Shocking

A very upsetting book to read, no child should have to go through this!!! Family should be something special not something to be ashamed of

Family Shame

I was very moved by this story. A grandfather to do this to a child, especially his granddaughter, is obscene. It is true that you can't tell a pedophile by looking at them. Most people think that it is lower class men that behave like this, but it runs throughout society. By telling the story of her ordeal, it could help others to get help if it is happening to someone they know.

Captivating - not for the faint of heart but good reference for those who have suffered abuse or are trying to understand the ramifications of abuse

Heart breaking and inspiring

This book was so honest about the truth of abuse and what it can and does to not only the one being abused but also the family and friends. You could feel the pain of the author as if you were there with her,truly written from the heart . For victims of abuse this book would help them on the road to recovery and for others it would educate them into the pure evilness of abusers and what they are capable of .
