it was amazing

Having met the author of this amazingly painful makes it possible to believe that people can heal after being physically and emotionally tortured for years by the person who promises to love them and take care of them. Viga shines ....her smile and her beautiful personality helps to erase the discomfort that you feel reading about the horrific childhood that she had. Seeing her today makes me believe that survival is possible for any injustice that we experience in our life. Childhood sexual abuse or any abuse as children should be addressed. Viga's story is truly a means to remove the guilt and shame that the innocents feel for years before taking the step to share their nightmares with others and to take the first steps to heal.

Viga Boland Oh thank you ever so much for these lovely words Melanie. I know this wasn't an easy read for you, as it isn't for many people, even those who have been abused and know what I know about what it does to you. But your review helps me tell them you CAN get better; you CAN heal ... but you MUST speak out from under incest and stop carrying the shame and blame that's been heaped on you but belongs to your abuser.
