"I couldn’t talk to anyone about it, … no one would believe me."

Approximately one in five women has been sexually abused as a child. For too long, survivors of child sexual abuse have lived in a suffocating darkness of silence. Now at last we are hearing their stories.

Maxine Hancock and Karen Mains have listened to and studied cases of hundreds of women around the world who have been wounded by childhood abuse. Weaving together these personal stories with current research, the authors discuss what constitutes child sexual abuse, the physical and emotional problems that often haunt women in their adult lives, and offer spiritual and emotional encouragement for the journey towards healing.

With updated statistics and resources, this book will prove to be an invaluable tool for survivors of abuse, as well as friends, lay counselors, and others who compassionately seek to understand and support women.

Maxine Hancock, Ph.D. , is Associate Professor of Inter-Disciplinary Studies and Spiritual Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, and speaks widely on topics of concern to women. “This book is my gift to my sisters and those who lovingly support their journey into healing.” Her other books include Creative, Confident Children and Living on Less and Liking It More .

Karen Burton Mains is a writer and conference speaker, involved in radio and television broadcasting through The Chapel Ministries. She has authored and coauthored over twenty books for adults and children, including Open Heart, Open Home, and the children’s trilogy Tales of the Kingdom, Tales of the Resistance and Tales of the Restoration.
