The book tells of the problems Joy has with feelings of sorrow, anger, shame and frustration that are stirred by media reports of sexual abuse of children in Institutions.
She knows that many more survivors, who were abused as adults and outside of institutions, are still unacknowledged. She is one of them. Her abuse began in her home. The story is about Joy's attempts to make sense of her life, get things into perspective and how she has thrived and been able to help others in their struggle.
