by Jane N Dowling – This book is a very useful spiritual resource not only for survivors of sexual abuse but also for anyone who is caring for or supporting them including family, chaplains, clergy, religious, and pastoral carers. Apart from offering hope, consolation and a source of healing to survivors and the community at large, it also offers insight into the impacts and effects of sexual abuse.
