From the inside book jacket:
"Dreaming is a lost cause for a girl in the valley," Mama tell Isadora. Still, when 12 year old Isadora dances under the chinaberry tree, her dreams go far beyond the valley.
Isadora is not the only dreamer in the valley; there are the gentle Maybelle Leeper, kindly, nearsighted Miz Lincoln, even ornery Haskell Moore. But then the Revival comes to town. Dreams are put away as the winds of hypocrisy tear at the tiny valley, pitting family against family and testing the very real bonds of friendship and love.

Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence -- From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror
Review Date: 8/28/2006


The author is Judith Herman, MD. I have not read this book.
This was a textbook my daughter used for a college class on domestic violence. The blurb on the back reads: "TRAUMA AND RECOVERY is universally recognized as a classic in the field of psychology. In a new afterword written for this edition, Judith Herman describes the controversy that has surrounded her work, the new research that has emerged in the field, and the far-reaching implications that this book has had in trauma situations around the world."
