Safe Behind the Little Waterfall is an amazing memoir of healing from adversity: physical, emotional, sexual abuse, codependency, and loss. The young Donna had an alcoholic father who was emotionally and physically abusive. Donna was also sexually abused by her grandpa as a child. This decades- old secret is finally revealed in her book.

In this book she shares openly, with vulnerability and courage the process of forgiving her father, mother and grandpa.
On May 18th, 2011, Donna’s only child, her beloved daughter Jennifer Ann jumped off the high- level bridge. Donna tells of her painful journey of grief and her longing for the love of her life, in detail with honesty and a real, raw edge.

About the Author
I was born in a small town and grew up on a farm. I was married at twenty and had our beautiful baby girl at twenty-six. Sadly, Jennifer Ann Clewes took her life on May 18th, 2011. I am proud to say that I started writing late in my life. I wrote the first paragraph of my book eight years ago and time stood still! I loved writing and that's when I knew that it was my soul's agenda. My process of writing has not been without some resistance, however. I believed that I wasn't worthy of creating and after I dealt with this false belief, I was able to move forward and find the courage to finish my book. I am very grateful for my husband Gerry who encouraged me. "Safe Behind the Little Waterfall" Finding Peace and Freedom Through the Journey of Healing, has been my baby. It took seven years to complete. My process has been both exciting and healing. My hope is that it will also be healing for all of you.
