A captivating story of abuse, courage and the journey to wholeness.

Reve-healed is a true story of the author’s experience as a young girl navigating sexual violence in a society that stigmatizes the abused and empowers the abuser through a culture of silence. This book holds a message for survivors of sexual abuse, custodians of children, and society at large. 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! You don’t have to live alone in fear and silence. Find your voice!”


“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.”-

" 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"
