Overview

On the bestseller list for Walden Books and required reading for psychology classes, Suffer the Child was first to link Satanic child abuse with multiple personalities/dissociative disorders.

Suffer the Child chronicles with unblinking objectivity the harrowing experiences of Jenny, reared in a satanic cult, in a life so untenable as to fracture the self. In the healing process these experiences, made of nightmare stuff, are assimilated with the help of therapists with little to guide their committed and necessarily innovative treatment. The horrifying revelations of Jenny's healing journey will shock, inspire, and give caution to us all.

In a story as shocking as Sybil, Spencer describes the life of Jenny, a young girl initiated by her mother into a Satanic cult at the age of two. To cope with the horrors of her life, Jenny formed multiple personalities--and did not receive therapy until she was 34 years old. Original.

    Unbelievable

    This book was unreal, the poor child in this book lived a life of horrors, the author did an amazing job. A must read, but not for the faint at heart.

    YOU WILL NOT WANT TO PUT THIS BOOK DOWN

    I've read this book twice it's a great book.It was a little hard to follow not because of the author but,because the person in this true story had so many personalities,they started when she was just a baby could not believe a mother would let this and do this to her child.It's a great book

    Unimaginable Pain

    I know it happens all the time but it is still hard to believe that any human being can break a childs soul into so many pieces
