Viga Boland, author of "No Tears for my Father", (awarded a Gold Medal in the 2014 Readers Favorite Book Awards) was a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of her biological father for 14 years.
When true love afforded her a chance to escape, despite flashbacks and insecurities, she relied on the strengths born of her struggles and pain to embrace a new life.
However, in keeping silent about the abuse for over 40 years of marriage, Viga indirectly also made her husband a victim of her narcissistic father. Yet, her husband stood strong beside her: that's what true love does.
"Learning to Love Myself" is a memoir of rebirth and recovery from abuse. But it is first and foremost, a love story: the love of a husband and wife; the love of children; and the love of self.
