The author does a tremendous job in taking a very tough subject to write about, making it real to the reader, and finding the strength to provide inspiration to those who have suffered. This is a book that needs to be read over and over again so we truly understand the incredible challenges some in society do face on a daily basis.

This is a story that will move you in many directions emotionally as well.

The below struck me because I can relate to the anger sometimes one develops when abused, whether it's physically or emotionally.

As the last of the mourners departed the ornate Catholic Church, Emily entered a side door unnoticed, walked to the coffin, and punched her dead father in the face. “You’ll never be dead enough,” she whispered. “Never.”

The writing is direct and it has to be in such a story. Congratulations to the author for taking a very difficult subject to write about and bringing the issue to the public in a dignified way.

A small white kit lay in the empty nursery of Windclan, bathed in a pool of Moonlight and Starlight, Starclan watching. The stars shimmered in her pelt. A skinny scratched up cat lumbred in. She was the kits mother. Her name was Flightflower, but her friends called her Flightscratch. The kits name was Moonkit. Moonkit mewed, loving the light. Both slept. The next morning, Moonkit awoke. She nuged her mom. Her mom didn't stir. Moonkit, worried, sat down and yowled. Her dad, Scarcry, walked in and sniffed her mother. He cried. "Little Moon," He said through tears, "You're Mother is dead." So Moonkit had to listen to a long funeral. She learned that her Mother lived among the stars, and she could talk to her if she wanted to. Moonkit tried, but it didn't work. ~ One day, when Moonkit was three moons old and sleeping, her father ran in and put her ina corner and hastily covered her with a leaf. "What is happining?" Moonkit cried. Her Father awnsred, "What is happing?! It's a BATTLE!"

    Set in the rich backwoods of New Brunswick, Canada,inspired by a true story of abuse, pain and the struggle to find healing and forgiveness.



    This book is written in a diary type format starting in the 1940's through 1970's, with different people sharing their story. Since it is based on a true story, I really wanted to read it, but I must be honest, I did not like this book at all.



    I know the things that happened to these people does happen and it is very very sad. I just could not get into this book at all. It seemed confusing to me and hard to follow. I struggled to read its entirety and ended up skipping some chapters just to finish reading it. I do not think that this book is for everyone. It might be helpful for those who have been abused and also for spouses or close friends of abuse victims, in that it allows us to understand where the victims' perspectives of people and life are coming from.

    This story reveals the tragedy of how sinful choices lead to consequences that not only affect the person making bad choices, but those closest to them as well. God's love and grace are greater and the influence of Godly choices can also make a great impact. So much pain and yet there is hope to be found in Christ.
