About the Book
Innocence Lost is a coming-of-age story of a girl who had been through a childhood of abuse from those who were supposed to be her protectors.

Those who have experienced abuse and carry guilt and shame from their past will find hope and healing for their souls. Anyone looking for encouragement and reassurance of the healing power of the love of God will find both in the poetry and prose of Innocence Lost.
