it was amazing
Recommended to Heather by: Victoria Boland
Recommended for: Women, men, parents, therapists

Our minds don't easily process depravity, but Viga Boland takes us there in her heart and gut-wrenching memoir and haunting poetry of incest and abuse in "No Tears for my Father". Her goal is to teach us to see what we don't want to see and moreover, to do something about it. Viga encourages us, with raw honesty and without self-pity, to speak up and root out these sadistic psychopaths who operate behind a veil of secrecy and an illusion of decency. She takes us right there--and then lifts us back out with her hope, courage and endurance to overcome. Thank you Viga. You have just helped someone out there to come out from under.
