This book is a deeply woven fictional piece. It focuses on the spiritual and psychological trials that befall the 'hero' as he moves through his life bound by the stigma of childhood sexual abuse that imposes a sentence of intolerable silence across 35 years of his life. Unchecked post-traumatic stress ensues. The pages inside shed raw light on what survivors may endure in the face of their self-imposed and often times family-reinforced shame and guilt. For those readers who have broken their silence, and for others still living in silent shame, both will hopefully obtain understanding from the story.
