Because I Love You:
The Silent Shadow of Childhood Sexual Abuse, by Joyce Allan

The emotional, physical and spiritual damages of incest will affect one in four of us before the age of eighteen. Forces of patriarchy and taboo forbid us from talking about this topic, says Allan, a child psychiatric nurse/therapist. 

Using the story of her pedophile father's life, extensive interviews and statistics, she encourages us to break the social silence that permits abuse to pass down through generations. A book to heal and transform the heart. SPEAK!

#B-BIL. Because I Love You: The Silent Shadow of Child Sexual Abuse. 320 pages, 8 1/4" x 10 3/4"  trade paperback with ivory colored paper. 200 b&w photographs and several color plates. #B-BIL


"Because I Love You makes a valuable contribution to the field of feminist psychology and healing. In documenting her family history of sexual abuse, Joyce Allan... delves into the hidden reasons for silence and complicity -- subjects especially timely at this moment." -- Starhawk, author of The Spiral Dance 

"Extraordinary... This is a moving real life story, told with stark honesty and courage by a sexual abuse survivor who became a therapist and then an activist to protect abuse victims. Because I Love You will inspire and support others to come forward, to expose those left in the shadows -- to stop protecting abusers and instead protect our children."  -- Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and The Blade
