juxtaposed-finding-sanctuary-on-outside-daisy-rain-martin-paperback-cover-art1Juxtaposed is a well-told memoir of a sexual abuse survivor. Despite being abused by her stepfather, a minister in the church, Daisy Rain Martin still believes in God. She won’t tell you how or why, really, just that it’s a part of who she is. Martin isn’t here to tell anyone how to survive, how to get out, or how to deal with the aftermath. She just tells her own story.

I’m not an abuse survivor, so I can’t particularly relate to that subject, but I do recognize good storytelling, and I’m sure there are many others who can relate.
