Roar: Primed for Peace; Self Heal Trauma for Health, Happiness & Harmony is a work of non-fiction focusing on the transformation of the self. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience owing to a non-explicit discussion of mature themes such as abuse recovery, and it was penned by author Sophia M. Elan. In this heartfelt work which seeks to bring harmony to others after undergoing some very difficult times in their lives, the author expresses their own journey with unresolved trauma, dangerous coping mechanisms, and some of the most profound lows a human being can ever experience. What results is an epiphany and a philosophy on life that finally achieves true healing, and can be of great inspiration to others.

Author Sophia M. Elan writes with a courageously raw narrative that speaks volumes as to how far she’s come on her own healing journey, for no non-fiction writer would be able to admit so much with such clarity and honesty if she still had excuses or resolutions to make. This adds much credence to the philosophies which she has developed for healing, which are clearly described and easy to relate to once you understand the core principles of self-love and self-respect. From here, Elan takes the narrative forward in a really logical step-by-step of building up one’s own limitless existence, letting go of traumas, and replacing them with independent love, conquest, and respect. Overall, Roar: Primed for Peace is a fierce work of emotionally resonant writing that is sure to uplift and help anyone who reads it.

Genuine words of honesty from a sincere & beautiful soul who has journeyed a path of healing, learning & wholeness to arrive at this point

This book was very raw, and heartfelt. My heart goes out to the writer who experienced so much trauma from a young age and overcame it with strength and courage. Bravo Sophia- may you find peace in your life now along with many blessings. I hope you are able to continue your journey and help all those who may have similar experiences.


A compelling emotional read. I particularly liked how uplifting this book is distinguished from some heavier books on the sensitive subject of abuse. This courageously vulnerable story provides unique insights into the trauma psyche as well as inspiration and practical guidance for healing. Spoiler alert - happy ending/“beginning” which is the way I love all stories to finish.
