Description

“The Return Trip is a blessed blueprint for anyone seeking freedom from the shackles of shame, guilt, and trauma. Maya Golden’s vulnerability, candor, and powerful storytelling shook me to my core. Her story is inspirational in the deepest, rawest sense of the word—zero platitudes and sentimentality, 100 percent real and transformative. A beautiful gift to survivors and to those suffering in silence.” Deesha Philyaw, author of The Secret Lives of Church Ladies

At age thirty, Maya Golden was living a charmed life. She was an award-winning sports reporter, a loyal wife, and a new mom. Privately, she was battling addiction, perfectionism, dissociation disorders, and rage due to sexual abuse endured at the hands of her cousin and many other predators.

But Maya wants to change. So, on a family road trip back to her Texas hometown, she is ready to put an end to the secrets that threaten her marriage and her career. Three separate moments of divine intervention ultimately saved Maya’s life.

From a suicide plan to the treatment facility to launching a nonprofit organization—Maya’s story chronicles and dissects her journey to find purpose out of the trauma.
