    Viga Boland is an online friend that I met because we are both advocates for ourselves and for other survivors of incest When I heard that Viga was writing her memoir, No Tears for my Father a true story of incest, I told her I wanted to read it and would do a book review afterwards.As Viga says on the back of her book Victims own voices are the best weapons against child sexual abuse In some ways, Viga tells my story In others, Viga s story is distinctly her own and no one else s, as Viga Boland is an online friend that I met because we are both advocates for ourselves and for other survivors of incest When I heard that Viga was writing her memoir, No Tears for my Father a true story of incest, I told her I wanted to read it and would do a book review afterwards.As Viga says on the back of her book Victims own voices are the best weapons against child sexual abuse In some ways, Viga tells my story In others, Viga s story is distinctly her own and no one else s, as is true for all survivor stories No Tears for my Father comes with a Trigger Warning Advisory for the safety of those incest survivors who may experience flashbacks or emotional pain from reading the sometimes graphic scenes of Viga s memories.Viga Boland was born in Australia in 1946 Like many children of the 1940 s and 1950 s, Viga was taught by her parents to do what the adults in her life told her to do It didn t matter who the adult was, they were in control if you were a child This one rule, above all others, made it easy for Viga to become a victim of childhood sexual abuse and incest.Viga, throughout her book, compares her dad to Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde Dr Jekyll was the smiling, loving father and friend to a lonely little girl who was taught that she was ugly and stupid by the angry, often violent, and unpredictable Mr Hyde Mr Hyde was physically and emotionally abusive to Viga and to her mother.When Viga Boland was 11 years old, her family moved to Canada, where the physical and emotional abuse continued and at the age of 12, Viga s dad started to also sexually abuse her The secrets, the lies, the shame and the blame of incest that make a survivors life a living hell began too Secrets such as Let s not tell mama It would hurt her If not for you, I would be having an affair with some other woman and your mother would be hurt These aren t exactly Viga s words They were lies I was told too The coercion, the threats and the fear that are part of the daily life of an incest survivor, all of that worked to keep Viga a prisoner in her parents home until the age of 23 To find outof Viga Boland s story of incest, you will have to read her book I would recommend the book No Tears for my Father, written by Viga Boland to all who are interested in the truth of what it means to be a victim of childhood abuse, domestic violence and incest You can visit Viga Boland at these websites which are listed at the beginning of her book

    Honestly UnforgettableYou might forget a few of the books you pick up this year But you won t forget this one No Tears For My Father is a true story of child abuse, written with an honesty almost as unbelievable as the story itself As I read, I kept wanting this story not to be true But truth has its own ring that writers of fiction cannot achieve.Author, Viga Boland, tells of thirteen years of her life from childhood to young womanhood, during which time she was abused by her father almost Honestly UnforgettableYou might forget a few of the books you pick up this year But you won t forget this one No Tears For My Father is a true story of child abuse, written with an honesty almost as unbelievable as the story itself As I read, I kept wanting this story not to be true But truth has its own ring that writers of fiction cannot achieve.Author, Viga Boland, tells of thirteen years of her life from childhood to young womanhood, during which time she was abused by her father almost daily In documenting this time, Viga lays herself bare, nothing withheld, yet no histrionics There s violence and terror aplenty in this book but the facts are simply owned and plainly told by a courageous heart with no thought of or need for artifice.I don t doubt the author chose with care which events to include and which to leave out Still, I believe this is an instance where life has out performed art The drama builds from event to event, year to year, with every dramatic element accounted for, right up to the moment of resolution.Most compelling for me were the insights the writer brought to bear on her characters Chapter by chapter, she explores their motives and plumbs their depths, such as the mother s broken spirit and denial Or was it just a blind eye The father s twisted logic that justified and sanctioned his every act From what cauldron was this monster born There are hints, but who can say definitively Upon herself, the author throws open the window on ceaseless inner rages, tugs of war between guilt and resentment, hope and despair Through these inner trials we observe first hand how a mind struggles to hold onto sanity and a spirit holds onto life Moreover, how a heart goes on seeking love despite there being so little love in her world.For me, the most heartrending moments of the narrative occurred around lines such as I was guilty of his sin and It took less courage to stay in hell I was a coward This book, though about abuse, is about the human spirit and its ability to rise above the abominable and realise its true, shining nature, its never sullied worth For others who ve suffered the same, this book is a beacon a promise of healing from one who s made the trek

    There re some books which you can never get over with I believe No Tears for my father is one of them Every night I read a few chapters and kept wondering that it all actually happened to someone I d have forgotten it after a few months if I had known this book was fiction but the sad part is, it actually happened to someone someone who had the courage to survive after so many years someone who was brave enough to run down that scary memory lane again to write everything and someone There re some books which you can never get over with I believe No Tears for my father is one of them Every night I read a few chapters and kept wondering that it all actually happened to someone I d have forgotten it after a few months if I had known this book was fiction but the sad part is, it actually happened to someone someone who had the courage to survive after so many years someone who was brave enough to run down that scary memory lane again to write everything and someone who had the chivalry to speak up the truth even after so many years There are so many kids in our society who have been molested or abused in one way or the way but its the parents job to protect their child from cruel society But what if your protector, your own guardian is a molester Where d you do If I were her, I d have died years ago but I don t know how Viga Boland survived all this I m not here to summarize the entire book as I don t like to review that way I m here to gather my feelings, what I felt after reading itwellhonestlyI don t have words to describe it There are no words in Oxford or Webster that can sum up my feelings after reading this book I cried from my heart that this has actually happened to someone There was especially one part of the book that made me put the book down for a while and breathe It says everything about her journey What goes on behind those doors beneath the rafters, between the floors what fills a child with so much fright she s afraid to go to bed at nightIt s not the monster under the bedThat fills her heart with so much dreadIt s the monster that visits her room at nightAnd tells her Sshh Everything s alright This is the monster that she most fearsWho brings such pain and ignores her tearsThe one who messes with her body and headNot the monster under the bed This book deserves no less than FIVE STARS It truly deserves the Gold award and I wish the authorsuccess in her work

    This book is a powerhouse of emotion I have read many, many books in my life, but there have been just a small number that I was so drawn to that I had to keep reading without putting them down even once this is one of those jewels I was drawn to Viga s story not only by the complete honesty in the sharing of this deep and painful part of her life, but also by her ability to draw me into her story as if I was living her life right along with her As I read along, I was her I felt her fear, h This book is a powerhouse of emotion I have read many, many books in my life, but there have been just a small number that I was so drawn to that I had to keep reading without putting them down even once this is one of those jewels I was drawn to Viga s story not only by the complete honesty in the sharing of this deep and painful part of her life, but also by her ability to draw me into her story as if I was living her life right along with her As I read along, I was her I felt her fear, her loneliness, her powerlessness, and her enslavement to a life she did not want or ask for The end of the story was so well done, so beautifully complete, I felt honored to have followed in Viga s footsteps for those 291 pages Everyone should read this book And, I mean everyone Why You don t have to be a current victim or a survivor of abuse although I think everyone who falls into those categories would find it very, very helpful People who have loved ones who are victims and survivors will better understand how to care for them and just plain talk with them after reading this book And for anyone else, well, you all live in a society where abuse is happening all around you You don t know it, but it is You do know someone who is being sexually abused, but you just haven t heard about it Everyone needs to learnabout child abuse This book can certainly help with that What happened to Viga can be happening right now to a child living next door to you It could be happening in your own family It could be happening under your own roof Terrifying, but true Viga s book doesthan tell her own story It blows the roof wide open on child abuse and why people hide from the shame of it With beautifully honest books like hers, many broken lives can be healed, rebuilt, and possibly even saved from the horrors of sexual abuse

    Viga Boland has finally told her captivating tale of the fear and shame felt by untold millions of girls around the world Incest is a heinous crime that has been kept hidden throughout history The monster perpetrators have been protected because the people around them refuse to face the truth They areconcerned about their own dignity than they are about the victim who is helpless, frightened, confused, hurt, and ashamed.As Viga told her story, it took me back in time to when I was a gir Viga Boland has finally told her captivating tale of the fear and shame felt by untold millions of girls around the world Incest is a heinous crime that has been kept hidden throughout history The monster perpetrators have been protected because the people around them refuse to face the truth They areconcerned about their own dignity than they are about the victim who is helpless, frightened, confused, hurt, and ashamed.As Viga told her story, it took me back in time to when I was a girl, too scared of my father to ever get a moment s peace You always wonder when they are coming to hurt you, because you KNOW that they WILL, again and again Viga was living in a prison created by and completely controlled by the monster who was her own flesh and blood He crushed her spirit and never let her try her wings to fly out into the world as an independent being Her emotional and social growth was stunted as he kept his precious daughter within easy reach of his filthy hands and mind.As I read the tale of one year spilling into another of cruel, shameful treatment, I grew to despise her mother almost as much as I hated her father The second great betrayal is when the people who should be your supporters and protectors leave you in the cold, frightening world that is your life.Page after page, I was rooting for Viga to finally escape the torture that she had endured for so many years I hope that her book has finally set her free from her past.This is an excellent book for any victim to read and to find the courage to stand up and refuse to be bound any longer by shame.I was so touched by her poem, No Tears For My Father because that was the way I felt on the day my daddy died I had notears That well had dried up years before

    The author s heart wrenching story of sexual abuse by the very person whose role in life is to protect and keep her from harm is none other than her father It is difficult to comprehend how a loving father during his daughter s childhood, suddenly turns into a sex crazed monster when she enters puberty, completely destroying any vestige of self respect and pride she has for herself Just when she is ready to blossom into a young lady, he crushes the life out of her It is mind boggling the The author s heart wrenching story of sexual abuse by the very person whose role in life is to protect and keep her from harm is none other than her father It is difficult to comprehend how a loving father during his daughter s childhood, suddenly turns into a sex crazed monster when she enters puberty, completely destroying any vestige of self respect and pride she has for herself Just when she is ready to blossom into a young lady, he crushes the life out of her It is mind boggling the control one can have over a young child but we see it played out so often the unbreakable bonds of fear that holds one captive I truly believe that writing poetry was an escape mechanism for her, thus helping her to maintain her sanity I know, from my own experience in writing my memoir, that it took a lot of courage for the author to dig down deep into her soul and put forth this story She is to be applauded for her true grit.I give the author five warm hugs for bringing her story to light in hopes that incest and sexual abuse of our your children will no longer be hidden behind a curtain of shame, but exposed for what it is a felony of the worst kind One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life, I think, is a happy childhood Agatha Christie
