Code of Silence: Another Voice Speaking Out on Childhood Abuse
Predators exist in all walks of life: young, old, rich, poor, blue collar, white collar, race, creed, religion--they're everywhere, and they don't want to be caught. Sexual predators destroy children's lives and leave an indelible mark on the adult survivor of the abuse--until that survivor speaks out.

October 1, 2009 (FPRC) -- Code of Silence: Beneath the American Dream is Jenny Miller's chronicle of the devastating effects of being abused as a child. The predators in her life not only destroyed her childhood, they left her scarred and broken until she thought there was:
"No Way Out"
"They call it a disease of isolation
this desolate feeling that besets my heart
alone or in a crowd . . ." excerpt from Code of Silence
Miller found a way out and expresses it poignantly in Code of Silence. She uses poetry as her form of expression in this deep, painful and thoughtful book. Her images shock, move and inspire readers. One Amazon reader said, "I highly recommend this book for those who also have a voice that needs to be heard and for those who think they don't. Certainly this book is a testament to all that a journey through and beyond one's horrific past is possible."
Code of Silence is part of Jenny's plan to bring a light of hope to survivors and their families and friends. She's been a public speaker for the past ten years and is developing a presentation of her poetry which she hopes to bring to women's groups, social service agencies, schools, self-help groups and, of course, other survivors of childhood abuse.
Code of Silence is available at Create Space and Amazon.com.
Jenny Miller is also available to speak to organizations and groups interested in helping others move from the darkness of abuse into the light of joyful living.
