Kara Tollman's Her Silent Tears, is a sobering read. It lifts the dark curtain up on what is happening all too often, and the dark recesses of an abused child's mind, living in an adult body for the memories linger and resurface, a life of PTSD, at the hands of those we should trust, those who are lives are invested to care for and keep us safe. Maggie's childhood was violently ripped away by a sickness that is incomprehensible, of a demented broken soul that torments and prays on his own child, a young girl, for sexual gratification, depriving his child, his baby of ever coming to know what it is have intimacy with a man in a loving safe way, one of our strongest and most fundamental human needs violated, the need to be touched is turned into something vulgar and violent. What is a child left with but to somehow pick up the shattered pieces and learn somehow to cope, and Maggie does, but she can't stop the triggers that set the cellular memory in motion, reliving
the torment. That this is based on a true story makes it all the more a compelling read, to open our eyes, to be on the lookout, as protector to those innocents that weren't lucky enough to have parents to do this for them. For the child, that now lives in a woman's body, it is my hope that peace and safety have been found in her life, and that the joy, the miracle of being alive, is no longer clouded by this horrible traumatic past. For the child, that continues to live in all of us, with needs to be loved, to be touched, to belong, to trust, this is a compelling read to increase awareness of too many children's dark secrets. This one was brave enough to share her story with the author. A must read.
