Sexual abuse changes lives. It has an insidious impact on the psyche of the victim, and the effects of such abuse are lifelong. From the first act perpetrated on the young victim, the child is threatened, "Don't tell anyone." This horrible secret spreads like a cancer throughout the body and soul. In order to heal, this cancer must be excised. This work forms part of the healing process of one survivor of childhood sexual abuse. The images are harsh, the language frightening, but the experience is real. Though she has come to terms with her anger and pain and has forgiven her father, she still suffers.

Abigail's book is a gem to anyone who suffers or has suffered from the effects of incest. We have heard many times when people look at the book and exclaim that they have drawn similar things to the works pictured. For all people who have had incest inflicted on them, this book will help them not feel so alone.From the Inside Flap:
Haunting, often disturbing, the images inthis book portray the emotions and pain of incest suffered by the artist as a young child. This collection of watercolors is accompanied by a text that isfrank, sometimes to the point of harshness. There is nothing gentle in this journey through the past except that, in taking the journey back, the artist was able to begin the process of healing. Even today, this continues. Obviously, this book is not for children, and some adults might even find it alarming in its vivid portrayal of a subject that is onerous at best. What this book does provide is a pathway to healing that survivors of incest so not have to take alone.
