"This is a wonderful, devastating, exquisitely written book. I unhesitatingly recommend it to all seekers and all those who want to understand the spirit's capacity to survive ordeal with grace and courage."
- Andrew Harvey, Author of The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism
"Brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed, Day Breaks Over Dharamsala is the story of Thomas's travels in India, and of her decades-long spiritual journey from mute, uncomprehending victim to fluent, powerful and persuasive survivor. It should be required reading for parents, teachers, all others who work with children, and adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Or who love a fine story."
- Norm Stamper, Author of Breaking Rank: A Top Cop's Expose of the Dark Side of American Policing
"Janet Thomas's journey, as embodied by her book, is a gem. I have never before read a memoir of suffering and death that so synthesizes wisdom, compassion, joy, and the pure grit of hanging on swinging from the most perilous heights. Day Breaks Over Dharamsala is a masterpiece."
- Jim Douglass, Author of JFK and the Unspeakable
