Sister of Silence 

  Request this author
A victim of child sex abuse at age thirteen, and forced into a shotgun wedding after her high school was featured on national television for having the highest number of pregnant teens in the U.S., the author found herself married to a coal miner who kept her barefoot and pregnant. By age twenty-one Daleen Berry had four children. Sister of Silence is the amazing story of her personal journey, and how she went from being a teen mom to an award-winning journalist determined to break the silence that shatters women and children's lives. Kenneth V. Lanning, a retired FBI special supervisory agent who spent more than twenty years teaching about family violence at Quantico, Va., wrote the foreword for Sister of Silence. He says it's “ultimately a story of survival and hope.” Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell, a Johns Hopkins University nursing professor and one of the country's leading family violence researchers, calls Sister of Silence “wonderful!” Campbell was the first professor to place the book on her syllabus. Sister of Silence is being taught at the University of Louisville in Kentucky, and Granada High School in Livermore, Calif.
