    What a ride!

    Sala comes through again. This story, like a lot of her work, is not the sugar coated version. Bad things happen in life and to meet a survivor should give hope to anyone. You will remember this story for a long time!

    "The Boarding House" by Sharon Sala was some real to



    "The Boarding House" by Sharon Sala was some real tough well written read. This is a subject that a lot of people don't want to talk or read about..'child abuse' but it is something that must be addressed and this author did a wonderful job at it. This was done with such a compassion and skill that the reader is left only feeling the emotions for this person..Ellie Wayne. Wow was all I could say in the end." The Boarding House: was definitely a heartbreaking story with a twist toward the end that will only leave you thinking and saying ....OMG!

    "The Boarding House" was a story that of surprises that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Get ready for a unbelievable ride. I don't want to tell you too much...it was a very difficult read for me with this child being a victim of child abuse and the molestations coming from a parent...and her feeling that she had no one to turn too?


    I would recommend this wonderful novel to anyone (adult) who would like to see what this author wrote to make this such a excellent read dealing with child abuse.
