9781512145021: Learning to Love Myself: Recovery and Self-Discovery after Child Sexual Abuse (Incest) (No Tears for my Father) (Volume 2)

The author, Viga Boland, was the victim of child sexual abuse at the hands of her biological father for 14 years. She told no-one of the abuse, including her husband of 45 years, until she was 65 years old. Why did she keep quiet for so long? How did she heal? Did she have therapy? What are the long terms effects on a victim's life and her own family even after she gets away from her abuser? In the intimate, conversational tone that Viga Boland told her gold-medal winning true story of incest, "No Tears for my Father", the author now shares the rest of her life with her readers and shows that through unconditional love, healing is possible. When a victim learns to love herself, only then can she truly love another. "Learning to Love Myself" is a story of hope that the abused can have a brighter tomorrow.

From the Author:

While most people flock to read my account of the sexual abuse I suffered for 14 years at the hands of my biological father in "No Tears for my Father", other readers, like me, feel this second book is actually the more important of the two because of its message of hope. While all victims suffer different degrees of abuse, and not all can be as lucky as I was to find a good husband who allowed me to rediscover myself and love myself as much as he did me, I believe "Learing to Love Myself" can encourage and inspire those victims to leave their past in the past and not live there anymore.

About the Author:

Viga Boland is the author of three memoirs. Her first memoir, a true story of incest, "No Tears for my Father", won her a Gold Medal in the 2014 Readers Favorite Book Awards. At the request of friends and fans, she then wrote the rest of her story of recovery and self-discovery, "Learning to Love Myself". Her latest memoir, "The Ladies of Loretto", is a funny, nostalgic look at what it was like to be a student in a Catholic Girls High School in the early 60's. Viga Boland facilitates memoir writing workshops for the Hamilton, Ontario Public Library and is also the editor/publisher of "Memoirabilia", a how-to magazine for memoir writers which also gives unknown writers a chance for exposure through submissions to the magazine.
