Nanette, I felt compelled to write you after reading Denial. This was a powerful book that touched on many topics that would be associated with movies; not with those you know and love....

While reading the book, my husband and I talked about aspects of the book and of the uncomfortable topics it covered. I realized while reading that I was viewing this through an array of perspectives: wife, woman, mother, child, and nurse, as well as a divorced and remarried woman.

I experienced an array of emotions while reading Mara’s experiences, resulting in a resurgence of anger, despair, isolation and fear on incidents long past.

The book also brought to mind a hazy memory from my childhood that I have never been able to reconcile or validate.

The resources you provided at the end of the book were important as I believe many who read this will search them out. As you can tell by the time of my message (4:20 a.m.), this book has been weighing on my mind.
