About Courtney:

Courtney Frey is an approaching 40 young years mother of three amazing teenagers and lives in rural Iowa.  She has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor’s in Human and Health Services.  Courtney is also the author of “One Birth mother’s Emotional Truth on Healing, Recovery and Success” (Adoption Press, 2002) and is a national speaker on women’s issues.  She has published hundreds of articles for Adoption Media LLC, and currently operates a personal inspiration blog as well as http://www.itsneverinvain.com for her upcoming novel, Restitution.  Courtney is a speaker for RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network) and can booked for engagements through the Contact link on this site.  Her Creative Team is compromised of Jen Kelchner of http://www.jenkelchner.com and Jim Genet CEO of http://www.syngii.com.Courtney is a huge literary addict and is a fan of Edgar Allen Poe, Hemingway, and Charlotte Gilmore Perkins.  She even named her little 8 year old Maltese, Hemingway and she proudly sports a tattoo of a large Raven on her back.  Her literary passions stem from her relationship with her father, which is revealed in her novel.  One of her favorite quotes is from Poe, “I became insane with long intervals of horrible sanity.”  She wears high heels to sporting events, likes Hemingway Martini’s, and eats sushi any chance she can get.


Tess never screamed. Not out-loud. Not when she was five years old, abused at the hands of a man she called Pastor; and not through the years she was molested by her Uncle. Silence.Shame. Did she cause these bad things to happen?  Was she really, like the Pastor had said, “A bad girl who made bad things happen …?”  Would she ever be worthy of love?

“I still love him,” Rebecca whispered through a bleeding crack in her lip as Tess held her close on the bare mattress in her tiny bedroom.  Her father had beaten her; again.  How can a daughter still want to be loved by a man who is supposed to protect her?  The hate would come soon after he killed her mother, leaving her trying to survive a string of Foster Homes.  But could she do what the courts were asking, years later, and care for him as he died?  Forgiveness never means excusing.

Tess ran her hand over the white hospital blanket, trying not to cry for her best friend, Amy, who comforted her, “I won’t walk again, but I’ll find a way to live.” The accident had left her paralyzed.  We were 16. And we were mothers.

Restitution will lead you into the valley of darkness, through the horrors of child-hood sexual abuse, domestic violence, the loss of a child through adoption, abortion, paralysis, and life altering events that we don’t talk about; enough.  But it does something more than that.

Tess, Rebecca and Amy don’t just survive. They win. It is a story of three lives, not unlike your own, that will empower you to reach back into the shadows of your own past and reclaim the little girl left behind.
