about

This is a true story of terrible abuse and its consequences, and of courageous survival and self-discovery. At the age of four, the author was raped and almost murdered by her father, leaving her permanently disabled. Yet the horrific event remained unacknowledged within the family for many years, and suppressed within the victim's subconscious until she sought therapy. Some of that therapy was so misdirected that it amounted to further abuse - yet Brenda fought on, knowing that only by uncovering the truth would she achieve any measure of healing. A world of multiple personalities within her was revealed, some benign, some malevolent, all necessary to preserve sanity. Brenda's creativity rescued her - and her ability to transform inner chaos into poetic imagery elevates this powerful autobiography to the level of art as well as documentary.
