BONSHEA Making Light of the Dark Five Star Reviews 


Every so often a book is written that touches the heart. This is such a book. BONSHEÁ is an unforgettable story that will leave an indelible mark on your psyche. – Adaline Archer, Washington 

I would love to discover that every judge, every minister, every person who seeks justice, would read this book! I have consulted thousands of abused women and know that the injustice Coral suffered, the loss of her children, is an all to common experience of abused women seeking to protect their children and to save themselves. - Patricia Evans, Author, The Verbally Abusive Relationship, California

BONSHEÁ pierces through the darkness that hides the legal system's routine abuse of mothers and children.  It is a work of immense courage, a true tale of heartbreak and salvation. - Maureen T. Hannah, Ph.D. Chair, Battered Mother's Custody Conference, Albany, New York

BONSHEA - Yaqui Indian – meaning

‘out of the darkness into the light’

"I recommend this book for health care providers, those in the criminal justice system, and volunteers or helpers of any kind to get insights and clarity about the complex dynamics of domestic violence and its toxic effects to individuals and society-and what needs to be done to eradicate this pandemic problem."

– Barbara A. May, PhD, RN PMHP, Professor of Nursing,                                    Linfield College, Portland, Oregon

During my marriage I was required to be a "helpmeet" in a world like the one from  Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel "The Handmaiden’s Tale.

My abuser used coercive control, isolation and intimidation tactics to strip me of my personhood, safety and freedoms as a United States citizen.

Domestic violence is a crime. It is a complex problem with roots in an oppressively hierarchical, patriarchal violence-accepting society. Yet, fundamental evangelical Christian movements (cults) that thrive today refuse to speak out against domestic violence, rape, incest and abuse because their doctrines are the foundation for conditioning women and children to accept abuse.

Coral Anika Theill's published works address abuse and trauma recovery and most recently, wounded Marines and Montford Point Marines. Her writings have encouraged and inspired numerous trauma victims and wounded Marines and service members recovering from PTS and TBI. Coral's positive insights as a survivor have also earned the respect of clinical therapists, advocates, professors and authors.
