As an adult who was sexually abused at the hands of a foster father who was also a very well known minister~ I resonated with every word that Susan wrote. For the first time I felt someone put into words what I have not been able to do and gave me a voice. I wept because it is my story and it is a book that speaks my truth. The sexual abuse weaved its shame and sometimes paralyzingly fear into every fiber of my being. It is my story but it does not have to define me. Heart2Heart Hope flowing~

I appreciate the author's courage, experience and insight. I did feel that the chapters kind of dropped off without the resolution I was looking for. Still, I'm glad I read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donna's Review March 8, 2013
By Donna
Format:Kindle Edition
Susan Jacobi speaks to the child inside of the survivor of childhood sexual abuse. This is so important to make that child aware that it is not their fault. They were not responsible for what was going on. Yes, children are victimized but the adult can choose to not be a "Victim" and become a "Survivor". Susan Jacobi states this fact clearly and inspires hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets to the Heart of Child Abuse February 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Susan Jacobi speaks in plain and honest language how child abuse affects its victims all through their life. As someone who was sexually abused in childhood it has marred my life in so many ways. Like Susan I sought professional help in my 40's and alternative therapies in my 50's that finally broke the flashbacks and blocks it was for me in my relationships. Susan's voice to my heart and I felt her struggles yet her book offered hope in releasing the bonds that child abuse can hold on us throughout life. This is a small book with a big hopeful message that I read completely in one sitting on a long plane trip. I recommend this heart filled book to anyone who has suffered some form of child abuse.
