The first time Allie Brazas was sexually assaulted, she was seventeen. Three years later, after joining the Navy, she became the victim of sexual abuse at the hands of her acting Command Master Chief. Life seemed to be turning around for Allie when she got married to an active duty K9 handler. Two months later, he was killed in action in Afghanistan and came home to Allie in a flag-draped box. The perfect life Allie had envisioned was forever altered.
Alone, confused, and overwhelmed with grief, Allie wasn't sure if she'd ever escape the hole that life kept pushing her into. It wasn't until she embraced her journey—all the heartbreak and horror she'd endured—that Allie was able to climb out of that hole.
In Flawed and (Still) Worthy, Allie shares how she learned to use her challenges to her advantage and transform victimhood into empowerment. No matter what hole you're in, Allie's story will show you how to pick yourself up and build a beautiful life for yourself.
