Kathleen Kelley Bonfilio was fifteen years old when she was raped for the first time. Other attacks and traumas occurred before she even turned twenty. In Inner Silence/Inner Rage to Inner Peace, she narrates her story of fortitude and survival and how she overcame her many demons.
In the memoir, Bonfilio describes three brutal rapes, an abortion, a bout with venereal disease, and marriage to an abusive husband. Now, more than thirty years later, she chronicles her experiences, sharing her discoveries, thoughts, feelings, and the coping skills she used to survive. She discusses the steps she took to address her suppressed emotions and how she began her journey to healing.
A bittersweet story of resilience, Inner Silence/Inner Rage to Inner Peace inspires others to face the traumas of their past, end the pain, have hope, begin to move forward, and learn to live a life filled with inner peace.
