It shows the strength and healing that comes from uncovering our greatest pain, owning our story, and finding our voice. Anita’s message to abuse survivors “Silence is a weapon of the enemy!

“Anita’s autobiographical exposition is a heartbreaking account of her childhood sexual abuse and her fractured trust in the adults around her, who either did not see the signs or chose not to acknowledge or act on them. As she endures the silent trauma of incest, she seeks answers and refuge in her faith, but the steady corrosion of her hope eventually damages her relationship with God, leaving her profoundly alone and morally vulnerable. Superbly written, Ann offers you a personal invitation to witness and experience firsthand what people closest to her failed to see. Page-by-page she draws you carefully into her traumatic chronicle of sexual abuse, mercifully culminating in her escape, reaffirmation of her faith, and her healing journey through moral reconciliation.”-

First, I want to say this book was beautifully written in a way that engages the audience and takes them on a journey. Honestly, I was a bit scared of reading this book because I honestly felt it may be a bit triggering to read and it was. Actually teared up reading it and related to it in different ways. I loved that it covered a range of themes including mental health, child sexual abuse, dealing with death, suicide, misogyny, guilt and so many others. But I even loved more that rather than just recounting these stories there was research to back it up, bible verses and general tips, tools and resources that help people that may be going through it. By doing this, I feel like it will be really helpful to a wide range of audiences in terms of being educative and providing some sort of hope to people going through it. On the outside looking in, it may seem like this book is for only a specific type of audience but I feel like everyone needs to read this book. It helps challenge some unconscious and conscious biases in how we deal with the topic of sex in the society especially among children. It also helps us understand the signs to look out in people suffering abuse and how to respond to them. This is very important read for everyone as we all need to work to dismantle this culture of silence both as survivors of abuse and third parties who can provide a helping hand.

" This book represents such a powerful story, a must read. It has opened my eyes to ongoing trauma that young women and girls experience, sometimes in a place that should represent safety. Thank you for sharing such a powerful story and for challenging us to listen and to pay attention to the signs"

Reve-healed: a true story of pain, healing and hope: Personal and Educative Story The author tells it as is. Childhood sexual abuse has been a big problem in the society. Most often than not the adult that supposed to protect the children in their care are the perpetrators or co-perpetractors of this evil.This book does not only reveals the author's childhood trauma but also provides information on how to support abused children and the signs parents and guardians need to watch for.A big thank you to Anita for sharing her story with the world.
