5.0 out of 5 stars An awe inspiring book, 8 Feb. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: After Silence (Paperback)
This book is mind-blowing! Nancy Venables Raine writes about her rape and the affect that it had, and continues to have on her life. She writes with feeling and with conviction. She helps you to understand what someone who has been raped goes through. She is clear when she is writing about the worst thing that could happen to someone.
The book has statistics in that will frighten and astound you. But not too many that you will be put off reading more. It will make you realise that this henious crime is committed far more often than is realised. It will make you realise that the aftermath continues for a long, long time. Whilst she has learned to live with what happened to her, she does not make anyone who has experienced the same who is reading the book feel that they are wrong in feeling whatever they are feeling. It is an encouragement and almost a comfort.
I bought this book to "help" me after I was raped. She made me feel that whilst my experiences were different to hers, some of the reactions are similar and just as devastating. I lent this book to friends to assist them in understanding what had happened to me and how I felt. It also blew their minds away.
I would ask that anyone who reads this book thinks about the crime and to ensure that you are NEVER the "woman with the Amber necklace".
