This book will save lives. It offers a message of hope without being preachy or superficial. It is not triggering or expicit, and can be read by a person at any stage of healing, and of any age. The artwork is uplifting, and the words are gentle and poignant. Letters To Survivors is a book that can be given as a gift, offered to clients in therapy, or distributed by crisis centers.
