I wish I had known how traumatizing this book would be. I would not have read it. I found myself curled up in a fetal position after I was done. That does speak to the descriptiveness of the writer. In my opinion, the relentless abuse faced by the author was not balanced with a healing journey of recovery. So even though she emerged from the pit of hell, I felt like I was still covered in her shame and stigma.
Very interesting how mind control works.
Its as good as they say... I spent the the whole book shouting out loud "when are you going to wake up and smell the coffee?".
Beautifully written, fascinating story! I’ve loved listening to this narrator before, and she did an excellent job with this book as well!
Once you start, you WILL NOT be able to stop it. A life we will be discussing for decades to come.
Excellent narration!!!! Fascinating story and told superbly. It’s one of only a very few I go back to listen to because it’s just that good. The details all the way to the cover of the book are just spot on in getting and keeping ones attention
Great book! This is an amazing story about the struggles with family beliefs and ones own beliefs. The events told here were shocking, An emotional journey that grapples with loyalty, Love and faith. A must read.
I thought this would be an inspiring morning read, but it was more a story of struggle with very descriptive physical and mental abuse that doesn’t diminish through the end of the book. An incredible story nonetheless, but I felt I carried the weight of the story with me all day. Not for the lighthearted reader.
Couldn’t get enough of this memoir! Brilliant writing. A story that truly touches upon so much. Powerful.
An epic true story of triumph and the power of the human soul!
