Jacqueline Aaron about this book: The author is a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Along with my two sisters, we suffered as children from abuse inflicted by our father, a veteran of the Vietnam War and sufferer of Post-traumatic Stress Syndrome, while our mother ignored the plight we were under. Our lives were the pits, as we were victimized over and over, without surcease and without any family love that every child should have the right to expect. The trauma that children go through while growing up is severe enough without becoming sexual playthings for deranged people.
Fathers and mothers are supposed to protect their children, not abandon them and allow such things to happen. None the less, child sexual abuse occurs in many families and one out of every six females are molested before the age of eighteen. Boys are not exempt from sexual abuse, but that is a subject for another author. I can only relate to our difficulties. Even so, we did survive and mature, and this is the story of our personal triumph.
