After her high school was featured on national TV for having the highest number of pregnant teens in the United States, Daleen Berry married a coal miner who kept her barefoot and pregnant. By age twenty-one she had four children. Sister of Silence is the amazing story of Daleen's personal battle to forgive herself and let go of the shame and guilt that arose after years of sexual, physical and psychological abuse that began when she was just thirteen. Follow her courageous journey from California to Wyoming to West Virginia, as Daleen evolved from being a teen mom and abused wife who nearly killed herself, her three daughters and her unborn son, into an award-winning journalist determined to shatter the silence that destroys women and children's lives. Ken Lanning, a retired special agent with the FBI, wrote the foreword. He said this "story is ultimately one of survival and hope for victims." Lanning taught at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va., for twenty years, and is a founding member of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC). After interviewing Daleen for an hour-long segment that aired March 8, 2011 on The Bob Edwards Show, Sirius XM Radio Host and Author Bob Edwards had this to say: "Almost never is an interview subject so open or so candid about the most intimate details of the most horrible moments of her life. Daleen is a very brave women and I hope her story will help other girls and women . . . Daleen you are a magnificent storyteller." Jacquelyn Campbell, Ph.D. RN, a renowned advocate against domestic violence, is a professor in the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing with a joint appointment in the Bloomberg School of Public Health. She says Sister of Silence "is an inspirational memoir. It's a wake-up call for all of us to help end the silence, to make it easier for our sisters to speak up when this happens to them, and to confront the violence against women and girls!" Since 1980, Dr. Campbell has been one of the nation's leading researchers and was the principal investigator in ten CDC, NIJ and NIH grants involving violence against women and women's health. She recently added Sister of Silence to her 2011 student reading list and invited Ms. Berry to speak to her students at Johns Hopkins University. Author Asra Q. Nomani (Standing Alone) had this to say: "In Sister of Silence, author Daleen Berry gently guides us through the dark corridors of her life, so that we can emerge in the light, as she has courageously done, with a sense of hope, authenticity and courage. Sister of Silence is a brave book, written from the heart. It's a must read for the brave-hearted." Hilda Heady, an expert in rural health, said Sister of Silence is a very important book because it will honor "women everywhere, especially the resilience of rural women and their very human spirit." Readers of Sister of Silence say they cannot put the book down, and have thanked Daleen for being their voice, and having the courage to put into words what they couldn't say themselves. Ms. Berry is a national expert on domestic violence who has written for newspapers in Maryland, Texas, California and West Virginia. She is a freelance reporter who has written about mothers who kill their children for The Daily Beast. Among her many awards for writing, editing and public speaking are three from the Maryland-Delaware-DC and West Virginia Press Associations. Her student staff also received a record number of awards from the Society of Collegiate Journalists while under her leadership. Sister of Silence was awarded first-place in the West Virginia Writer's Competition.
