Following a recent trend in publishing, Doris Coldewey, who works in the East Central Independent School District, has published an e-book, For My Sisters.

It is the tale, the author said, of three little girls who overcome being verbally and physically abused by their stepmother and father after their real mother dies at an early age.

“... the sisters go from being cherished to being beaten and battered physically and mentally,” she told the Wilson County News. “This is a story about three little girls who triumphed against all odds ... The story begins in 1945 and ends in 1968. I literally wrote this book ‘for my sisters.’ The truth had to be told.”

Coldewey said the book is also for her “... brothers and sisters from the ’50s and ’60s, hoping they, too, will find their voice and tell their story. In those days, no one intervened with one’s family, but our neighbors had to hear the screams coming from our house.”

Doris and her husband, Calvin, are lifelong residents of the area and have lived in Wilson County for 20 years.

For My Sisters is available at this time as an e-book for $7.99 at Smashwords.com. Coldewey hopes to have it in paperback soon.
