Secrets: A Story of Innocence Lost
ISBN: 0805974865 Dorrance Publishing Co. Inc.. 2007 Each one of us carries a story or a secret that we keep from others, but some stories should not be left untold. Sexual abuse is a serious crime to children and adolescents, affecting them both physically and emotionally.
Siblings Ty and Beth each endured a lonely childhood marred by sexual abuse, but neither knew of the other's experiences and pain. Instead, they independently and silently lived with shame, guilt, and confusion, feelings that manifested themselves in defiance, insecurity, and further sexual promiscuity. It was not until they shared their secrets, with each other and with the mother who blamed herself for not being able to recognize their pain, that they were able to begin the process of healing and forgiving.
Secrets: A Story of Innocence Lost by D.M. Jackson tells the story of one family's journey through secrecy and abuse to forgiveness and a new start in life.
