Not My Secret To Keep is a stirring step-by-step account of self- discovery, healing, and transformation. It's also a practical book that will be utilized by survivors, their families and friends, and anyone working in social, medical, and mental health professions who care for those suffering from sexual abuse.
"When you are abused as a child, the result is usually self-destruction. Digene, however, chose life. She overcame the most significant wounds a person may encounter. The reality, truthfulness, and wisdom she found can be a guidebook for us all on how to use our hunger for life as a motivating force. Read her book of wisdom. Let it coach you through life, helping you to free yourself from the wounds of your past, to rise above them and fly."
--Bernie S. Siegel, MD, whose best-selling books include, "365 Prescriptions for the Soul" and "The Art of Healing"
"Digene Farrar offers a rich, honest, and compassionate account of trauma, recovery and thriving. She digs deeply into her experiences of childhood sexual abuse, 9/11, a glamorous modeling and acting career, and a supportive marriage under great pressure. We follow her through the maze of trauma recovery on a journey filled with challenges and hope. A great read that will be inspirational for survivors and instructive for their therapists."
--Laurie Anne Pearlman, Ph.D., Coauthor, "Treating Traumatic Bereavement: A Practitioner's Guide"
