Book Synopsis
Amy was abused as a child, and despite her considerable adult accomplishments, the residue of the incest was still alive.

She eventually meets David who unleashes many of these timeworn troubles. This then is the story of her consequent psychotherapy as she struggles with the remains of the abuse, and then how she goes step by step through the process of achieving resolution. The story is told in a lively dialogue, as if we were listening in to her therapy.

We hear her anger and fear. The interaction with the therapist is sprightly, direct, piercing, and yet healing. She finally allows herself to reveal her real fragility; afterwards she begins to psychologically grow. She deals with transference towards her therapist, of her sexuality, the meaning of relationships, and her liaisons with life in general.

“More than just reading about what is needed in the therapy process -- it’s actually watching it go step by step. There were times when I wanted to join in. This is what therapy
