Description

The Sound of Silence echoes with a voice of its own, for silence is a force unto itself. Its voice can be clearly heard in the repercussions that result from remaining silent—consequences that will spread as surely as ripples on a pond. This echo is theaftermath. Its origin is found in those who chose to remain silent when faced by that which is wrong; for when corruption and evil are ignored, other victims will follow as night follows day. The sound of silence resonates in the anguish of those who would otherwise have been spared the pain, had someone decided, instead, to speak out… Silence is the strongest ally of the pedophile. It is, in fact, his only real ally. He (nearly all pedophiles are ‘he’) relies on silence. He’s helped by the fact that his sordid actions instill needless shame in his young victims, an emotion that will often keep them silent forever. This is why one pedophile’s victims will often number in the hundreds—and most will never say a word… The author remained silent for more than twenty years, as did the other victims in the family in which he was raised. The silence was so deep, that not until two of them reached adulthood did the siblings together realize their father was what he was, and that each was not alone in the knowledge. Even then, they remained silent—for another two decades. It was a silence broken only by a call from the police. That silence haunts them still, for it should never have been…

    Some people are gifted with everything and do nothing. Deb has done so much with so many obstacles in her way. She is the definition of resilient. An inspiring read.

    I have known Deb for more than 30 years and she never ceased to inspire me. A talented writer, artist and photographer, and unrepentant animal lover, her story is stirring and motivating!

    Primal Power The Unripe Apple was given to me at my mother's memorial. I loved fantasy movies, but a book in that genre had never been my choice. Major changes were happening in my life and I needed an escape so I gave it a try. To my surprise I couldn't put it down! The book had mystery, magic, fear, love, friendship, joy, strength, courage, and I loved it! It seems laced with pearls of wisdom and I find myself rereading parts of it and always finding more insights. The characters within this book resonated with the strength within my own soul and have given me the courage to move forward, thank-you!

    I read the story with my 3 year old grand daughter and we both very much enjoyed it. Beautiful illustrations too. Review by Hannah (3 yrs)...."It was good. I liked the girl in the pink sweater."

    No one, especially a young child should have to deal with the consequences of an accidental gun shot. At nine years old, the author of this well written memoir was robbed of a youth, most of us take for granted.
    Hospitalized miles from family and their farm, she woke and was told because of a severed spinal cord she would never walk again.
    This is an inspiring story of determination and bravery, and how they shaped her as a person.
    How she never gave up on her dream to own horses, ride, and to live on a farm again. How her love and ability for training dogs enhanced her life with many special companions that also served a purpose.
    Reading this proves animals can make life worth living.
