The words “Healing, incest and joy” are rare companions. But in a riveting new book a survivor of incest, lays out her path from incest to joy with her own story of grief, humor, love and practice. Healing My Life from Incest to Joy, by Donna Jenson …“is unique and personal in its detail, yet also universal and human in its impact,” says Gloria Steinem. 

“This book is not prescriptive, not a “how-to” guide to overcoming trauma,” wrote reviewer Lea Grover, of Voices and Faces, a survivors’ organization. “It is a detailed account of what helped Jenson, how and why she came to learn new tools for introspection and growth, and where any person could find them…It’s the kindness of this storytelling that is so striking. Jenson does not pretend to speak on behalf of all survivors, but she clearly speaks to all who’ve survived trauma. This book firmly says, “If I can do it, so can you,” and reading her words, she compels you to believe them.”
