Why Do Orthodox Communities Still Cover Up Sexual Abuse?
I didn’t think the book would get this much publicity, but I knew that I would get a lot of hate mail. When people do lash out at me, the funny thing that comes to mind is that five or six years ago, if someone had done what I’m doing now, I would have lashed out too. I would have felt such irrational anger if someone was out there making my life look that sad and pathetic, and making me feel that manipulated and powerless, I would be furious! And I’d do everything I could to justify my own life and why I was staying in it.
