She invites the reader into her life and into the questions raised by a crime with no obvious solutions or easy answers. We see the dimensions of a human struggle often kept hidden from view. While there are an estimated twelve million rape survivors in the United States, rape is still unspeakable, left out of our personal and cultural conversation. In Telling, Francisco has found a language for the secret grief carried by men and women who have survived rape.

"Francisco...encourages others to start a dialogue about the ?unspeakable' crime. Francisco warns against keeping quiet: ?Evil is best born when it's fully visible.'" -- "New York Times Book Review""Patricia Francisco has written a beautiful book about the pain of rape. What a feat, to have great measures of wisdom and generosity and love in a book that is also about fear and loss. "Telling" is an important memoir by an eloquent writer." -- Jane Hamilton"Electrifying...beautifully written."-- "Washington Post""I have read many accounts of sexual assault, but I can't remember any as powerful as Patricia Francisco's. This book is remarkable for its intelligence and control of detail, and for the author's refusal to beg for automatic sympathy." -- Rosellen Brown"Francisco draws strength from beauty and artfulness and passes that strength along...I recommend Francisco's book for the sad, wise, and lyrically written lesson in recovery it bears." -- "Hungry Mind Review"Synopsis:
In this intimate memoir, Patricia Weaver Francisco tells of her 15-year journey to recognize and overcome the effects of a violent rape. She explores key aspects of a woman's life in the aftermath of rape - passion, marriage, solitude, childbrith and motherhood.
