Praise for Voices of Hope
In this honest, heartfelt memoir, Kristine Irwin recounts her journey from rape victim to rape survivor. Irwin was a virgin when she was raped by an acquaintance. The brutal act would affect her behavior and lifestyle choices for years, and greatly impact her family and close friends. Yet Irwin would also find the strength to move on with her life, and the courage to come forward and speak frankly about her experience. “Voices of Hope” is a must-read for all. It is an important contribution to the understanding that when it comes to rape, the victim is never to blame, and every victim has the right to a new lease on life.

Kristine’s story and words are a remarkable reminder of the long journey required to overcome and triumph over rape. Voices of Hope illustrates in so many ways how we are all affected by just one act of violence, and reminds us that we must come together as a community to change our culture and end the prevalence of sexual violence.

Voices of Hope founder Kristine Irwin has taken brutal violence and turned it into a movement of positive force. This book is compelling, inspirational and important.
