Family Secrets

Chicago, IL (PressExposure) May 01, 2009 -- Just in time, when you feel like you are going to burst from hiding your family secrets, comes a fresh and insightful book that explores the mind and voice of a child announcing her family secret of incest, abuse, and betrayal – The Voices are Loud and Make Me Shout (978-0-615-24944-5, Trade paperback, 63 pp, 5 x 8, $18.00).

As street and gun violence escalates against our youth, a still, more covert problem is being denied, violence in the home, where protectors are predators and victims go unnoticed and unheard. Yet, it is estimated that there are 60 million survivors of childhood sexual abuse in America (Forward, 1993). Somehow, the children are left behind, victims shamed into silence.

The Voices are Loud and Make Me Shout is written to allow the inner child to have a voice. This book is different because the child tells her story from her own unleashed voice. It is quite risky to announce the secrets, but is quite necessary to find peace and healthy relationships.

Donna Eder, writes in a brazen poetic form that acknowledges and validates her pain. Her voice transforms her solitude of secrecy to awaken hope and empowerment. She speaks for those still unable to.

The Voices are Loud and Make Me Shout is a book to help other childhood trauma survivors envision a way out of their own shame and silence. It is a tool for professionals to realize the positive growth, healing, and purposeful change possible in the population.
