"Siblings Ty and Beth each endured a lonely childhood marred by sexual abuse, but neither knew of the other's experiences and pain. Instead, they independently and silently lived with shame, guilt, and confusion, feelings that manifested themselves in defiance, insecurity, and further sexual promiscuity. It was not until they shared their secrets, with each other and with the mother who blamed herself for not being able to recognize their pain, that they were able to begin the process of healing and forgiving."--Page 4 of cover.
