I recently received this ebook from the authour and I put it at the top of my current reading books. I know people who have dealt with issues such as these and I'm glad Lynn Daugherty wrote a book with these concerning events. I believe more people need to be informed and aware of the events of child abuse and I recommend this book to all. I enjoyed that the stories came straight from the victims themselves. I understand that some people believe that it should have been more intense and that the stories should have given more details, but understand that these people were victims, not storytellers. They are recounting events that they never wanted to happen and they are doing all that is in them to forget these horrid events that were bestowed upon them. I though this was well told and I felt sorry for these innocent children that were gravely affect by these disturbing encounters. The children in all stories felt "dirty" and "guilty" and I feel that these children should know that they are victims. That means none of this deserved to happen to any of them. Although some people were angered when the children came forward, just know that the victimised children aren't at fault. I pray that children are no longer victimised and that those who have been, find the strength to come forward and get help. If you're in doubt or are look for advice, read this book. Lynn Daugherty gives you the strength you need to seek help and overcome this disgusting act that some people find tasteful. I hope those who do read it, find it as helpful as I did.

It was ok. I thought they would be longer stories about what happened to people, however, they were short stories and how to help people who were raped and such how to survive and deal with the pain.

"Child Molestation Stores: Voices of Survivors" by Dr. Lynn Daugherty was very informative read. This was the first time I have ever read anything like this so and I thought Dr. Daugherty did a good job at conveying to us about just what is Child Sexual Abuse. How the survivors shared there stores of rape, molestation and incest was very real and I know it will help someone out there that may need to know that they are not alone in these situations. There is help out there for you! The book has three main chapters: 1. Stories from victims of child abuse....chapter 2. Questions and answers about child sexual abuse and chapter 3. Choosing a professional counselor. All of these chapters were good especially chapter 1 and 2 and even chapter 3 in guidance selection is very important too. Questions like (why me?) and answers to those type of questions are discussed in this read. This information that is told and given is very easy to read and informative way. I believe a teenager around 16+ could really understand this read. This read can be very helpful for that person that has been in any of these situations. Since this novel "Child Molestation Stories: Voices of Survivors" was written for the victims of child sexual abuse... who are now teenagers or adults ... families, friends, counselors and others who would like to help them is why it is very important to have this type of material available. This novel is not a very long read but one will find very helpful and to the point and I would recommend this book as a good read.

I think the author did an excellent job of summurizing up the types of abuse and I like the way she talked about brief incidents as opposed to the long term ones. Some would think that the brief ones are so minor that one should just "get over it" and not let it affect their lives. Yet even a brief experience can have long lasting effects. I appreciate that she defined sexual abuse, making it clear that intercourse is not the only way a person is sexually abused. Lynn also explains what is "normal sexual play" with children as opposed to abuse. This is wonderful to include as most children do experiment a little at some point. There are many misconceptions about this subject. Especially when talking to someone who is elderly. I have found that the older generation likes to stick their head in the sand and not talk about it at all. Or once the subject has come out, then it's been spoken of, therefore dealt with and we need not discuss it again. Basically pretend it never happened. But the victim WILL need to still talk about it. They need support! Small children are very easily manipulated and I think Lynn makes that point clear when she explains why children don't tell. I'm sure many parents wonder why their child didn't say something. My mother can't get over how she didn't see it, how she couldn't know something was going on. I must say - the paragraph that made me want to cheer was the one captioned "Can people ever have "false memories" of child sexual abuse? I love the author's response to this question! Since my memories didn't come till I was in my 50's that was a question some have asked. My therapist was VERY careful to NOT plant any memories in me. I wrestled with doubts at first myself, but eventually came to accept that the memories were real. It was a very difficult journey for me. Lynn Daugherty's book is an excellent introduction to sexual abuse and gives details on how to seek more information and help. Good job!!

This book is full of the first hand accounts of sexual abuse survivors of all ages, both male and female. We like to believe it doesn't happen but we all know it does. The accounts are unbelievable but true. It is incredibly hard to read but well worth it, especially for other survivors so they know that they are not alone. The author also does a wonderful job of describing the emotional reaction that is often exerienced in association with the event(s) later in life, sometimes without the victim even understanding why the reaction occurs. They may have an adverse reaction to a certain smell or touch. Also included is an explanation of the different ways the abused person copes, always making sure it is understood that nothing is the victim's fault whether they report the abuse or not. The main point that comes across loud and clear is that children of sexual abuse can go on to have normal productive and happy lives.
