The statistics are startling: 12-38 percent of women have experienced sexual abuse and over the next decade, more than 900,000 women and 28 million children will become victims. Sexual abuse is not going away--and neither will its aftermath.
In "Beyond Our Control," Leila Rae Sommerfeld shares her own story of recovery after rape to give victims hope and encouragement to overcome the emotional scars associated with sexual abuse. Through her story and the stories of other survivors, you will discover
-the three levels of victimization
-myths about rape
-how to grow emotionally and spiritually through the coping process
-how God plays a role in freeing you from shame, guilt, resentment, and harmful memories
With Leila Rae's reservoir of empathy and bonus material (including discussion questions and appendices), "Beyond Our Control" is the perfect book to share the hopeful message that new life is possible-and it is within reach.

srbcc5 Stars Out Of 5January 12, 2011srbccQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was looking for a book to recommend to a client who had been raped. This is a great book that gives a good description of what a rape victim experiences as well as valuable information on healing. Questions are contained at the end of many of the chapters to provide the rape victim the opportunity to reflect and/or journal about her own experience. My client found that she could relate to the information presented and found the questions valuable in her healing process. I will continue to recommend this book to others.
