Through years of being told not to tell anyone, in fear of the leather belt that her father welted her with many times, the guilt that Jane felt into her teenage years led to unhealthy coping mechanisms. Failed suicide attempts, concealed self-mutilation, and the realization that her family knew of the abuse and did nothing taught Jane that it was okay to let go of the guilt and to trust in those few special people who showed up in her life. Through the detailed accounts of Janeas abuse, and the realization that what had happened to her was not in any way her fault, the reader will find more than just a traumatic story. What the reader will find is how this woman overcame the odds and later used her experiences to provide a voice for those undergoing the same afflictions. You will feel her pain, share in her joys, but most of all you will experience not only how Jane survived life, but how Jane survived herself.
