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 this "courageous and magnificent tale" (IndieReader) 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.

"When a book comes along that is not only timely, but... makes a reader want to get involved, it's cause for celebration, even in these troubled times. Vanessa Osage's Can't Stop the Sunrise is just such a book".
