No Letter in Your Pocket

No Letter in Your Pocket

How a Daughter Chose Love and Forgiveness To Heal From Incest

By Heather Conn

Incest denial and sexual assaults disrupt a young woman’s solo spiritual quest and her two romantic adventures in India in 1990-91. Two decades later, after profound healing, she’s resilient at mid-life. Finding the love and intimacy she craves, she can, at last, forgive her dying father—and her mom, for her decades of silence. Unlike many stories of healing and spiritual discovery, No Letter in Your Pocket avoids predictable recovery rhetoric and insular victimhood. Instead, it is a testament to thriving empowerment.

Heather Conn’s personal story on truth and reconciliation in the aftermath of incest is commendable and I highly it recommend not only for anyone who wants to know more about this complex issue, but also for those who like spiritual travel quests, such at Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, Wild by Cheryl Strayed, and Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer.
