Teaser Tuesday: The River and the Sea

The forgiveness had opened the door to healing. It was not only forgiveness of him; I had to forgive myself too.

The River and the Sea: A Story of Forgiveness by Julia Laughlin.

When Julia Laughlin was 21, she was raped and tortured by a man she knew and had trusted. In this memoir, written over 30 years later, Julia writes with candor and honesty about how the attack affected her as a woman and mother, and the legacy it left on her daughter. She hopes her story will help others whose lives have been marred by sexual violence find a way to heal.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB at Books and a Beat, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

In The River and the Sea, Julia Laughlin travels to New Zealand, three decades after she is brutally raped and tortured, to answer these questions for herself.
