Rape The Silencer: Good Girls Don’t Tell Until Now
Winslow’s book covers serious subjects that expose domestic and marital violence, mental cruelty and illness, childhood innocence, sexual abuse, predators, adolescent abuse, spiritual awareness, development, and leadership.” ~ Tracey Bond, Book Compilation/Consultant at Pullpenz.com for Author Valessa Winslow’s Rape The Silencer: Good Girls Don’t Tell Until Now.
Winslow was a victim of rape, violence, and domestic abuse. Her grandmother had become her “saving grace” after her mother who was also abused, by her stepfather, suffered severe mental illnesses as a result of the domestic abuse. Winslow still has more to share.
On Thanksgiving (2003) her husband committed suicide leaving his adolescent daughter (12yrs old) and twin sons (7yrs old) behind. With her back against the wall and no one in her circle to help her, Winslow knew she had to pull herself up from her own bootstraps and take charge of her life. “Let go of the wheel; it’s your time now” is what she heard distinctly in her head; followed by “you’ve done enough, time to let go.”
Rape The Silencer Work The Book: A Companion Book For Rape The Silencer: Good Girls Don’t Tell Until Now
Winslow’s “Work the Book” companion to her true story “Rape The Silencer: Good Girls Don’t Tell Until Now” is the follow-publication that leads the abuse survivor toward self-help mental, emotional and spiritual aftercare exercises critically urged by the author to put to paper, heal and share for identity and purpose transformation. Opening with a letter from the author, this creative “workbook” recommends its use individually, as a private guide or group study with others affected by all kinds of domestic violence.
Winslow adopted a healthy lifestyle change which included running, exercising, and writing. Facebook became her outlet in reaching, helping, and healing others through her story. She currently is hosting, traveling from city to city providing workshops and seminars.
