Heidi Smith is my guest on today's A Book and a Chat chatting about herself and her hard hitting book about child abuse... "The Clara Ann Burns Story"
The Clara Ann Burns Story registers things that abuse and devalue a child. Clara, the protagonist, measures these things by chronicling a war not typically found in history books. There are different battlefields but all wars begin in homes, in thoughts and on tongues. My hope is that the book instantiates the unsustainability of validating truth by vilifying others and provokes questions concerning the shapes, sizes and colors of affliction.
