My 'yeas' I give you—Part 1

One of the joys of completing a manuscript for a publisher is watching the blurbs come in. I am very thankful that several writers I admire, having read my upcoming book  My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints (due in April from Ave Maria Press), are voicing their appreciation. Over the coming weeks, I will be publishing their blurbs here—starting with these:

"Dawn Eden tackles this most difficult of issues with tenderness and grace. She mixes practical advice with inspiration from the lives of the saints, and in doing so reminds us that there are no wounds so deep that the Lord cannot heal them."

— Jennifer Fulwiler, blogger at ConversionDiary.com

"Filled with wisdom and compassion, My Peace I Give You is Dawn Eden's gift to victims of childhood sexual abuse and anyone struggling with hurts inflicted by others. She offers inspiration from saints who were themselves abused but found healing in Christ, through whose wounds we too can be healed."

— Father Scott Hurd, author of Forgiveness: A Catholic Approach
