I may have won this copy on GoodReads First Reads Giveaways - but this review is all my own opinion.

This book may be short, but it contains a very heartbreaking true story. The abuse this poor lady suffered as a child, at the hands of her parents is simply told but sickening to read. How she survived it and grew up to forgive them is a miracle. But I'm glad she did and was able to share her story to educate others and, I sincerely hope to help put a stop to children being abused. People do need to speak out about this because silence will not stop it. I think the words in 'Final Comments' is very good advice. Thank you for sharing your story, I am very interested to read your next book about your life in Nigeria (when it is published).
