This book goes beyond what is acceptable, what is "nice."This book is not about forgiveness, not about "just forgive your perpetrator and life will fall into place."But if forgiveness works for you, then stop right here.Put this book down and spare yourself a glimpse of hell.

You see, this book goes deep into the gut.It's raw, crude and bloody.It's all about the things we don't talk about in polite society.After all, no one wants to believe that "these things happen," let alone read about them.

But, "these things," happened to me.They have happened, are happening, and will continue to happen to women, children, and babies around the world, until we open our eyes to the rampant sexual abuse of children in our society and until we, the abused, unite-refusing to be quiet any longer, spilling our guts, unleashing our rage, and reclaiming our power.

That's what this book is about.It chronicles my struggle to reclaim what was stolen from me-the power that was rightfully mine.
