It is incredibly hard to find words to explain a book like this.
As a mom to four amazing little girls, I had a very hard time reading this book. Especially in the beginning, when Helen was just finding out what was going on.
I have never personally been the victim of sexual abuse. Or abuse of any kind really. It breaks my heart to read books like this KNOWING how real it is. Knowing that right now there are little girls suffering this kind of life.
I really liked the character of Helen. Put in her situation, I’m pretty sure I would do the same thing!
Phoebe was amazing as well. Strong yet fragile all at the same time.
All of the characters were great and the story was flawless.
You definitely won’t see the end coming!
Of course this book is great for anyone who was/is a victim of abuse and those who work with them, BUT it is also a must read for EVERYONE in my opinion.
Thanks to the author for writing such a great story.
A Lyrical Book of Healing
When high-powered attorney Helen Thompson discovers that her fifteen-year old daughter has been sexually assaulted, she takes drastic measures.
Finding herself in trouble, Helen must relinquish control and put her faith in a process she knows to be flawed. As a team of lawyers, therapists and women from a safe house help Helen and Phoebe find hope and healing, a sociopath lurks, waiting for his moment to strike.
A lyrical, dark fairytale that will resonate with fans of women’s literature and psychological thrillers, RIPPLE delves into the nature of evil, without seeking to provide final answers to the issue of what makes a human commit evil acts. And while the author takes readers to scary places, she ultimately shines a light on the human condition and celebrates the triumph of the human spirit in the face of great tribulation.
