Telling the story of the author's very personal experience of childhood sexual abuse and trauma, rediscovered on another very traumatic day, that of September 11, 2001, this book will both break your heart and bring you hope.

Not My Secret to Keep is an absolutely fantastic book in this genre. More than just a book that recounts the author's experiences with childhood sexual abuse, it also provides an excellent resource in recovering from such physical and emotional abuse and injury.
