Cover Reveal! Walking Away From Hate – Jeanette and Lauren Manning…

“I didn’t set out to raise a skinhead. It just happened.” ~ Walking Away from Hate – Our Journey Through Extremism by Jeanette & Lauren Manning

From the very first line of the introduction to this biographical look into a fall into and out of extremism, the reader understands that this is a frank and no holds barred important book.

I’m reading WALKING AWAY FROM HATE at the moment, and it has its hold on me! From the complete and unerring honesty of the narrative, to the way it switches back and forth from the daughter’s point of view to the mother’s…it’s so raw. I’m hooked. This is as much a story of a mother’s strength of perseverance and love as it is a story of a downward slide into hate and extremism. I’m looking forward to finding out how Lauren made that hard climb back up out of extremism and back into the arms of her persistent mother Jeanette. You’ll want to pick up this book when it releases. It’s a staggering and important read.

Today, I’m sharing the cover for WALKING AWAY FROM HATE – OUR JOURNEY THROUGH EXTREMISM. And I think it’s an absolutely gorgeous cover, too. Perfect!

As posted previously, here’s the book’s summary:

RELEASE DATE: May 15th, 2021

SUMMARY

As a troubled teen, Lauren Manning sought refuge online in the angry world of black metal music. When she met a recruiter who offered her the acceptance she craved, the doctrine of white supremacy supplanted the values of her middle-class upbringing, and Lauren traded suburbia for a life of violence and criminality on the streets of Toronto. Told from the perspective of both mother and daughter, Walking Away from Hate chronicles Lauren’s descent into extremism, her life within the movement and her ultimate reconnection with the family she once denounced and the mother who refused to give up on her.
