About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Although the author recounts her own story of abuse, she does not focus on the negative and instead focuses on the "hope for healing" of abuse victims. This book offers practical ways to help the abuse survivor heal. Faith plays an integral part of that journey. The author says, "I made great strides through therapy, but it wasn't until I let God be in charge of my healing and asked for the grace of forgiveness that I really recovered my sense of joy."
Doyle also tells the reader what to look for in a child so "that they may be protected and an intervention applied early when a case of incest is suspected."
Most chapters begin with a relevant Scripture passage. Some of the more compelling chapters include: "My Own Story," "Grooming," "Recognizing the Signs," "Don't Be Afraid to Call for BackUp," "Comfort and Purging," and "Forgiveness."
Abuse survivors need to know that they are not alone in their struggles. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has experienced sexual abuse or who knows an abuse survivor.
