    The Year After by Ashley Warner was a tale about one woman s experience with rape.That seems like such a horrible way to word that sentence, but this story is a year s worth of journals about what happened after the rape and a few extra stories from years later There is literally journals from every single day after, all 365, and it shows how one woman has dealt with that horrible situation Her job, her friends, her apartment, the lawsuits, her family it is all discussed and shown to be aspects [...]

    This is a must read, actually written by an old friend While it feels wrong to call the story of person s personal trauma, despair, grieving and ultimate recovery a page turner, The Year After is one I could not put down Ashley Warner has shared her personal journey in a beautifully written, heart wrenching, candid and sometimes humorous manner that taught this reader than any textbook could about the emotional destruction of rape Very hard to believe this is her first book Read it.

    Ashley Warner has a lot of guts to tell about her rape experience and even , she reported it to police and went through the trial of the rapist In The Year After, she tells in simple language and in short chapters her whole experience from before it happened to twenty years after.She was living in low rent apartment in New York when a man came up behind her as she opened the door She was in shock then and after the attack, she could not breath with the man s hands so tight around her neck She de [...]

    Amazingly written Describes the healing journey of the author Ashely Warner who s now a psychoanalyst and offers hope for those who are in the same boat Indeed, past experiences do not define who we are nevertheless, they may very well have shaped us and made us who we really are now An interesting read especially for those who are interested in psychology and feminism.

    It holds you until you are done moving story that shows the deep pain that someone can survive.

    Vicki
    Regular people like Ashley Warner become remarkable when they write books like this The honesty tears as in rips, although my eyes became moist than once into the narrative making it real than the many stories we have read before No matter how hard some authors try to tell a rape story, they just don t get it right unless, tragically, they have been through it personally So, I thank Warner for baring her soul along with her story And for the positiveness of it That is rare Good for you that at [...]

    Michele Duckworth
    This was a eye opening story It shed light on a tragedy in a very unique way However I think some of the details were false or exaggerated I think the use of race was ignorant and unnecessary I guarantee you did not hear that statement at the aid office because Caucasians were using financial aid back when it was called welfare before anybody There are Caucasians on financial aid and honestly, rape victims are not handicapped Unless she was trying to acquire a medical card for therapy I didn t [...]

    This book details withing its pages the path the author took to deal with rape I think this is a book that should be read People who have been through this ordeal can learn one way of helping themselves recover and family members and friends of them should read it too in order to gain some perspective on the roller coaster survivors can go through It s worthwhile to listen won as a GoodReads Giveaway

    I received this book for free through a Giveaway Being a survivor of sexual abuse, this book hit home It was at times way too much and I physically had to sit it down Other times it was liberating to know what the human body and mind can overcome Five stars for this beautiful woman.

    Ashley s memoir is an honest, authentic account of her expereince and healing after rape This book is an important account by a seasoned, intelligent psychoanalyst A must for therapists and those who have suffered the horror of rape.

    Jennifer
    Remind yourself right now Never judge a book by its cover In the case of The Year After A Memoir 2013 , its looks like its title appear rather bland But inside is a gripping story that might even bring tears to your eyes You see, the author Ashley Warner was raped Her book is an almost day by day account of what happened starting from the moment a stranger forced himself into her apartment to the first year anniversary of her survival It s a rare look into a victim s mind during the assault and [...]

    It took me a few days after reading this before I could write this review In my opinion, that s the sign of something truly amazing when you have to take time to process it It s almost like, in reading something like this, your life will never be the same Ashley Warner has done something that took so much bravery, I can t even imagine She s taken her experience, something so terrible, vile, and a million other words such as those, and documented it and turned it into this, the true Year After Yo [...]

    I received this book as a advanced readers copy I think unless you ve been through rape it s hard to know exactly what the person is going through Ashley is a remarkable woman to have gone through this and to be able to write about it, even if it has been a very long time, it still isn t a long time for her Ashley has been able to describe what happened to her and how she has recovered I think this book is a good book for others to read that had been raped and then also their friends and family [...]

    I didn t want to put this book down, but at times I absolutely had to do I could process my feelings It s unflinchingly honest, raw, and feels, sadly, all too familiar.

    I received this book in a giveaway.And I m so glad I did because this is a story worth reading While hard and heartbreaking at times, I just wanna thank Ashley Warner for sharing this part of her history I appreciate that she felt her story was important enough to tell, because it was I also really liked her writing style I would recommend this to every man, woman and high schooler I know It s such an important topic and a very timely book.

    This book has been on my To Read list since July 2014 I was so disappointed It feels almost wrong and harsh to not give a memoir about such a terrible subject a bad review I got pretty far into the book and finally just gave up The writing style was bland I couldn t make that reader character connection.

    A brave and necessary voice Rape culture cannot just stay a statistic or a topic that makes discussions awkward Don t pretend to know if you haven t actually listened It s not that things get left unsaid they go unlistened.

    David Weiss
    This is a gripping read, from beginning to end Ashley Warner s tale of trauma and recovery is written with frank detail, deep beauty and dark humor No matter what you ve been through yourself, this utterly unique book will leave you inspired and motivated.

    Angelina
    A long, hard read but worth it Subject matter is not glossed over, which is why I had to put the book down several times, but, the end chapters give something to rejoice Great read for survivors.

    Erika Edwards
