About the Book
In the grip of her husband’s illicit fantasies,
a young woman fights to find her voice.
Lorrine is a good wife. She’s devoted to her kids, works tirelessly, and after two failed marriages, is determined to make this one work.
But at what cost?
Her husband, Leon, is part of a once hidden practice now sweeping America: Cuckolds are voyeurs who watch their wives make love to strangers. He calls it sexual liberation, but as Lorrine slips on her new pink patent stilettos and stands before the hotel mirror, she barely recognizes the hollow-eyed woman staring back at her.
Caught between her husband’s controlling behavior and a legacy of adolescent abuse, Lorrine stands on a dangerous precipice. She’s survived so much: suicidal depression, becoming a teen mom, and single parenthood. Now she must either destroy the family she’s created, or risk sinking into a void she might never emerge from. But the greatest challenge will be finding the courage to do the unthinkable, and truly love herself.
Freeing Your Heart for Love is a raw, unflinching, memoir about one woman’s journey from abuse to actualization, and the art of finding lasting love and happiness. It’s a testament to the power of positive thinking, spirituality, and the healing practice of Nichiren Buddhism.
“Every woman that finally figured out her worth,
has picked up her suitcases of pride and boarded a flight
to freedom, which landed in the valley of change.”
- Shannon L. Alder
About the Author
Lorrine Patterson was born in Guam but never got to experience that version of island life. Her family moved to Oahu, Hawaii when she was only a few months old and they stayed there until Lorrine turned 12. After watching her parents divorce, she moved to California with her mother. These experiences during her formative years helped create a lasting sense of wonder combined with curiosity for the world around her.
Lorrine earned her BS in Business Management and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. She has worked in the hotel industry, property management, and facilities management and specializes in customer service. Passionate about all she does, Lorrine stewed over the idea of writing a book for the better part of a decade. It wasn’t until the realities of pandemic life in 2020 took hold that she decided it was finally time to put pen to paper. Through the suffering and troubling times Lorrine finally discovered her true passion and purpose in life, bringing some goodness to a world in need.
Her first book, Freeing Your Heart For Love is a memoir. Lorrine is a simple woman who believes everything happens for a reason and, even if we aren’t meant to understand why, we are all guided to the right place at the right time. Armed with this theory, she approaches each new day with a contagious enthusiasm.
About the Author

"As with traumatic and abusive childhoods, which so often beget adult relationship abuse, Lorrine sought to find love through the men in her life. Her fear of loneliness kept drawing her to the familiar feeling of abuse so embodied from her childhood, therefore her attraction to abusive men.
