How Jane woke up to recovered memories of childhood abuse, how therapy and creative work led her to heal. “A powerful and sensitive portrayal, full of insight into Jane’s confusion as well as her family’s bewildering dynamics… inspiring, important, shows that healing and joy are possible after childhood abuse.” —Marilyn Van Derbur, author, Miss America By Day
"People don’t make up things like that for fun."
That’s what Jane’s therapist tells her when Jane reports fragmentary memories from her childhood that hint at sexual abuse. A busy, successful scientist, Jane at first fights the implications, but finally has to admit that something indeed happened. With help from a gifted therapist as well as creative arts, Jane taps into her own aliveness and reconciles with both her parents’ love and their betrayal.
This deeply personal memoir invites the reader behind the closed doors of the therapist’s office and into the author’s journal and her very body. Jane’s tender story shows how we can use the challenges of painful childhood traumas to transform our lives.
