By Patricia Weaver Francisco
The author invites the reader into her life and into the questions raised by a crime with no obvious solutions or easy answers. Readers see the dimensions of a human struggle often kept hidden from view.
While there are an estimated 12 million rape survivors in the United States, rape is still unspeakable, left out of our personal and cultural conversation. In this book, Francisco has found a language for the secret grief carried by men and women who have survived rape.
