    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 of her life that were affected because contrary to popular belief this affects your ENTIRE life.This story is just one of many about these types of situations In our world today, it s hard to believe people can t understand how damaging this can feel and how this is a real life situation that can happen to anyone Having just one story show many sides of the rape has made me feel a little better about humanity While rape is still happening, and that s not good in short terms , this book does shed light on real life situations More books like this should be read to shown this can happen to anyone and it s not a piece of pie to deal with.This story took guts, and to me its inspirational Everyone has their dark secrets and past that they don t need to tell, but Ashley shared it with readers There s nothing that can fix the hurt she faced, but if this book can bring one reader out to understand why this shouldn t happen and potentially stop someone it ll have done it s job.This book can bring a discussion up I almost wish this book would have been made at the time I was in grade 12 gym class Rape was a short discussion being told it happens and that was all We knew what it was, was told as girls it ll happen to somebody and that we ll deal with it No, that s not right This book should be given to classes to understand this is a discussion, not a oh well sort of situation While there were parts of this book I didn t like the super short chapters with three sentences on a page that hardly takes away from the story This journey is super important and I highly suggest everyone read this book or a book similar to it to understand the pain, the survival, and the changes that a situation like this can have on someone Thank you for this tale Ashley, what a fantastic book.Four out of five stars.I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

    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 describes the painful experience and what she was thinking while it happened She went back to her childhood and described her grandparents who she felt so at home with yet her own divorced parents who could not provide the comfort and the support that she wanted so much Some of her friends figured out how to relate to her but it was very difficult to find the comfort and support that she needed She needed to be told that she was not responsible for it My feelings are that our culture hides even the discussion of rape leaving the people who are raped ill prepared for what to do and even how to respond to someone who has been raped This is a book for all women and men It is time to discuss this and learn what to do People should not have to suffer in silence.I received an Advanced Reading copy of this book as a win from FirstReads, with a message from the author but that in no way determined my thoughts or feelings in this review.

    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.

    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 some point 7 years 11 years you are strong I don t know if Warner has written again, I ll be sure to read anything she has.

    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 understand the purpose of her trying to get assistance It enticed me enough to keep reading however this wasn t the best story.

    to say that I am grateful for this book would be the understatement of the decade dog eared, my copy of this book is well worn relating to something on each page, this book told stories I could have and likely still will written myself.I am in my first year after, technically though it s been 17 since my, you know and this book is an essential for anyone wanting to not feel like she s damaged or bad, wrong or unhinged this book is amazing I can t say enough about it.

    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
