Something About Me and My Book:
Inside the World of Ungolden Silence
An in-depth and thought-provoking novel that portrays how rape is treated in the U.S.

– Rape is a crime where, more often than not, criminals escape unscathed because rape victims are reluctant to come forward and report what happened to them. Could the reason be that the rapist is the victim’s boss, teacher, colleague, boyfriend, a family member, a casual acquaintance, or maybe a stranger? Author Lydia E. Brew’s Ungolden Silence is an exploration of how rape is treated in the United States and reveals significant insights on this crime.

When crimes happen, we hear the name of every crime victim except the names of people that are sexually assaulted. The reason that is given it is to protect their privacy – yet they have done nothing wrong except being the unfortunate victims of rape. It brings us back to the main question of why does a man or a woman rape another person. Through the characters that seems to be ordinary everyday people, this enthralling narrative turns a traumatic experience into a thought provoking one which opens eyes and asks questions never asked before. Not only are questions asked, but some possible answers are given which shed a different and unexpected light on the only crime where the name of the victim is private. After reading Ungolden Silence, a suspenseful story where everyday people become extraordinary archaeologists for answers that are hidden under myths, half-truths, and mountains of ignorance, the reader will start digging and searching for his own response to the question, “Why is the name of every crime victim given except the name of people that are sexually assaulted?”
