    Your beautifully written explanation of why you had kept your abuse secret for so many years brought tears to my eyes as I read John’s proclamation of love for you when he learned the truth.
    It was quite understandable that you would keep your abuse secret while your father was alive and you and your husband were still seeing him socially.

    It is interesting how Victoria had an inkling that something had been wrong between you and your father. I know she is very bright and picks up on things quickly. I am very glad she persuaded you to write your books. I’m sure all your readers will now fully understand why you kept your secret for so long.

    Viga, having read your first book, I already knew. However, this is a lovely way to end the second book.

    Thanks for sharing, Viga. Having read both books I was aware of this, but seeing it put this way clarifies it even further. I cannot begin to imagine what torture you have gone through internally, emotionally both during the incest, and the many years afterwards, keeping it inside, but then having the guts to relive it as you wrote about it, and then being able to talk about it to strangers. Bravo, Viga.
