NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER is Viga Boland’s true story of the sexual, mental and physical abuse to which she was subjected by her biological father from the ages of 11 – 24. Trapped in a web of deceit & confusion, the author finally decided to share this memoir of incest in the hopes that by coming out from under years of sexual abuse, other victims will be encouraged to do the same. This is a story she told no-one until she was 65 years old. Even her husband of 40 + years knew nothing of the abuse. But at last, the truth is out and she is silent no more.
This is an important, no-holds-barred book complete with graphic scenes and language because:
that’s the way it happened and that’s how it must be told. Victims’own voices are the best weapons against child sexual abuse.
NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER won a GOLD MEDAL in the 2014 READERS FAVORITE BOOK AWARDS!
