Telling: A Memoir of Rape & Recovery
Patricia Weaver Francisco. In this intimate memoir, Francisco tells of her 15-year journey to recognize & overcome the effects of a violent rape. She explores key aspects of a woman’s life in the aftermath of rape -- passion, marriage, solitude, childbirth, motherhood. While there are an estimated 12 million rape survivors in the U.S., rape is still unspeakable, left out of our personal & cultural conversation. Here, Francisco has found a language for the secret grief carried by women & men who have survived rape. She reminds us “how beautiful the dignity of truth can be” & inspires in us a desire to listen, to know the truths that can transform our own lives. She also gives us a clear portrait of the tragic consequences for the survivor -- & our culture -- when we neglect this human story.
