollhouses and games of hide and seek. Instead she learned quickly how "grown-ups" had fun, having her first homosexual encounter at age 6.
Afflicted by what Kim called her, “generational curse,” she dove head first into a life of danger, lust, fast money and fast women. Kim was living life on the edge until one Christmas when GOD delivers her a gift that would change her outlook on life forever. Having been raised in the Word, Kim knew that she had to change her life and like most fallen souls returned to her roots, the church.
Free from the demons that ruled her life and back in the Word, Kim is finally back on the right track. Looking for honest work and faithfully attending church she is surprised to see the same demons that bound her before lurking in the one place she felt safe ... her church.
