The Wounds That Don’t Bleed by Paige Hawk

“Attending a conservative college isn’t easy for two hippies in the 1960s, but at least they have each other. While June comes to terms with her identity as a nonconformist, her boyfriend, Pat, is raped.  As Pat struggles to cope with what happened, June is distressed by his increasingly toxic habits and post traumatic episodes. Together they must learn how to address his pain, or risk losing each other forever.”


 alienhawk: “five out of five would read again. I loved the imagery. There were so many scenes that I saw and thought ‘man I wish I was there doing that’ Also I liked how she represented men being raped. Its not  a topic many people talk about. It was refreshing to see it out in the open and being handled professionally. 

cosmicarkhamprincess: I loved this book. It felt different, in a good way, than other books in this genre. Would definitely read it again and recommend to a friend,

Sher-Lynn: The characters Pat and June were so relatable. I could see bits and pieces of myself in both of them. Since they were highly likeable it made it hard to read about the pain and suffering they both had to go through. It was really well done though. Very realistic and really showed what PTSD can look like as well as the lengths some will go to to get rid of symptoms.  More importantly, it humanized the being suffering from it. You don’t see him as a symptom you see him as a human being.
