    Terrific, Sensitive, and Well-Written

    Eileen Greenwood is free, 18, and off to college. Well, that¿s how it looks on the surface. It is true that she¿s a freshman in college now, but she¿s not free. She is haunted by memories and nightmares of sexual abuse suffered at the hands of her brother, Brad. No one would believe her, and her own father and sister could not understand her seemingly irrational antipathy toward Brad. She is relieved to escape her childhood home, but she doesn¿t find solace easily. Her roommate, Alisa, and her kind-hearted boyfriend, Patrick, don¿t seem to be able to help her either. Eileen is obsessed with finding out more about her brother and his life and motivations, and it¿s not until she embarks on a serious search that she can get to the truth of what compelled her brother to repeatedly rape her. ####### For some time there has been a growing movement in the realm of abuse and sexual assault prevention: men have joined forces with women and organized to battle against rape and sexual abuse. As a dedicated sexual assault counselor, author Jim Hines brings a sensitive and compassionate viewpoint to this unforgettable story about one young woman determined to face and defeat the demons that haunt her. ####### This book is well-written and evocative. Not many male authors have created such a true portrait of a woman in pain and trouble. Hines has done it with effortless grace and with empathy and accuracy as well. This novel is for anyone trying to reconcile the terrors of the past with the hopes of the future. I highly recommend it. ####### ~Lori L. Lake, Midwest Book Review
