Stones were removedMoreA gripping read and compelling exploration of childhood sexual abuse and the challenges of recovery.When Linda Day lost her management job at IBM, she went into therapy to turn off the neon FAILURE sign blinking on her forehead. Stones were removed from her wall of normality, and it tumbled, taking with it her marriage and most of her notions of her self and her sexuality.

As she struggled to rebuild her life and decipher her sexual orientation, she ran head-on into repressed memories of her mother’s sexual abuse.Thus began one woman’s tortuous journey through her therapist’s disbelief, unexpected encounters with multiple personalities, and a bewildering mix of dysfunctional but informative straight and gay relationships. This psychological detective memoir traces the author’s path as she pieces together a puzzle dating from her earliest years to reach a startling conclusion.Candor, wit and wry humor characterize the compelling narrative -- masterfully told, unsentimental and unflinching.“Read this book.

... You will be drawn into Linda’s story, which will keep you turning the pages – it is insightful and pithy, and it brings you into a hidden world ... Sane Enough is important, not only for survivors who will be comforted that they are not alone, but also for their families, professionals and anyone who cares about children.” --From the Foreword by Dr.

Michel Elliott, OBEEARLY REVIEWS:“I expected a memoir, but I got more: a novel, a great read, hard to put down... personal and vivid” --Diana Howie, published playwright“Your book drew me in from the first sentence. It is a wonderful book, beautifully written and very moving.” --Sherri Oz, author of “Overcoming Childhood Sexual Trauma”“As for you memoir, it is amazing.

It is so honest, open, and very easy to read. I got hooked from the start of reading it... I love your writing and admire you for what you share… You are truly amazing. – Abisola Gallagher-Hobson“I’m collecting adjectives with which to describe your book: Searing, inspiring, courageous, illuminating…. More to come…” – Dr. Caitilin Stetson, clinical psychologist“You are a fabulous writer and a woman with an amazing amount of courage. Im glad that I read your book but have to tell you it was difficult.

I cried, got extremely angry, was sad, and confused, but after a day of rolling it around in my head decided that I wanted to let you know that your book is something a lot of people will read. You could have been telling my story (the reason I found it hard to read, but unable to put it down) and I was or maybe still am a cross between you and your sister. Just cant tell you how much I think your book is a wonderful thing. Thank you so much for sharing your story.” – Lorri“I could kill you !

I have to get ready to teach class but instead I am engrossed in your book. I have MADE myself stop reading on page 40 BUT I am not happy!!!!! I want to stay and continue reading...I cant put it down, but put it down I must. RATS ! This book is MARVELOUS. Cant wait to pick it up later...“Just called Bill. I said, I will not be in class today. I tried to stop reading Lindas book, but I cant…I just finished your beautiful work. This has to be published! What a great/painful piece. It would be easy to publish it as an academic piece but I would LOVE to see it on the mass market...and YOU on Oprah.

My heart goes out to you with all you have been through. You are a true example of resilience in the face of adversity. What an amazing piece this is....
