The Other Side of Fear: A Backpacker's Memoir (Paperback)
(This book cannot be returned.)
After surviving a kidnapping and violent sexual assault, academic and entrepreneur Jenni Reavis packed one suitcase and left everything behind to embark on a 3-year radical adventure backpacking through 6 countries, where she finished her master's degree abroad and found a hidden path that led to forgiveness, joy, hundreds of talks with strangers under foreign stars, and an erotic, romantic relationship with her own self, living the life of her happiest dreams.
Her background includes a long history of connecting with cultures, learning languages, and working as a volunteer interpreter/translator in her hometown Oklahoma City. Her own story of recovery, background in psychology, and graduate degree in Human Relations were the inspiration for this first book in the Unhidden Heroines book series, her memoir, "The Other Side of Fear: A Backpacker's Memoir." Her purpose going forward is to connect with others on a global level, engaging in topics about conquering fears and documenting stories about recovery and resilience wherever she travels.
