To her surprise, dismay, and eventually relief, Mary Armstrong, a therapist with over thirty years of experience helping people heal from childhood trauma, uncovered her own history of child sexual abuse at the hands of her grandfather and father. As she tells her harrowing but heroic tale, she casts light as never before on the issue of repressed memories and the invisible wounds left by childhood trauma.

Reviews:

Trauma therapist Mary K. Armstrong embarks on an illuminating journey into her own secret past and emerges with a renewed sense of personal authenticity and joy in helping others. A compelling synthesis of Eastern and Western healing wisdom. -- Sylvia Fraser, author of My Father's House: A Memoir of Incest and Healing

This book is a brilliant, heartbreaking, and inspiring account of a child's tragedy and a woman's persistent growth toward light, knowledge, truth, and strength. Never has the human spirit shone through more passionately, as the author takes us on a fascinating journey from the challenges of her yoga and psychotherapy training to her hard-won personal discoveries and triumphs. -- Judy Steed, author of Our Little Secret: Child Sexual Abuse

About the Author:

Mary K. Armstrong is one of Canada's most accomplished trauma therapists. She earned her Master of Social Work degree from the School of Social Work, University of Toronto, and has trained extensively in the techniques of Focusing and EMDR. Mary lives in Toronto.
