Loved it. I felt really sorry for all the times her dad abused her.

This is a very well done book on how to deal with a subject a lot of people would have a hard time dealing with. Child incest is alive out there and we still seem to over look a lot of things. Maria has written a very sad but true story on this subject and you will find yourself unable to put this down. Really just a great in sight to the world a lot of us refuse to look at. Thanks for the great read.
