Stolen Tomorrows encourages the 20 percent of women who have been abused to think about, talk about, and seek help for what has been their secret shame. In addition to giving therapists and other helpers an empathic insight, Stolen Tomorrows will enable the survivor to recognize herself in both her personal history and her current struggle to overcome the legacy of abuse.

    I started looking at this book in a book store because someone I’m friends with was abused. I thought it would have a lot of jargon but right away I found myself reading it easily so I bought the book. Some of the book is upsetting because sexual abuse is upsetting to think about but seeing that the survivors can get help and lead healthy lives is encouraging. I feel like I learned so much from this book and because it was broken down into different people’s stories, I found that I was flying through the pages.

    Promising Tomorrows, July 24, 2007

    Laura Moisin (New York) –

    Stolen Tomorrows was written in a most masterfully fluent way by Steven Levenkron. It is immediately gripping without sensationalizing or dehumanizing the victims of such destructive sexual abuse. It offered me a very clear understanding of each particular kind of sexual abuse and how all of these varying factors directly correlate to the future personalities and self-destructive behaviors exhibited by each victim. The detailed breakdown of the clear effects that sexual abuse has on women is undeniable and should cause us all, victim of sexual abuse or not, to be aware of its extensive prevalence. Ultimately, however, this is a book that offers hope. By allowing us to bear witness to each woman’s pain and journey of recovery, we becom keenly aware that real help is available and recovery is possible.

    Not very helpful in a therapeutic or self-help way but it does let you know that you aren’t alone. Ok read just not what I was looking for.
