The Journey of Healing is a first-of-its kind literary anthology showcasing the work of sexual abuse survivors. Submissions for the book came from many continents, from divergent cultures and ages, and from both men and women. The final selections of poems, essays and stories chosen for the book include fiction as well as autobiographical pieces. These resonant writings articulate both the pain and the hope that come from the process of enduring and surviving abuse. The anthology also features black and white photographs by one of the contributors. The voices in this book are unique, strong, aware, and wise. The contributors are a testament to the resiliency of the human spirit and to the power of the written word.
