About the Author:
Through her writing, Nancy offers us a rare and courageous glimpse into the devastating and complex nature of traumatic injury from childhood sexual abuse and all of its associated symptoms. We witness first-hand how our survival instincts can help us live through the unlivable and then cope with the aftermath. We are reminded of the power of meaningful connection in bringing healing, purpose and possibility into our lives. And perhaps, most importantly, we are shown by vivid example that it is possible to heal from trauma.
