I was lucky enough to read a blog post from the writer where she announced the 2nd edition release and free promotion of this book. Having read and appreciated another of her work, I downloaded my own copy.

As the title suggests, this short collection of poems is a recounting of one woman's very private pain. From child to adulthood, you become a witness to the devastating atrocities committed against her in heart wrenching detail. Crude and visceral, PRIVATE PAIN: AMIDST THESE ASHES will touch you and hurt you and make you wish that you could have scooped up this child to your breast and sheltered her.

This book is not for children and does contain a trigger warning. It also provides links and helplines for sufferers of abuse.
