'When Angels Die' Offers Hope to Rape Survivors and Others Affected by Crime
A young single mother's world forever changed when she was raped and left for dead in her own home in July 1993. She survived, but her entire family was left with scars that took years to heal.
"When Angels Die" is Caroline de Chavigny's gripping, firsthand account of surviving the shattering aftermath of a brutal rape. Her book offers hope to those living with fear because of a crime and provides a guide to regain control of their lives.
It was many years before de Chavigny found the professional therapy that helped her family truly heal.
"I originally wrote the book as a form of self-help therapy because I couldn't find a book that offered a guide to life after a rape," de Chavigny said. "It's so difficult for anyone who has been a crime victim to know what to do and how to deal with the flood of questions and fears that surface.
"It takes time, but it's possible for crime victims to become crime survivors. I dedicate the book to those in transition."
"When Angels Die" (Banney House Publications/$9.99 paperback and $4.99 e-book) is available at www.CarolinedeChavigny.com and www.Amazon.com.
