Editorial Reviews

Review

  • "From the soul of a child and the heart of a woman comes a story about turning imagination into possibility and scars into art." - Rosie O'Donnell, Talk Show Host

From the Author

I've written many articles about child abuse over the years, both as a social issues writer and a survivor. I have felt the frustration of being told that it's a "cliched" topic. I've seen the label "victim" misused and spit out as an insult. I've seen scientific evidence of permanent brain changes (caused by the stress hormone cortisol) in neglected children thrown out by those who would like to believe that everything under the sun is a matter of personal choice and character. I didn't write this book for those people. As Joseph Dunninger once said on another matter altogether, "For those who believe, no explanation is necessary. For those who do not believe, no explanation will suffice." Instead, I wrote this book for those who struggled against the odds to forge their own roads to recovery -- who may not have always known how, and who may have stumbled so horribly along the way that they didn't know if recovery would be possible -- but who loved life enough to keep hoping and trying. There really is a green field on the other side. It took me four decades to find it -- to accept the support and faith of others and to take the risk I needed to take to save my own life -- but now that I'm here it feels more important to me than ever to let other "elephant girls" know that they are not alone. Beyond damage, beyond brokenness, beyond even the worst mistakes and hurtful judgments, there is a place of redemption and repair.
