Afraid of the Dark
Finding the Light after Abuse
by Vanessa Williams
As a young girl, all Victoria wants is for her family to be happy together. But Victoria and her brothers and sisters must endure neglect, poverty, and an angry father. Her brothers and sisters have it bad enough, but Victoria faces something they don't—a secret shame powerful enough to destroy lives.
While Victoria's father behaves angrily toward her brothers and sisters, what he does to her is much worse. Victoria longs for her father's love and approval, but not when that love comes with threats, fear, bruises, and traumatic sexual abuse.
A powerful account of a young girl's struggle to overcome abuse and build a healthy life and healthy relationships, Afraid of the Dark is sure to inspire all readers with its message of hope. Victoria refuses to let her father's misdeeds ruin the rest of her life and shows us that sometimes the only way to deal with our darkest secrets is to reveal them.
