Statistics show there are more than 45 million survivors of child sexual abuse in North America and that one in five boys on this continent are sexually abused before age 18. The experience can unleash a bitter struggle for connection, and it can leave survivors grappling with a debilitating fallout that ranges from alcoholism and drug addiction to mental illness and a general failure to thrive.
Author Lee Lyttle brings hope for healing to millions of broken families through his lyrical memoir, Wounded Healer. The book unveils the profound yet raw story of Lyttle’s journey through childhood sexual trauma and the debilitating experiences as an alcoholic that eventually followed. He tracks the shattering feelings of isolation and bitterness that haunted his days, along with his conscious mind’s demanding desire to numb his memories of the hideous day when his innocence was stolen from him.
