Scars Do Heal - Author Interview Extracts

Her novel deals with the life of Sonal Kapoor, a woman with a difficult past. The protagonist meets Dr Ryan Percy, a man with ‘baggage’ of his own. “Everyone needs love and the book will be a self-help book on how to give and accept love,” she shares.

The purpose of the book is two-fold. “Firstly, I wanted to create awareness about what survivors face after sexual assault — from physical changes to mental trauma. Secondly, I wanted to convey a powerful message that there is hope even if the survivor feels everything is lost.”

Writing her first book on a sensitive subject, Shilpa says the journey has changed her life.

.......How Sonal being a rape survivor has to move out of the country to avoid public humiliation-shows the irony of living in a society which accepts the rapist but not the rape victim!
