Featured Book for June

Undressing: A Story of Recovery and Renewal

by James O'Neill

An amazing story of what two people can do for each other if they
can trust each other.  As a therapist-in-training James O'Neill's first referral is Abraham, a silent and frightened young man in a tightly-zipped, hooded anorak. At first, Abraham hardly speaks. But O'Neill gradually gains his trust and learns of the abuse Abraham was subjected to as a child, which caused him to hide away from the world - barely sleeping, too afraid to get undressed even in the shower. Over the many years they meet, Abraham's bravery inspires O'Neill to confront his own complicated past.
