Publisher's Summary

Can’t Stop the Sunrise is the inspiring true story of one person speaking up over decades to reveal the truth that so many have tried to silence.

In 1980s New England, a young tomboy and naturalist grows among the hypocrisies of elitist culture. At 16, she witnesses the ills of corruption at close range when officials at Lawrence Academy, a boarding high school in Groton, Massachusetts, tell her they are going to keep a child molester on campus - and remove her to hide their secret. 

Feel captivated by courageous and magnificent tale of her ongoing fight for gender equality and sexual health in a society on the brink of great social change. Enjoy a front seat ride across America and discover the surprising graces of believing in the goodness of humanity.

An illumination of activism, love, resilience, truth, and repair, Can’t Stop the Sunrise transforms collective outrage into hope for the brighter future that awaits.
