Grace, Sarah

Ash + salt : from survival to empowerment after sexual assault / Sarah Grace. - Dublin : The O'Brien Press, 2022. - 269 p. ; 23 cm

One night like any other, a burglar broke into Sarah's apartment and attacked her as she slept. What followed was a nightmarish fight for her life. That violent assault blew apart her world, reducing everything in it to ashes.
Since that battle, Sarah has waged many more. She had to fight her way through post-traumatic stress, the social stigma around sexual assault and an archaic court system in her bid to ensure her attacker couldn't do the same to another woman. Based on these experiences, Sarah offers the tools to survive assault, its aftermath and trial.
This is a book for everyone - not just survivors, but their families, friends and colleagues too. Sexual assault affects us regardless of background or gender. It is one woman's personal testimony, but it is also a call to arms.
