Family Violence Adviser Breaks Silence 24 Years After Plot to Have Husband Killed
May 27, 1987, the Times Picayune of New Orleans carried this front-page headline: Family Violence Adviser is Held in Plot to Have Husband Killed. Now, more than 24 years after the events that garnered national attention, she is breaking her silence.
How could such a woman fall from this nationally-recognized position of prestige to that of a violent criminal in just three months? There had to be more to this tale than met the eye—but Carolyn Huebner, who had always been good for a terrific quote, wasn’t talking. Now, more than 20 years after the events that had once garnered national attention, she is breaking her silence. With brutal honesty and written in narrative form by the woman who walked beside her as both close friend and colleague during much of her journey, Falling Through Ice, brings us directly into Carolyn’s courageous struggle to come to grips with the secrets in her past—and the disastrous effects those secrets had on her life.
Falling Through Ice demonstrates the heights to which the human spirit can soar as it seeks to emerge from darkness into light, but it never offers ‘the abuse excuse’ as justification for her criminal acts. Indeed, as terrifying and lonely as it was, Carolyn Huebner’s incarceration saved her life and gave her the opportunity to discover the only lost child she had been afraid to find: The child within herself.
Crossover Publications is pleased to announce the February 25th, 2011 release of this gripping and telling true story, FALLING THROUGH ICE.
Helen Cook of PrimeStar Publicity & Public Relations said, "This book is so well written that I had to keep reminding myself that it isn’t fiction. This true and gripping story is filled with terror, heartbreak and mental anguish. From the depths of despair as a 6-year-old to the triumph over the evil in her life as an adult—Carolyn Huebner Rankin lays her life out for the world to see. Falling Through Ice tells a significant story of God’s healing and restoration. It also illustrates that no matter how broken, or dirty, or unlovable you may feel you are—God can take all that away."
Michelle Sutton, social worker and author of more than a dozen novels said, "Falling through Ice is a gripping narrative non-fiction that will impact everyone who reads it. The writing is flawless, and based on my twenty years of experience in child welfare, I can promise that the authors’ narrative rings true. They don’t use the past to make excuses but to illustrate how someone can fall to such a low place, bringing the reader through the valley and showing how God used everything that happened for the greater good. Rather than feeling depressed when I finished reading this gut-wrenchingly honest book, I felt inspired. Falling through Ice has the potential to heal broken hearts and truly change lives."
