Angel Just Rights tells of a plethora of mortifyingly unhealthy, demoralising, ritualistic and compelling behaviours that manifest deeply in a fragile life so touched by the world around her. This is an exclusive account, based on the remarkable and true story of Rebecca Parker also known as Micci, the Protagonist and Author. Laugh, Shout, Cry, as we are finally invited to join this incredible quest for freedom.

Delving into issues relating to everyday living such as dealing with strict family values, loyalty and devotion, the author intermittently riddles with her reader in efforts to gain the yearned for rationality and reassurance she so desperately seeks. During chaotic deciphering, Parker encounters incongruence in evaluations as, how can implicitly pure intentions living life selflessly protecting those you love, precipitate such devastating results. Parker gradually learns how coping in silence can cruelly fester, hastening devastating consequences, severe eating disorders Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia, post-traumatic stresses and flash backs, self harm and suicidal desires, problems with extreme over exercise and increasing obsessions, rituals, distorted beliefs leading to incredibly debilitating episodes of low self esteem, depression, hospitalisations, sectioning under the Mental Health Act and associated inequitable treatments enforced.

Triggers responsible for the evolution of the book, realisation into the debilitating extent at which broken down channels of communication, mixed with life experiences and ingrained individualistic personality traits, have been allowed in full strength and power to render one so weak, are explained by the author in her beginning Preface. The reader goes on to learn about the story of a child, whose voice is slowly lost to a world of secrets and confusion. The story swiftly unravels before the very eyes and ears of the reader. Perplexed at how her life is now, the author endeavours to perfect a sense of how it all went so terribly wrong and, defying all conceivable odds upon discharge from hospitals, this notoriously resistant patient astonishes medical teams by managing to engender for herself a safety within the four walls of an intense daily treatment programme she is required to attend. Parker adeptly juxtaposes this renewing trust, beginning in the routine world of Day Care program, with the writing of her first volume of books. Conclusively, a powerful and surreal irony is brutally reinforced, thus bringing her first volume of books to a fulfilling and thought provoking end.

Informative, entertaining, bitterly heart rendering to the general reader, a silent sufferers solace, captivating and enlightening to friends, families and health professionals alike, a mindful motivator for all. This book is extremely vivid, striking, and exceptionally astute, a wholly enchanting and satisfying read, leaving you aching endearingly for more.

About the Author

REBECCA PARKER was born in Grenada, England in 1980. After judiciously burying a chain of perplexing life events experienced during childhood, Parker befell ill fated focus to devastating emotional insurgences intercepting her early adult life with unforgiving fetid foray.

Sharing this unique collection of books, originally cathartic in aim, enables the author Rebecca Parker to offer even a strand of hope to any individual similarly searching for their own only voice that is allowed, to offer even a slice of solace to those continuing to hurt silently and alone and the disclosure of her story also aims to offer those enduring the last few years of this particular stretch of illness by her side, that is to say, its aim is also to offer her Dearly Beloved Family, excessively long awaited answers and an opportunity to finally embark upon healing.

Reading and writing have always excited this new author, previous works winning recognition and Prizes for both short stories and poetry. But with her intense fears come overwhelming uncertainty, unconscious delaying and obstructive avoidance. Angel Just Rights is honest, feisty, and delves unsparingly into a plethora of extreme matters concerning her own daily living, that is both pre and post diagnosis of mental illness.

This voice enables Parker to do so, in using the safest, alas only means remaining.

Today, while continuing to battle the chaotic insurrections of mental illnesses, Parker lives and works in London where she dedicates her life to offering others just a sap of courage similar to that which has so fortunately been evoked in her own soul and thus reflected in the production of her first volume of books, Angel Just Rights. An all encompassing key to potential freedom, here arrives, the story of her life.

  1. Anorexia Recovery (verified owner)

    PREFACE & INTRODUCTION offer excellent preparation for grasping the major contents and themes of this book (discussed in SECRETS OUT, WHO AM I, and THE BIGGER PICTURE). More-over, upon approaching CONCLUSIONS & EPILOGUE, breaking waves of emotion overwhelm as the story elegantly reaches full-circle. This IS a truly enchanting, beautifully rounded read offering deep insight and help. Well done Parker, a definite re-read & awaiting your sequel!

    I have just finished reading this book that a charity directed me to. Really have to recommend it, especially the Conclusions, which, by the time the whole book has been read, is SO uplifting, motivational, insightful, inspirational. This is something that I will definitely refer to
    when I am feeling alone and struggling and I intend to keep it with me at all times and refer to it to give me strength. I think it can really give people a hope and boost something inside of them, as it did with me. I know my family would benefit from reading such a story. My heart goes out, but the world needs to hear this.

    I have read on this author’s website (given in the book) that there is a small bag / t-shirt / pen / key-ring / hoodie to show support and spread the words to those it needs to reach. If only I had read this when I was in a bad place! I KNOW ON SOME REALLY BAD DAYS I’VE ALMOST COMMITTED SUICIDE, LITTLE THINGS LIKE THIS CAN REALLY HELP IN THOSE TIMES. NOW I CARRY IT NEAR ME, JUST IN CASE 🙂
