NOBLESVILLE, Ind., Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Morgan James’ new release, Found: Triumph Over Fear With Grace and Gratitude: The Michelle Corrao Story by Michelle Corrao (with Emily Sutherland), is a woman’s journey from abduction to advocacy. Michelle Corrao never aspired to be on the evening news, but her abduction was the final crime in a string of assaults on women in Central Indiana in 1996.
Michelle Corrao shares the details of her abduction and rescue in Found as a lifeline for other trauma survivors to seek help, find hope and, ultimately, heal. A confident, professional woman violently assaulted and hidden in the trunk of her own car, Michelle was found by an off-duty police officer and given a second chance at life. More than twenty years after her assault, Michelle Corrao shares her story in Found, a gripping autobiography detailing her unexpected journey from what she considered to be the worst moments of her life to moments of profound growth and healing.
Throughout the chapters of Found, Michelle Corrao documents the raw, vulnerable details of her experience as a source of hope for other survivors, reminding them that they are not alone. With themes of resilience, self-reliance, and faith, Corrao hopes that her story will become a compelling resource for first responders, trauma counselors, and survivors. Her compassion, gratitude, and empathy light the way for all who want to make the world a safer, kinder place.
