A Journey to Remember

The most beautifully written personal journey that I have ever had the honor of reading. Wisechild does not offer you a guide, she offers you her personal journey through hell. She explains each step of the way as it un-folded in her life. What Raw, painful, saddness of a soul wounded and how a journey of crawling to the light brings hope. This is not a CSA guide or self-help book. This is a book written by a very brave survivor who crawled out of the obsidian well and became whole again.


Beautifully written, and still remembered- even after all these years. Wisechild's skill as a writer shines though her crisp words and evocative imagery as she writes with resilience of her journey through remembering child sexual abuse. Recommended.

A powerful and positive journey of healing from incest

Louise Wisechild's frank account of her incest memories and journey towards recovery is essential reading for anyone recovering from child sexual abuse. She uses her skill as a writer to paint the full picture of her horrifying experiences as a young child, conveying the sense of powerlessness and hopeless that sexual abuse causes. The therapy sessions are described in detail, it's like sitting in on the session and seeing her process happening as she sifts through memories and makes connections with the way her adult attitudes and beliefs were shaped by the abuse. The reader gains vicarious healing by being drawn along in Louise Wisechild's journey to find her answers from within herself. The book's message about having the courage to face the memories, and hopefulness about reshaping one's life in spite of the past trauma, is a powerful and healing message that all adult survivors of abuse will benefit from hearing.
