Know then that I am not an objective reviewer.
I knew she was writing this book.
And while the book is quite disturbing, it is nevertheless a page turner, and gave this male some limited insight into an all too frequent nightmare for half of humanity.
You will not regret doing so.
When I began reading, one of the first things I noticed was how much Warner did “right.” Her immediately reported the incident, submitted to a medical examination, and sought the comfort of family and friends. In addition, the legal proceedings went rather favorably for her. This is not to say that everything was hunky-dory. Warner was constantly in doubt about her self-worth and her actions. Did she deserve to be raped? Was she wrong in submitting and not physically defending herself? Would she ever be able to have a normal relationship again? She also suffered financially, tolerated sexual harassment from unsympathetic coworkers, and alienated friends and family who didn’t know how to relate to her problem. But she somehow she managed, seeking solace in a support group and empowerment in a self-defense class. And by taking her time, Warner heals. She masters up the courage to try new things, pursue a new career, and eventually take ownership over her sexuality.
I’d recommend The Year After for books clubs and support groups because there’s so many discussion possibilities. Family and friends are both help and hindrance.Read more ›
Ashley Warner has done something that took so much bravery, I can't even imagine. She's taken her experience, something so terrible, vile, and a million other words such as those, and documented it and turned it into this, the true 'Year After' You follow her through that first year with, as the synopsis says, unflinching honesty. You see as she does her best to move on just going through the motions, finding herself angry at every person but the one who did that most horrible thing to her. Yet, you watch her ups and her downs, and ultimately her triumphs. I cannot praise this memoir enough, one of the best I've read in a long while. Sometimes there's those books that make you feel like there aren't enough "stars" in your rating system to describe how beautiful they are. Mrs. Warner has inspired me so much by writing this, sharing her story. This will stay with me for a long while. I highly recommend, walking in Ashley's shoes by reading this has certainly given me a new outlook on a lot of things.
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the author. This, however, in no way affected my thoughts expressed in this review.*
a doubt help others. Though it has never happened to me it did to my sister.
To bad this wasn't available to her.
Thank you again. God bless you.
