Although it is written as a novel, the accounts written here are true as they happened then. The impact and thoughts of the child, women, mother, who endured it all are true. The names of the characters have been changed to protect innocent siblings & children, but this is the most powerful story of redemption & survival that you will ever read.

This is a true story

My Justice, a memoir by Patricia A. McKnight, is a harrowing story of unrelenting child abuse and life-threatening domestic violence. The author says that she initially hoped her book would open lines of communication between her and her adult children, a generation affected by the ramifications of trauma. Then, Patricia realized that abuse is an unaddressed epidemic, and her family was a microcosm of the problems that plague our society. She chose to offer a solution by making her personal stor ...more

MY JUSTICE
"We all have courage sometimes it is hidden, Patricia A Mcknight had that courage."
By Mary Graziano

Tricia Ann a five year old beautiful child with a smile that would fill a room with sweetness. Eyes so blue, so bright that showed love and happiness, those "Dancing Blue Eyes" that I have called her. How they danced with excitement when she was with her dad, and her grandma.

Powerful, startling, Patricia Mcknight tells it like it is, in words that send chills throughout your body. She lea

Patricia McKnight is a true inspiration and has shown great dignity and braveness in writing this book. This book is a must read to anyone who is interested in real life stories, especially on the subject of surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse. At first I did not know what to expect but once I started reading I found myself totally hooked! I could not put this book down literally and despite some parts being horrific to stomach I can only say that deep down even though it saddened me it was unbelie ...more

“I believe when you are attacked, either as a child or as an adult, that you are put in a position of choice. You can either allow it to consume you and watch it destroy you or you can fight against it. Only you can make yourself develop the courage to overcome it and talk about it openly. When you carry it as a secret it will eat at you and continue to tear you apart.”

(Patricia A. McKnight, My Justice, 2011)

With these words, Patricia, one of the bravest women I know, brings the last few pages

So glad to see this true story about child abuse and the woman who fought it all to take back control of her life and give her children the positive influence and safety they deserved. Although it is written as a novel, the accounts written here are true as they happened then. The impact and thoughts of the child, women, mother, who endured it all are true. The names of the characters have been changed to protect innocent siblings & children, but this is the most powerful story of redemption ...more

My Justice by Patricia McKnight is a memoir of her childhood abuse (and it was brutal to say the least). From the abuse of her stepfather, to her mother and children denying that little Patricia is being abused, to the school and community failing to notice any sign of abuse in a child, Patricia was marked for self-destruction.

I found myself routing for Patricia to get justice, for her to not run from therapy, and to find a love that she so truly needed where she wasn't brutally punished! As the

Thank you Tricia for writing this book. It helps to understand what goes on in the minds of people who are going through this sort of thing. My story is much different that yours and I find it hard to put my feelings into words but your book helps me to understand why and also gives me hope.
