A primer on the impact of life-threatening trauma as well as the healing power of EMDR.  Both author and reader emerge from the story grateful for grace.

Until now, little has been written to help the lay reader identify with the experience. This EMDR memoir changes that.

Experience Release from Trauma Firsthand

Carol E. Miller ushers the reader into the room where she meets week after week with her EMDR therapist. As their sessions progress, we revisit the family’s airplane crash and feel the suffocating crush of the smashed fuselage where 16-year-old Carol was trapped.  We inhabit the strange visualizations her psyche concocts to set her free, and participate as she moves toward healing by gradually consigning her traumatic memories to the past.
