From Amazon Reviews...

Her courage to continue striving and refusing to let her childhood sexual abuse steal her life is contagious. Her life story speaks with such human depth and vulnerability, to expose the abuse, to identify the lies, to experience tremendous fear and deep pain, yet seek to move forward anyway. I felt she was offering me that mixture of courage and reality so I could deposit a piece of it into my own heart, find my voice, and boldly live my path forward.

In summary, anyone who desires to get an understanding of the realities of childhood sexual abuse and how it continues to affect a person into adulthood should read this book, even if you're nervous. Don't let childhood sexual abuse steal your life. If that's not your background, this book will enable you to develop compassion and empathy for the person that might be sitting right next to you.
