5.0 out of 5 stars Truly an uplifting and positive book, 24 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: After Silence: Rape and my Journey Back (Paperback)
Truly an uplifting and positive book, a fantastic achievement by Nancy Venable Raine. The way that she talks about how she overcame the trauma of rape, truly enables people who have also suffered this form of assault to get their lives back. Her insights into the emotional fall-out of rape victims rings very true, in a sensitive way. But, not only does she discuss the way rape victims react to their experience, she also deals with how others may react to someone they know being raped, (the chapter The Woman in the Amber Necklace demonstrates this in quite a stark way, resulting in making the reader consider how they would react in a similar situation). Therefore this book is not only for victims of rape, but also those who may be a relative of a rape victim, or for someone who wishes to learn how to be more understanding of rape victims. I highly reccomend this book. It addresses many issues and makes you consider your own prejudices.
