Mary is like a best friend I've never met, someone who generously shares her wisdom, tears, and stories of healing with each reader. Her transparency and her willingness to share openly from the most private parts of her pain have inspired me and encouraged me. I'm so grateful to have a long distance (albeit, unmet) mentor like Mary in my life and I look forward to passing along to others what I've learned from her.

I am recommending this book not just because it's written well--which it is. I am recommending it because the compassion and insight and vulnerability scattered throughout its pages have been excavated from places both deep and dark and have the power to change lives.

(Note: Getting to read the perspective of Mary's husband concerning her journey is a wonderful bonus as it powerfully illustrates the fact that sexual abuse never affects the victim only. Everyone who loves the victim is deeply impacted and most especially the spouse.)

As a member of a family heavily impacted by the effects of childhood sexual abuse, Mary's story and the impacts of her experiences on her life and emotional health are invaluable. Having read other excellent books on this subject, I rank Not Marked among the very best at offering hope and healing to all whether a victim or close family member.

I have read through this amazing book in the last two days personally and started reading it out loud with my housemate who has suffered so much from all kinds of abuse. I have read many books on this subject and find this one of the best as she openly shares her own journey and even has her husband sharing many helpful insights--this adds a lot to the book. She also shares resources she has found helpful on this long journey. Anyone who has personally had to deal with sexual abuse or who has loved ones or friends dealing with it will profit from reading this book which offers so much hope for true healing but not minimizing that it is often a long and difficult journey. Every pastor would benefit from reading it and could offer it for counseling help to any who may confide in him. Churches have not done well in helping people deal with the painful issue of sexual abuse. Thank you Mary, for sharing your story and many helps on the journey to wholeness.

Not Marked by Mary DeMuth is an excellent resource for the caring professionals who interact with those who have experienced sexual abuse and their loved ones. Mary provides practical steps and guidance in living life beyond the sexual abuse for both the victim and her loved ones (especially her spouse). Mary shares her own story in a vulnerable and supportive way along with God's Word, providing Bible verses that give hope and assurance of healing in the midst of pain. Mary's husband, Patrick, comments at the end of each chapter how he assisted Mary in working through her own pain and shares his own challenges as a spouse to a sexual abuse victim. Together, Mary and Patrick provide a resource that will bring healing and change to all who read this book.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I already have plans to share this book with clients and use as a study guide for therapy groups focusing on sexual abuse.

Format: Paperback
As a survivor, author, speaker & professional Life Coach, I found Mary's book "Not Marked" to be a breath of fresh air. Over the past twenty years, I have resourced many books on the subject of sexual abuse & healing, but I have to say Mary's book has become my "go to" resource. Not only for myself, but for my clients & groups as well. Mary's book needs to be in every Pastor, councelor, & group leaders library.

Never has there been a book with such raw vulnerability, such honest courage and truth. It's like Mary stepped into your very soul & saw where you were hurting and spoke directly to that pain. A voice from experience. A voice that not only says healing is possible, but that it is on-going. Mary shows us that the unseen stain we feel has marked us for other predators, can be removed through the truth of Christ and healing can begin. She shows us that healing is fluid ~ that it's not a once and you're done event, but that it moves & changes as we begin our journey. New healing comes when we begin to trust, to forgive & find new joy & hope in Christ. Mary places the emphasis on the restoration healing of God, who is the lifter of our head. The redeemer, the one who chose us & called us His own. Mary shows us a Heavenly Father whose heart breaks when His child is abused. Who wants us to receive healing & wholeness.

Together, Mary & Patrick provide an invaluable resource for anyone dealing with the effects of sexual abuse, either personally, who loving someone who is walking that journey. They so tenderly & lovingly walk you step-by-step from brokenness to restored.
They bring you through forgiveness to living healed & full of Joy, through God's truths. This book is a must read for anyone.

Format: Paperback
This book is by far the most helpful tool I have come across in my healing from Sexual Abuse. The way Mary shares her own story so as not to "glorify" the sin, but emphasize on the HEALING God has done and is doing in her life, resonated with me more than meeting with a counselor did. I recommend this to anyone who was abused, has a friend who was abused, or future spouses of someone who was abused. Healing is a lifelong journey, but God is the God who heals and restores. Romans 8:28.
