In a riveting and extremely compelling memoir by author Tracey Brame, Undeterred: KKK Target, KKK Witness, readers will find a story that will grip them completely from the very first pages and won't let them go all the way until the very end! Follow author Brame's story as she details her very sad and terrible experiences with racism, first as a young female cadet at the prestigious United States Military Academy at West Point, and then as an up and coming young professional in her home state of Indiana. She was first viciously physically attacked by another cadet after she expressed an interest in entering politics, after which she suffered from a rare and difficult form of dissociative amnesia, preventing her from remembering the attack, as well as post traumatic stress disorder. After her time in the military, she was harassed and targeted by the KKK after wanting to enter the political field in Indiana. This woman's story is one that you will find horrifying on many levels, but at every turn, you will hope that Tracey Brame succeeds. Will she prevail? Read this wonderful memoir to find out.
I so enjoyed Undeterred. I found that author Tracey Brame did a fantastic job in writing her difficult true life story with realism and emotion, enough to truly engage her readers and make them care about her situation. If that isn't a hallmark of a great author, I'm not sure what is. This book is one that will keep you up late into the night reading, so I advise that you read it on a day when you can get up late the next day! The only other piece of advice I have to give to readers is to be sure you read this book, and sooner rather than later!
