This book is an excellent resource for anyone who has had or is having any experience at all with sexual abuse. If you are a victim yourself the author gives you excellent advice on how to begin the healing process. If you are someone who knows or cares about a victim this is an wonderful book to read to help you understand what your loved one is going through and how you can be there for them. I am an adult survivor of childhood abuse and I repressed my memories until just the past couple of years. The author explains how sometimes that can happen and how it can affect a person. I felt like she had been there, watching me grow up - or had peeked inside my head! I still struggle with self-esteem issues and have battled depression and suicidal thoughts most of my life. The author talks about all that in her book. I have had victory over all of that, thankfully! I did seek help from a counsellor and professional help is always a good idea.
If sexual abuse is a part of your life in any way, either directly in indirectly, I highly recommend you get this book! It will answer many questions you have and some that you may not have even thought of yet! At the end of the book the Dr. Lynn Daugherty lists many other resources to seek more information.
