Overview

It wasn't Hope's choice that she was born, but her mother made her regret her existence every day during her childhood. Her cowardly father could only look aside as his wife wielded her poisonous words or worse, her severe punishments. Hope needed to deal with hunger, overwork, beatings and verbal abuse. She was isolated from friends, her only solace being the books she loved to read. There she was able to escape the pain that she grew up in. As she marked off the days on her calendar, she wondered what the future held for her, beginning to doubt in it's very existence. It takes a series of small miracles to convince her otherwise. As Hope grows up, she knows that somewhere there has to be a happier ending better than the life she is currently living.

it never should have to happen to a child! but instead, like ripples in the water, it goes on...and on...until the legacy is broken. That is what this story is about. Hope yearns for the day when she can be free of the torment that her mother heaps upon her. Day after day, she crosses off the calendar, until even that is not enough to know that it is one day closer to her emancipation.

    this should never have to happen to a child!

    this harrowing story of child abuse is so real in the telling. I could feel chills as I read the story, unfortunately as if I were there. It was uncomfortable reading it, I felt helpless. Yet Diane WANTED the reader to feel that way, she WANTED for the reader to get up and do something about abuse. Perhaps if this becomes a best seller, it may raise awareness so that, one day, it will become something of the past. Sammy, you are truly a best friend to have stood by Diane as she had to deal with all the emotions of writing this story. No wonder you two are a dynamic duo of writing. Good luck to you both!

    I never thought that child abuse could touch more than just the one life...

    but instead, like ripples in the water, it goes on...and on...until the legacy is broken. That is what this story is about. Hope yearns for the day when she can be free of the torment that her mother heaps upon her. Day after day, she crosses off the calendar, until even that is not enough to know that it is one day closer to her emancipation. At age 16, she finally succumbs in an attempted suicide, then realizes that life can be beautiful after all...it just takes determination, spunk and a spirit of survival!
