A powerful and ultimately inspirational tale of learning

Facing the Sunshine: A Young Woman's Emergence From the Shadows of Sexual Abuse and Anorexia is the true-life memoir of author Sarah Jane Thornton, whose childhood was savaged by the specter of sexual abuse. At age sixteen, she fled home and began to systematically starve herself, which nearly killed her; hospitalized for two years after a suicide attempt at age twenty-one, she was subjected to seclusion, shock therapy, restraint with medication, and other questionable treatments. It was psychotherapy that gradually succeeded in helping her, along with self-empowering interactions and her own inner strength. Surpassing expectations, she earned her own right to be discharged, and as an adult found it possible to live with her father and former abuser, discovering the healing power of forgiveness and looking toward a better future. A powerful and ultimately inspirational tale of learning to enjoy and cherish life despite years of suffering past.
