Alida Gets Life – an engaging story of family patterns
"Alida Gets Life" allows Alida to have a voice and be known to as many people as possible, providing her healing and giving her life meaning. You will find out why this is so important as the story unfolds.
Sophie’s aunt Bea is the only living family member who has met Alida and answers many of Sophie’s questions in Part 1 - up to Ch 20. The reality of Alida’s trauma is so unjust, extreme and prolonged, that even Bea struggles to believe that her experiences with her mother-in-law’s family were real.
The story illustrates how devastating inter-generational trauma’s impact is upon families. Skeletons come to life as Sophie observes five generations of Alida’s family and their behaviour patterns, allowing her (and us) to learn a lot about how us how inter-generational trauma ripples through families.
Part 2 will further explore family patterns and issues surrounding Alida's detainment and the healing influences on her family.
