Wow! What a story! Sydney is definitely the world's strongest fighter.

The story starts out gripping. It immediately grabs your attention & draws you in. I was so caught up in Sydney's ordeal that I seriously could not put this book down. That poor girl went through hell.

I love that Sydney acknowledged that those few acts of kindness shown to her by complete strangers were what built her into the woman she became. Just as I love that Sydney loved Elizabeth despite the circumstances of her ex
Not the most well written book but a deeply moving story. Sydney may be one of the strongest MC's I've read about.
What a amazing story. Once I began reading I just couldn't stop. The story does not have a single page that is not captivating. At the end of the book I was sad that I had read all of it, I wanted to keep reading about Sydney's life.

I will recommend this book to all of my friends.

This was a great read. It was different from my normal genre but within a few pages I was captivated. My heart broke and I cried and then I found myself crying tears of joy as the book closed. What a great story.

Not bad for a first book but it could have used a little more development. All and all I enjoyed it.
A heart-warming tale of overcoming abuse and finding happiness and fulfillment in life.
Story of the escape from abuse and how unexpecting people help.
