Celibacy’s Child Book Synopsis  Celibacy’s Child by Lisa B. Overton is an emotionally rigged, true story of a women’s life starting from the first day she was brought into this world up to the present.  This moving story details her experience growing up as the child of a Roman Catholic priest and an ex-nun who entered into a 30+ year clandestine love affair.   The author, Lisa B. Overton tells the poignant story of her childhood and how she survived loneliness, shame and hypocrisy in her parents’ painful and secretive shadow and how she eventually forgave them both.  It was on her mother’s death bed that Lisa asked, “was Uncle my father?”  Uncle was how she addressed the priest who came to visit on Sundays.  She didn’t know Uncle was her father.   Celibacy’s Child tells the tale of a forbidden love and the child who was. According to the author Lisa B Overton, “I wrote this book, not with malice towards the Catholic church, but with the hope that one day Rome will remove celibacy from its doctrine. The stigma of shame that infected my mother’s life as well as my own came at a horrific price for both of us. I grew up loathing myself, as well as her for the false lives we both had to live. I felt no self-worth, had no friends. No schoolmates were allowed into our home.  We were always fearful that people would find out our secret.  The life I was forced to live drove me away from my mother, I grew to hate her. This made me a demon to live with. My teen years were rebellious, driving me further and further away from her. It has taken me years to heal and writing this book has helped me to love and understand her. I miss her so.”
