Here are just some of the things people say about Mind Trap:
This story begins with an impact, which demolishes the fantasy of the character’s harmonious home life. There is a noteworthy element to this book, which becomes evident in the telling of the story. It is the gifted accomplishment of the MIND TRAP, which walks the reader through the main character’s hellish crisis, all the while holding onto a faith in a loving God that carries her to the fascinating and enlightened ending" Martha G Pearson -writer, teacher, and former president of NW Indiana Writer’s Association.
I was captivated by this story. MIND TRAP is a gripping picture of what anger can do. So many of us have hidden pasts, buried trauma, unbearable hurt, dormant until something triggers an emotional upheaval that is beyond our control. Debra’s story grabbed me and I kept reading, Ms. Derksen has written a powerful story Peggy Phifer, editor Wordsmith
