Still Loved by the Sun
Still Loved by the Sun

This beautifully written account of the authorís rape and its aftermath represents a triumph of language over what is often unspeakable anguish. Still Loved by the Sun transcends the brutal facts to reveal underlying emotional truths, giving dignity back to the survivor. An inspiring story of personal triumph and recovery, it is also a story of love and the tests of love that a crisis brings.

Back Under Sail
Recovering the Spirit of Adventure
Back Under Sail

Back Under Sail describes a five-day race through breathtaking wilderness and one womanís voyage outward from deeply isolating experiences. It is a test of whether Scherer can regain her enthusiasm and passion for living after suffering a violent, nearly fatal rape three years earlier.
