Overview
Based on a 12-year study with 60 survivors of childhood sexual abuse, Catherine Cameron sets out to understand their early trauma and its impact over subsequent years and to monitor their progress toward recovery. The difficult but rewarding process of their recovery unfolded over time, along with increasing societal awareness of the problem. In 1998 a final survey provided the epilogue for their story. Cameron grounds their personal stories by citing parallels to the larger field of national and international trauma. The result is a compelling and deeply human story of trauma and triumph.
