Maria Landon was a teenage prostitute with a drink and drugs habit when she became pregnant with her first child. The arrival of the baby changed everything and, having been through counselling to help deal with her past, she then began to teach personal development. Her aim is to help people who have been taught as children to think that they are worthless, a technique her father used to keep her in his power. She is now the mother of two sons aged 19 and 22.

A horrible story of abuse by her own father,told in her own words. No child should ever be treating this badly! All children want is love. The book was hard to read in some places.

Why would you do that?????????? force one of your own fleash and blood into prositution. i think that the man who did this should be put behind bars for a VERY VERY VERY VERY long time. a person should not be able to do that and get away with it. It makes me sick AND BY THE WAY, WHOEVER THINKS THIS STORY IS FAKE, YOU GUYS ARE SOME MESSED UP PEOPLE Im glad that she was able to live through this and try to make a life for her sons

It's a good book...but at times I had to just put it down so I could gather my thoughts. Itt was hard to read abou the abuse this child endured at the hands of her parents!

Why do many here complain that writing these books are sick? How would they know how sick it is unless they read it. If its not to your liking put it down, throw it away, anything but no, you sat and read it all then complained. Give me a break. You physically searched for this book, bought it, read it, all of it, then complained. How stupid. Its your choice to read a storie or did someone stand over you and force you to read every word?

Wow. What a life this woman had. Makes me so sad to read about such horrible abuse. Maria is incredible to have survived this life. Thank goodness she was able to put the father away in prison for a while and that people finally listened to her horrors. Those people who think this sort of story should not be told must think all abuse must be kept in the closet. Telling their story is probably helpful for them to survive and good therapy.

This book is so disguesting it should not even be published, much less on sale. This belongs in the trash. I will not read any books involving child abuse and those who profit from it.
