Description

I’ve spent many years healing over the trauma of sexual assault committed after falling prey to such charisma. But until I read Bluhm’s book I had almost forgotten about other traumatic stories from my life—the insidious stories of workplace harassment and the harrowing consequences of speaking up on behalf of myself and others. Women's voices are still far too often ubiquitously silenced when it comes to male abuse of power. Even with as much progress as has been made in advancing women's rights, there is still more work to be done to completely shatter glass ceilings for women violated by men with power. In her new book, Prey Tell, Tiffany Bluhm discusses many of the nuances of how and why women are silenced, and how institutions and individuals must better support those who experience abuse at the hands of men with power. She rightly calls out many of the wrong tactics that are used to continue to silence and oppress women who have been abused. For too long the voices of women and girls who suffer violence have been marginalized, ignored, or worse, silenced within communities of faith and beyond. The global church has all too often stood by while the stories of the suffering of women at the hands of powerful abusers went untold. Tiffany Bluhm has lived this silence and out of the ashes written a clarion call to action, challenging our culture of deafening silence with her story and wisdom. Prey Tell is an absolute must-read book for our age, breathing courage into survivor and ally alike--reminding the world that silence is not spiritual, and action is not optional." After some self-reflection, she knows that despite being compatible on paper, Dylan doesn’t make her heart race. In a bold move, she puts herself out there one more time.

Ms. Bluhm speaks directly to the Christian church, which has since the Biblical times silenced women who were abused, whose names were tainted in history due to men in authority taking advantage of them. Today, we still see in the news powerful pastors and church leaders who have preyed upon women. She asks us to speak up, like Nathan in 2 Samuel who spoke up to authority (King David) and stood as an ally to Bathsheba. We can also look toward our Savior in how to react in these situations. When Jesus stood by the adulterous women, he did not ask what she did to deserve death by stoning, he drew a line in the sand between her and the Pharisees (ensuring her physical safety) and he then confronted her harassers and spoke to her with tenderness and compassion. We are to be an ally to women who have been hurt and believe them, no matter what. Tiffany Bluhm's Prey Tell asks readers to dive into why it's so easy to not believe women when they come forward with stories of sexual harassment or assault. She did great research for this book and pulls from many examples from society from the past thirty or so years, but more importantly she focuses on how the church fails in this area. The church has failed many victims and protected men because they are powerful and charismatic. Bluhm not only calls out these instances, but also writes how we can and should do better. The quote above represents just one of the gut-punching passages within Prey Tell, written by Tiffany Bluhm. They say monsters are made, not born. He was both…ChaseAs the second youngest Ravage brother, I’ve spent my entire adult life rectifying our tainted family name and keeping my urges behind closed doors.Until my best friend’s little sister shows up at The Hunt ready to play, and I lose control.I tell myself it’s just a taste.Except, with her, I should’ve known a single taste wouldn’t be enough.And then the good girl I’ve known most of my life drops to her knees.For me.From that moment on, I knew she would only ever be one thing.Mine.JulietPresenting my brother’s best friend with a pros cons list of why he should take my virginity seemed like a good idea at the time.I thrive on information, data, and lists, and it made sense on paper.Until he rejected me and walked out of my life.Now, eight years later, my life is falling apart despite my careful planning.Tempted with an invite to Ravage Castle, I show up seeking answers to questions I’m not sure I can handle.Except, a furious Chase finds me talking to another man.Under his gilded, arched roof.I soon learn that despite his controlled exterior, Chase seems to have one weakness.Me.Prey Tell is a full-length, brother’s best friend billionaire romance with primal play themes.

There is no cheating, and there is a HEA. Prey Tell (Ravaged Castle, #1) by Amanda Richardson – eBook Details Nancy Beach, leadership coach, Slingshot Group; author of Gifted to Lead: The Art of Leading as a Woman in the ChurchBluhm writes about how this power imbalance often forces women into silence. They must keep their stories silent or face the loss of the job, finances, and reputation. She relates to readers the story of Christine Blasey Ford, whose long-kept secret of sexual assault was brought into the national limelight largely against her will and has negatively impacted her. Women often stay silent because speaking out is worse. (And if a Republican example offends you, consider the lifelong effect Bill Clinton’s adultery has had on Monica Lewinsky—and how little it has had on Clinton. This is a contemporary billionaire, brothers bestfriends romance and when I say I ate it up, I ate it up.

In Prey Tell, Tiffany Bluhm brings passion, insightful research, and biblical conviction to the problem of the harassment, manipulation, and silencing of women. As one who has experienced this treatment while also finding healing and wholeness on the other side, Tiffany is uniquely positioned to help the reader understand not only why and how this abuse happens but also the practical actions each one of us can take to stop it. As a man who serves in leadership, this book will help me to serve as an advocate for the women around me." Prey Tell is undeniably well-researched, but it also comes from personal experience. In the opening chapter, Bluhm recounts the terror of spotting her sexual abuser in public – the person she spent so long trying to avoid entirely – as well as the racially-charged mistreatment she experienced as an adopted child from East India. Prey Tell is a book borne out of the #MeToo and #ChurchToo movements. Tiffany Bluhm crosses the realm of secular and religious, conservative and liberal, pointing the finger at how society—US society in particular—tends to cover up sexual abuse and sexual harassment and what we must to right these devastating wrongs.

Advance Praise

Early morning: Some people find that reading in the morning helps them start their day with a positive and productive mindset. Presenting my brother’s best friend with a pros/cons list of why he should take my virginity seemed like a good idea at the time. During your commute: If you take public transportation or have a long commute, you may find it helpful to use that time to read. A welcome book offering an important wake-up call to the Christian community and beyond."--Gail Eubanks, Library Journal Tiffany Bluhm’s book “Prey Tell: Why We Silence Women Who Tell the Truth and How Everyone Can Speak Up” tells the stories of the “prey”ed upon women who have stood up against their abusers and how the world has reacted to their bravery. She (Bluhm) sets up the book in three sections: Why we silence women who tell the truth, How we silence women and How everyone can speak up. Bluhm tells the stories of so many women who have been hurt and abused and how it is our responsibility to speak up and stand up for those women, to believe their stories and to hold those who hurt others accountable for their actions.

If you have experienced abuse of any kind, I caution you to read this book with care. While I believe you will feel seen, heard, and affirmed in what you experienced, it might be hard to read at times because it seems like she is telling your story. This book might also help one realize that what one is going through or went through in relationships or in the work place was not normal or healthy but abusive and toxic. Even if you have never suffered abuse, I believe men and women will find this book disturbing because of the truth that is being shared has long been hidden, denied, ignored, minimized, dismissed, excused, etc. and Bluhm breaks down all of those barriers in this brave book. As a survivor of abuse and exploitation, I have discovered the undeniable power of breaking the silence. Vocalizing our experiences and pain is a necessary step toward healing and freedom. In Prey Tell, Tiffany provides readers with two invaluable gifts: brilliantly excavated insight into the systems and practices that silence women, and a roadmap to finding our voices and helping others to find theirs. This timely and important work is sure to open eyes, shatter barriers, and unleash justice.”—Harmony Grillo, author of Scars and Stilettos; founder of Treasures For those who want to become better allies, this book will present several necessary tools. In short, this is an essential read for pastors, churchgoers, business owners, employees, parents, and, frankly, anyone else with a pulse.

Before bedtime: Many people find that reading before bedtime helps them unwind and relax, which can promote better sleep. I’m honestly so obsessed with Chase Ravage that it’s just not even funny anymore. I love his darker side, but what I love most is the way he loves Jules, she brings out his ‘primal’ side and his softer side; the side that is her brothers best friend, the side that she’s been in love with for so long. He’s obsessed with her and he’s wanted her for 9 years, but denied himself because he didn’t think himself worthy, but when he finally ‘snaps’ and allows himself to have her; it’s explosive.As the second youngest Ravage brother, I’ve spent my entire adult life rectifying our tainted family name and keeping my urges behind closed doors.
