Springfield, MA -- How amazing is it for a young girl to suffer horrid abuse at the hands of a mentally ill mother, then grow up to tell people “Whatever life gives you, just Embrace the Journey”!  This is the kind of strength and positivity that make Lisa Zarcone a respected speaker, state representative for the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), widely-read memoirist, and social media favorite

Lisa published her book The Unspoken Truth in late 2016. The book is available through all major online retailers and showcased in bookstores and libraries close to her Massachusetts home. It is Lisa Zarcone’s personal and raw story, told uniquely through her young voice, as seen through her disbelieving eyes. It is the burning account she had to write—as part of her own ongoing healing, and so others who suffered through such bizarre events would know they are not alone -- and they can rise above it.

Raising awareness is very important to Lisa. She grew up at a time she refers to as the silent era, when mental illness and child abuse existed, but no one spoke of them. They were rarely identified nor reported by school officials. By telling her story, and hopefully getting the book into the hands of educators, counselors and colleges with psychiatric programs, she hopes to spread the word and extend its influence. Lisa has also raised awareness as a member of NAASCA, and as a speaker and blogger.  She connects with others who have suffered similar tragedies, bonds with them, and passes out daily inspirations.
