In this memoir, Maya Hope Kitwana exposes her truth; showing from the inside out what was required for her to survive her childhood nightmares. These nightmares no longer torment Maya Hope Kitwana. Her story provides a lighthouse for others who have suffered abuse. A way out to discover love. A strong word of caution-the material shared isn't for everyone. Maya's story is not just a recap of unflinching secrets. This is a graphic, yet fearless look at a woman's journey through rape, incest, and abandonment-and her movement toward hope, healing, intimacy, and love. Maya charts a course that is painful and powerful.
This work is about secrets and rage.
It is about honesty and revenge.
Over thirty years of silence is too long....

About the Author

My name is Maya Hope Kitwana, and I'm a mother of three beautiful and generous souls. Trained as an aesthetician and holistic practitioner, I've made it my life's work to bring out the beauty in-and give comfort-to those I encounter. My Caribbean heritage offers me a different perspective, and my humble beginnings keep me grounded. This journey has taken over thirty years.

Writing has become therapy for me. I am happy that I chose to step forward with my story even as I worked through feelings of shame and embarrassment. My hope is that my experiences help people going through similar traumas. I want them to know that I see them, I hear them, and wish them love and healing. Walking toward self-love and acceptance was not easy. And yet ... here I AM. This is my greatest joy, and I am blessed....
