When you feel overwhelmed, overworked, and not sure what to do … It’s time to dig deep and find your resiliency. But how?

Sally Allen was a statistic waiting to happen. Born into a toxic environment, forced into an arranged marriage, and being sexually abused left her in a chronic state of fear and insecurity. The worst part, however, was the bondage that she created for herself-in her mind. Allen had no idea the life she led wasn’t normal. She allowed her circumstances to define who she was. She was powerless.

Through a series of events, she found her power. She discovered how to be resilient. Through the power of resilience, she made the paradigm shift: from victim to survivor, from lack of self-esteem to boldness and bravery, from people-fearing to God-fearing. From her journey of finding resilience, Allen discovered a process, and that’s the backbone of what you will read. With it, you can find your own resilience and rewrite your story the way you want!

    This is Dr. Patricia Ross, Publisher for Hugo House publisher. First, it is vital to understand the difference between a bad review and a blatant, even vicious, attack of an author. We encourage all reviews. We do not tolerate the latter. However, in this case, we are choosing to keep this review up.

    Sally Allen’s book “Triumph Over Failure and Fear,” is a book about overcoming abuse with resilience. The book tells the ugly truth about being physically and mentally abused. It also tells a most beautiful narrative about how, by deciding to help others, the author is able to overcome that which she didn’t know or understand when she was young.

    Abusers seek to control those they abuse, no matter how many years may separate them or how many miles stand between them.

    Those who have been abused deserve a safe place from which to speak. Their stories deserve to be heard. Hugo House Publishers, Ltd stands by our authors.

    Own Your Future – A book that made me cry, but also gave hope. Sally’s journey to own her own future is an inspiration for us all. “Be vulnerable, be honest and it will set you free.” Worthy of a read.

    A raw and emotional page turner
    Triumph Over Fear and Failure was a real page-turner for me. I experienced so many emotions reading through the events of Sally’s life. Her courage to move forward, seek independence, & share her story is inspiring! I could not put it down! Reading what she endured and the strength she had to overcome so much allows us all to see we, too, can triumph over fear and failure.

    Rising Above with Resilience

    I’ve known Sally for several years now and have heard her story over the years in getting to know her. She’s been through a tremendous amount in life and she’s overcome so beautifully. She’s strong, tenacious, resilient and filled with love for others. Sally’s story encourages others who are experiencing difficulties in life to keep forging ahead and trust things get better and gently nudges her readers to believe they too can rise above the challenges set before them.

    Inspiring!!
    Sally has skillfully crafted her journey to resiliency! In chronicling her own many adversaries of her younger self, she weaves a beautiful courageous tale to the amazing woman she becomes. Her chapters blend her past into her present with vision of hope and attaining the best you can be. An amazing and remarkable triumph! I feel her transition, her shock and pain and applaud how none of this brought her down. Instead she built on this, admitted her failures but always knew and hoped for a better outcome and stepped up to do what was needed. She believed she could and she did.

    Powerful!
    This book shows the power of the human spirit to overcome evil and live triumphantly when given motivation and opportunity! An encouraging book for all!

    Not knowing the author, the story is fantastic! But if you are someone who knows the author you would know that this is a fictional story. I guess Hugo House Publisher did not vet your story because if they did you would not be publishing this story as a true story. Let’s see where to start: the bridge (donkey city bridge) is nowhere close to the path you take to school so how you get there is beyond anyone.
    Furthermore, the bridge is 15 feet or so above the water so what kind of rainfall was it? Was Guyana experiencing a monsoon? In Guyana everyone walked home together it’s not like parents went to pick their kids up all the kids walk home together in a group.
    Yes, your mother was an alcoholic, but you NEVER had to go to the rum shop to get her! There is no bar in Guyana at that time it was all called a rum shop, but you conveniently forgot that I am sure!
    Who are Uncle Sanjay and Aunt Sheela? In your life there are no such people so who are you talking about…as you made up this fictional story you are making up fictional characters? The one thing that I have to agree with is that Guyana is a 3rd world country with a lot of poor people. You mentioned drinking 50 pills you claim that the family was so poor where did they get the money to buy a bottle of pills? You went the next week to get another bottle of pills, yet they were poor?
    You drank 50 pills and all you did was sleep and was delusional. Fifty pills should have done a lot more than making you sleep and being delusional.
    The New Testament: NO ONE! NO ONE ever walks house to house to give those books out. The New Testament was given out at school to all students so that part of the book is beyond lies. Yes, YOU were a practicing Muslim, you fast, went to Mosque…but going to church and finding Jesus should be good for you now because with the lies you do
    need JESUS in your life!
    Did you say that you are not close to any of your brothers and sister?
    Really? Come on now tell the truth! You were close to all of your sisters in Guyana, and you still are with some of them. You had a good excellent relationship with all your brothers, their wives, and children. What would prompt you to make up such lies about your childhood? Is this the truth you want your son to know? Is something wrong with you? You probably need some mental help because why would someone tell such lies and try to pass it on as the truth?
    The marriage so you knew nothing about it (this is all so laughable) because did you remember dressing up going to work that day because you know J was going to be at the house when you come home so you wanted to look nice for him so that he accepts you? I am sure that you don’t remember that. Think about it if you didn’t marry J where would you be today? What would your life be like today? You would have still been in their 3rd world country correct? NO one forced you into that marriage you went into that marriage willingly.
    Being married I will not comment on that because I don’t know your married life, but I know that you were not faithful to J who were you having an affair with  who encourage you to leave J come on now tell the truth. Chris Allan, don’t you want to know whose name she was using? You should!
    You want to relate to abused children/girls you don’t have what it takes to relate to them because you did not experience it, let someone who actually experiences what you want to make up relate to them.
    Someone like you will NEVER know the pain abuse children feel because you have too many made-up stories stored in your head!
    The scrap you eat! It’s all so laughable! Did you ever consider writing jokes? I think you will do good at it because I find this book so laughable and funny at the same time. Didn’t you eat with the children of that family daily? Tell the truth, didn’t all of you sat
    at the table and eat together? The story in your head is saying no….how sad!
    Chores: you did all the chores in the house? Didn’t each one has a chore to do in that house before they go to school? Same with you? How did you manage to go to school and do all the chores at the same time?
    Writing this review is a complete waste of my time but I do think that your readers deserve to know the truth! For someone who lost their mother at 12, you surely lived the Cinderella! Chris Allan, get your wife mental health check!

    Courage to face our fears … wow !!!

    I was so excited when this work of art was delivered. What does it mean to take pain and print it out for the sole purpose of inspiring others to share their stories? A journey of healing and growth begins with that very first step and Sally Allen has offered us all a bit of motivation today !!! Stay courageous and thank you for making all of us stronger !!!

    Inspirational courage in “impossible” circumstances!

    I am honored to call Sally a friend. When I met Sally she warmed my heart with her effervescent personality, she was always present in the moment. Sally’s energy and positive attitude were infectious. She exuded joy. I had at that time NO IDEA the hell she had been through. As we got to know each other, we bonded in the love of God we were experiencing through the church and prison ministry we were involved with. Sally opened up and shared her story in an intimate get together with a couple close friends. We were pierced in our hearts, our minds, our beings by the pain and suffering our dear friend had experienced. It devastated us when we became aware of her life story. It was also amazing to see the beautiful woman who arose from the ashes of a life that could of destroyed her. When I read this book, the heartbreaking reality of her life was crushing all over again. But for that blessed missionary who delivered a saving message that she clung to. Her love of Jesus, her seeking, and yes her inner strength raised her out of the circumstances thrown at her and brought her to a triumphant place. I will always love her and feel I have gleaned many new lessons from reading her story.

    Incredibly Inspirational

    This author used her life experience to provide tangible and specific ways to overcome fear/tragedy/misfortune/etc.
    When another person may have given up, Sally Allen did not, and her resilience shines through this book.
    This is a great read for EVERYONE. Very emotional and VERY inspiring.

    Sally tells how to overcome life’s obstacles!

    Sally’s book is The Epitome of how one can overcome life’s obstacles. Despite victimization, despite the various situations that she had encountered throughout her life, she overcame those hurdles and kept pressing on. Although it’s a small book, don’t let the size fool you. I had to read this book in sections because of it’s intensity. Her sharing of deep, raw, dark thoughts that more than us would like to admit we have as well because of up bringing, culture of acceptances in constant defeat & deflated with no options. Sally finding a piece of hope, a life line to picking herself up and dusting herself off, time and time again. I found myself emotionally engrossed into her life’s roller-coaster as if I was there in the moment. At the end of this book, I was surprised to find myself teary eyed and filled with the resilience she spoke about. Definitely a must-read for those who are needing encouragement and looking to take control of their own lives and live a life of resiliency! I’m hoping there may be a sequel to follow. Thank you Sally for being resilient and sharing your story!

    Take the driver’s seat and embrace it all!

    A refreshing story depicting how one can overcome a life with victimization. Sally’s story is an impressive example of resiliency. Faced with a predisposed mountain to climb in life; one that may have otherwise continued if it weren’t for her strength and desire to break the pattern not only for her sake but for her son as well. A must read for those needing encouragement to be the driver in their own life!

    Empowering!

    Incredible story, could not put it down. Considering the difficulty of the author’s story. This book gave me an undescribable moment of explosive feelings all at the same time – sadness, anger, admiration, empowering, grateful and it made me laugh so much too. But more importantly, it gave me a warm energy and a valuable lesson of optimism. Resilience! Powerful and inspirational story.

  22. Clifford Wright
