When the first sentence you read about a new book is:
"When high-powered attorney Helen Thompson discovers that her fifteen-year old daughter has been sexually assaulted, she takes drastic measures."
You know you are not in for a light, fluffy or meaningless story. Helen's daughter has indeed been assaulted, and the measures the character takes are certainly drastic.
Ripple: A Tale of Hope and Redemption, by E L Farris is an amazing book that takes dark and difficult subject matter, deals with it realistically and still manages to be uplifting.
What I loved about Ripple:
As mentioned this is a realistic portrayal of sex crimes and incest. The language is also authentic. If you like your literature squeaky clean and your language at PG level, this may not be the book for you.
If you are a survivor of abuse or incest, read this book. If you are the mother of a survivor, read this book. If you work with survivors of abuse and incest, but them a copy of this book. If you are an advocate aiming to raise awareness of the complex issues and prevalence of sexual violence and abuse, buy everyone you know this book.
