In stark, elegant prose, Holly Smith presents an unflinching account of her work with victims of incest, a crime that affects one in five children, and immerses readers in the grueling details of her tiny patients' lives, punctuating the accounts with her own range of emotions: disgust, shock, anger, guilt, joy at victory tempered by sadness of innocence lost.

Holly A. Smith is the supervisor of the Boulder County Sexual Abuse Team in Colorado. She has taught graduate-level courses on the treatment of incest and sexual abuse at the Naropa Institute and has trained at the Denver University School of Social Work.
"I've read many books pounded out by psychiatrists and psychologists and MSW's with their dry prose and their brilliant insights into the psyche of their clients. This one is from another world. It isn't a let-me-tell-you-wow let-it-all-hang-out psychology clinical case history book. It has too much passion to be just that. And love: "Fire of the Five Hearts reeks of passion and love, some we would expect; some that comes out of left field...It's ostensibly a book about protecting the violated child, but soon enough we realize that everyone here suffers some kind of violation --- the children, the mothers, the fathers, the social workers, the society. It reminds me of the words of one of my own psychotherapists: "we are all abused children.."
-The Review of Arts, Philosophy, Literature and the Humanities [RALPH]
"Each day Holly Smith rises, eats her breakfast, kisses her three children goodbye and walks out of one world and into another, a secretive place so lurid, so personally troubling that someone once described her life's work as "swallowing poison. Smith is the supervisor of the Boulder County Sexual Abuse Team. Her specialty is incest.
She recently has released her first book, "Fire of the Five Hearts: A Memoir of Treating Incest" (Brunner-Routledge, $17.95). Written in first person, the book is, at turns, disturbing in its descriptions, deeply personal and confessional. Smith calls it the purge of two decades of emotion.
There are no statistics in the book, no solutions, no real theories about the cause of incest. Instead it is a collection of the cases (with names changed) that have crossed Smith's desk and descriptions of how they have rearranged her view of theworld.."
-Denver Post, December 22, 2002.
"Smith's book, written for general readers as well as those in the field, is above all an emotional journey, a pastiche of remembrance of past cases, spun with lyrical prose that lures you into its chamber of horrors as gently as a lullaby. Smith offers vignettes of her patients and the cast of characters that go along with the: the fathers, some domineering and cruel, others pitiful and slight; the mothers, stunned or unbelieving, who seem to have abdicated their roles as protectors of their children ...Smith's memoir is a gripping, dignified journey to a world where dignity is in short supply. It may not be happy, but its value lies in its mere existence, in Smith's willingness to go to that basement and rout around with a flashlight and a broom.."
-Patti Thorn, Books Editor, Rocky Mountain News, Denver, Colorado, Nov. 16, 2002
"Holly Smith has given us an intensely personal account of her life as a social worker specializing in incest, "the gravest and most destructive atrocity to be thrust on a child." She lets us follow her through her workday and see, through her eyes, the pain felt by the children and their loved ones. She also shows us the difficulty in determining where guilt lies and what course ofaction is in the child's best interest. This is disturbing material, a virtual tour through the gutters of human experience, but it may bring some comfort to victims and their families, and it will give the budding social worker a perspective she will not get from any textbook."
-Psychology Today, December 2002
"In this extraordinary book, Holly Smith describes how deeply a mental health professional can enter theexperiential world of incest victims and their family members, and how this profoundly affects both mind and body. It is a great privilege for the reader to be invited to share in the author's dedication and love for those for whom she cares, in her anguish and in her joy. Indeed the reader will love her for what she does and who she is . . . this book cannot help but have a profound impact on all those who read it."
-Onno van der Hart, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Clinical Psychology, Utrecht University, the Netherlands and President, International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies
