About the Author

The author became acquainted with ritual abuse when she met Barbara B. more than two decades ago in a psychiatric program for women with histories of sexual abuse. While Cath worked on incest issues, she watched Barbara and others in the program struggle with more severe, past trauma. With Barbara's cooperation she wrote the brutal story of Barbara's childhood experiences and the frightening period of self-exile as an adult who "knew too much." The author takes pains not to focus on the horror of Barbara's experience but to emphasize recovery and spirituality. She shares with Barbara a lifelong commitment to the education of children and a fierce belief in the dignity, creativity, and sanctity of every child. This book embodies not only Barbara's triumph over ritual abuse but the author's determination to break the silence on behalf of her friend. It is the author's fervent desire that good people throughout the country and beyond will open their minds and hearts to the heinous crimes represented by ritual abuse and extend their caring and support to victims and survivors.
