A beacon of hope. Deb Kline's heart-wrenching and soul-giving true story offers a love letter to kindred incest and rape survivors, a guidebook to those who love and care for them, and a powerful vicarious experience to help us all empathize with the plight of one in four girls and one in six boys. Out of deep emotional wounding, the author emerges a healer by courageously trekking inward, dodging monsters in her psyche, and stumbling downward into the shadows of forgotten trauma. There, she unearths dark family secrets. Her adult life shatters into chaos when these childhood memories of incest resurface. During this chaos, Deb rediscovers what she had learned in order to survive-that artistry is soul medicine. Music, poetry, dance, and art, her heart's compositions become her healing balm. Captivating, devastating, perceptive, and life affirming, Forgetting to Remember exposes the intimate damage of trauma and embodies the triumphant human spirit.
