Ana Ramana's autobiographical novel is an unusual tale, chronicling a childhood in 1960's Ireland; a freak accident and Near Death Experience; recovered memories of childhood abuse and violence; and seven years of deep internal investigation and meditation, to eventually finding love for all characters involved, including the perpetrators.

"Every twelve minutes in the USA, someone is being violated; it is a massive issue in our culture and to my knowledge, I've not seen another book that looks at both sides of the equation - victim and perpetrator - and unearths not just compassion, not just forgiveness, but real love for everyone involved - including myself, perhaps the hardest journey of all." Ana Ramana
