This is the book one never wants to write, and yet it came knocking to Me Ra's heart.   
 
She spent ten years working on Beauty Restored.  It is an inspirational account of her journey to find healing and wholeness.  Her passion to never give up on this project was so that others would know they are not alone.
 
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, somewhere in America, a woman is raped every 2 minutes, often by someone she knows.
 
About 16,000 women each year have abortions as a result of rape or incest.
 
The date-rape drug is in the news almost daily.
 
One of every 5 college-age women has been forced to have sexual intercourse. Rape is a national epidemic, and the Church is not immune.
 
Tragically, there is a crying need for this book in our stores. Me Ra Koh creatively, sensitively addresses the aftermath of rape-shame, anger, depression, forgiveness and recovery-with great courage.
 
Taking readers on a personal journey through her own rape experience, Me Ra probes the spiritual issues that arise when going through a terrible loss, and she writes beautifully about her own discoveries of hope and healing.

Whether you have experienced this type of crime or you have simply swam in the deep wells of your own grief and pain, you will find a friend in Me Ra as she unveils her heart.


This book is about life not just date rape.

This review is from: Beauty Restored: Finding Life and Hope after Date Rape (Paperback)
It is inevitable that everyone encounters obstacles and experiences tragedy in life, after reading this book you realize that the tragedy or obstacle is not what is important but what you do about it. Broken dreams must be restored, we must find hope and strength to fight through hard times and triumph. As you read through this book you experience the writers pain, tragedy, suffering, and most of all triumph and victory. Most people go through life not realizing how powerful certain events can be in shaping their lives by ignoring them and choosing not to face them and resolve them, this book shows a woman who not only faced and resolved a tragic event in her life but how she used it to reach people and give them hope when dealing with tragedy. I suggest that whether you are a woman dealing with date rape or someone that hasn't let go or faced their tragedy and hurt.

No Matter How Dark Your Pain May Feel, MeRa Offers Hope

Me Ra's allegories describe the shame, loneliness and pain that I have felt, yet was unable to express...she also shows us the creative side of a loving and gentle God. I was moved by her first chapter where Jesus enters her dungeon of shame and darkness...and sits with her. Too many times we are told "it's time to move on" or "get over it". MeRa understands and writes about the depth of darkness I have felt and through sharing her pain restores faith and healing to any shattered heart. A beautiful book of hope and courage for anyone who has suffered sexual brokenness or loss. Thank you for being so real!
