Sharon and her sister Karen’s story of sexual and emotional abuse helps us learn there is no single pathway to recovery. Although identical twins, each sister had to find her own way through the trauma, shame and isolation. Neither fully sharing what was happening in the hope that they could protect the other. Their resilience, strength and courage helped them heal and confront their past.
