This book is tremendous value . It is succint and direct , showing both the victim and their nearest and dearest how each can feel . The different stages of rape - both immediate aftermath and recovery are broken down in easily understood segments . My partner is now starting a counselling process after we read the book together.That is an amazing result as she has been hiding her feelings and barring any form of intimacy for 9 years .
Her family thought they were doing the right thing in not discussing situation with her at all. She now wishes she had read this book many years ago.
