-From the Introduction


More About the Author

I live in a log house on a small farm in Idaho, between mountains (east) and desert (west). A lovely river runs through the nearest town.

My neighborhood has horses, mules, cattle and sheep, plus dogs and cats, and wild creatures like owls, hawks, jackrabbits, cottontail rabbits, coyotes, foxes, and an occasional eagle or badger. I love the rural scene and dread development that is marching this way.

I'm lucky I get to write nearly full time. I'm also fortunate that I get to write about topics I enjoy. Of the six books I've published, five have been about animals.

Format: Paperback
I have listened to adult survivors, and professionals who treat them refer to Ms. Sherlock's meditations for the survivor as a "voice that has been there." But I did not understand the depth of understanding until after reading the book I realized that I had been given the opportunity to get a peek of the world throught the eyes of a survivor. If you are a survivor, you will find these compasionate meditations a comforting day-to-day guide through the wilderness. However, if you are not a survivor, and you are in relationship with someone who is; you will find insight here even your partner cannot provide.

This is a lovely book. I think that anyone who makes it through childhood has had to deal with some abuse. Unfortunately, some deal with much more than others. Patti's book is a compassionate, thoughtful book that lights a light on what can be a dark path. I would highly recommend this book to those fighting to take back their lives. This book will help.

As a survivor of incest, I often felt that I was just imagining the symptoms, that I should just get over it already. I felt like maybe I was born broken so to speak, but this book gave me so much comfort just to know that other people are going through exactly what I went through, not to be over dramatic, but it changed my life. My therapist recommended this book and I'm so glad she did. The stories hit on so many of the topics I struggle with and give options of how to handle those feelings. I can't recommend this book enough.

This is the best book I've ever read for survivors of child abuse and those who support them.

It is an easy read and filled with postive healing messages.

I bought copies for friends who were wounded as children and will use the book in my counseling practice.
