Troubled by Unwanted 'Sanctuary'

July 12, 1991

Thank you for Robin Abcarian's "Sanctuary for a Troubled Soul," an uplifting story--beautifully written--about one woman's survival of childhood sexual abuse.

Women today have so few positive role models. We generally muddle through, fixing our identities on male versions of power until an inner realization or external tragedy makes us wake up to the beauty inside us under the pain.

Pat Donovan's life is a heroic journey that shows us that we can overcome horrific childhoods and that woman's true power lies within her spirituality and celebration of the feminine. I'm so relieved that you selected a writer equal to the task of communicating the sheer beauty of this woman's life.
