I constantly review books looking for those I can highly recommend and certainly yours will be at the top of my list...I can't tell you how pleased I am at the quality of the information you have provided. There are so many people out there who desperately need to read what you have written. -- Linda Halliday-Sumner Sexual Abuse Consultant
I found the book to be informative and easy to read. It was very good in describing the feelings that partners of survivors experience while helping a survivor to heal from the painful and devastating experience of childhood sexual abuse... From my past experience working with partners of survivors I would highly recommend this book to them. -- Maria Wallenius, Co-ordinator of the Sexual Assault Centre of Nippissing

To husbands: FYI - the healing is a very long and arduous process - it ain't pretty, and it really helps if you have a LOT of love and MORE stamina. If so, I highly recommend "Women Who Hurt Themselves" by Dusty Miller. It's a tough read, but will put things into a logical framework for you. This issue has a lot of gender implications in its understanding, and a logical framework seems to be essential for the male in the role of supportive mate.
If you are a partner or significant other, you will find this book enlightening. You will finally understand the survivors anger, grief, and pain. You will learn how to back off and give space or embrace them for comfort.
This is also a good book for therapist who are working with couples or families. Highly recommended.
In reviewing this book, I have found it to be a wonderful book for my client's partners to better understand their significant other's needs and their own. This book creats hope for both partners, and supports increased and healthy communication between both individuals. I would recommend this book for anyone who practices within this field, or an individual who is involved in a loving relationship with a person who has been sexually abused. Remember:"It is better to be active and supportive with those that have been abused, then to do nothing at all, and hope one day things will work itself out."
