VOICE FROM AN URN: a mother’s side of her daughter’s true story of incest
VOICE from an URN answers the questions asked by readers of Viga Boland’s first memoir of incest, “No Tears for my Father”. Questions like “Did your mother know what your father was doing to you?” “Why didn’t your mother do something to help you when you were being sexually abused by your father? And the biggest question of all: “Why does a mother do nothing when her husband is physically, mentally and sexually abusing his daughter?” In this third book of this series which began with “No Tears for my Father”, Viga Boland uses her mother’s own voice and words to tell her side of her daughter’s true story of incest.
The role of mothers in cases of incest has long been a troubling area for victims and those to whom they turn for therapy. Many victims hate their mothers for doing nothing to help them, while not understanding why this would be so. There are as many possibilities, as many explanations as there are victims. “Voice from an Urn” is only one mother’s story as it pertains to herself and her child. Read it and decide the answers to the above questions for yourself.
The author has included an editorial based on her research and conclusions at the end of this story that victims and their mothers will want to read.
