Overview

"If our destiny is pre-written, then whoever wrote Lydia's threw the book at her, testing her mental, emotional, and physical limits.

Woven within her story is a tale of extraordinary love giving her hope, seeing her through thirteen incredibly disturbing years; only to find she is nowhere nearer to peace "

    Not worth a dime

    This was one of the worst books i have ever read. Keep your money and buy a good book. She tell her story of her life but, i can assure you that the book is full of lies and not worth the paper it is printed on.

    Part 4

    "Publicity," on the other hand, means that the matter is made public, by communicating it to the public at large, or to so many persons that the matter must be regarded as substantially certain to become one of public knowledge. The difference is not one of the means of communication, which may be oral, written or by any other means. It is one of a communication that reaches, or is sure to reach, the public. Thus it is not an invasion of the right of privacy, within the rule stated in this Section, to communicate a fact concerning the plaintiff's private life to a single person or even to a small group of persons. On the other hand, any publication in a newspaper or a magazine, even of small circulation, or in a handbill distributed to a large number of persons, or any broadcast over the radio, or statement made in an address to a large audience, is sufficient to give publicity within the meaning of the term as it is used in this Section. The distinction, in other words, is one between private and public communication. Invasion of Privacy - False Light The invasion of privacy tort of false light is upheld in court when the plaintiff can prove that the defendant publicize the plaintiff in such as way that it would be highly offensive to a reasonable person. This tort shares many similarities with libel and many courts have trouble separating the two. As in libel, the best defense in a false light invasion of privacy case is telling the truth. If the defendant made a highly offensive public statement about the plaintiff that happened to be true, the there is no false light claim. Some high-interest supermarket tabloids have been successfully sued for false light invasion of privacy claims. Printing a private person's name or likeness in a way that is highly offensive and untrue has opened up some of these papers to large damage awards. Invasion of Privacy - Public Disclosure of Embarrassing Private Facts Public disclosure of embarrassing private facts is an invasion of privacy tort when the disclosure is so outrageous that it is of no public concern and it outrages the public sense of decency. In this invasion of privacy tort, the information may be truthful and yet still be considered an invasion if it is not newsworthy, the event took place in private and there was no consent to reveal the information. Divorce situations and relationship breakups may involve this kind of invasion of privacy tort.Invasion of privacy became part of public consciousness when Samuel D. Warren and Louis D. Brandeis wrote an article titled "Right to Privacy" in the 1890 Harvard Law Review, which is the basis for today's privacy laws. Also, see the Privacy Act of 1974 for more information. This is the LAST time, stay out of Every Aspect of My Life!

    Teeth Grinding

    This book is not very well written and I had a hard time getting past all of the grammatical errors. Words were spelled wrong, punctuation was incorrect and apostrophes were thrown in at random.

    I would recommend this book to anyone. This book kept me wondering what was next. I had a hard time putting it down when I did I could'nt wait to pick it back up. I honestly think this would make an excellent movie.
    The person that rambled on like 4 different times here has got to be jealous. I found the book exciting and always kept me on my toes.
    Great Job Linda keep up the good work.

    Wow must have struck a nerve!

    I bought this book after reading the reviews. Any book that has gotten such heated reviews of "Loved it!" or "Hated it!" with such passion just had to be read. Linda, bravo you're one brave soul. Glad I read it.

    Every day better

    I wouldn't call this book best seller material, but it was clearly written by a passionate and courageous person who has had a hard life and yet has managed to pick herself up and greet each day as a chance for something better. I normally don't write reviews (as I am generally lazy), but I saw that someone obviously very venomous and with a personal vendetta posted a lot of nasty reviews so I felt like I owed the world some good karma and wanted to put some nice thoughts out there. Writing a book is very difficult, much less publishing it. Linda, I commend you and hope you continue to write! Believe that you will succeed and always expect the best.

    Highly Recommended

    All i have to say is that Dee who has written 4 bad reviews using different names and sometime posting as anonymous on this book is one unhappy jealous women.She is one evil women that would send an email to the author and call her innocent loving child retarded.That for one is a real low life of a women. This book is Linda's story and not yours. Learn some compassion for child with special needs.Don't take your hate out on Linda because you was not intelligent enough to write your own book.

    Touching story

    Reading this book I felt every raw emtion Linda experienced throughout the chapters of her life. It was as if someone wrote a script and said, "Here this is your life, not live it!" This is story of hope and determination for both women and men. I could not put this book down due to always thinking "what next?"

    Think you had it rough? Read this! Moving and inspiring.

    This story was written by a woman that has beaten all odds. Abused in every way by definition, she has found her way through life with simple and pure determination. Although a book of fiction, it hits you where you least expect and gives you the feeling that "you" can make through any thing. This book is unedited and printed as it was written, which shows the authors personal attachment to this work. I recommend this book to be read by any one and every one that cares about human spirit and its will to succeed. Especially those who have had abuses inflicted on them or some one they love. Peace, Angie <3

    Must Read

    It has been a long time since I have read a book that grabbed my attention, to the point of not being able to put it down. This story is very well written and will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. This book left me thinking about how much worse things could really be and grateful for what I have.

    Couldn't put it down!

    Rarely have I found a book that grabs me and holds me like this book did. This book picks you up and takes you for a wonderful ride. It was an uplifting story about the strength of the human spirit and a strong woman. I am hoping the author will write many more books.

    Long has it been sense I have read a book that moved me so much!

    Long has it been sense I have read a book that moved me so much!! I laughed and cried as the suspense kept me gripped. I felt so much emotion that I could not help but be carried away into the life of Lydia living every moment and feeling every emotion as she did. I highly recomend this book as a great gift to a friend but, remember to include a box of tissues and their favorite bottle of wine along with it. It was one of the best two days I have spent in a long time when I picked up this book. A great week end read that will haunt your thoughts long after.

    A Very Emotional Ride

    Wow, who ever is continuosly yapping like a chihuahua on these reviews might want to rethink some of the things they are writing.... They could be considered Libel as well.... It was a good book, could use some more editing but not bad for a first time author, I finished it in less than 2 days!

    Not much for reading but this was one I had a hard time putting down. I grew up in that area and wold never had guessed. This story shows that
    if you continue to believe in what you really want, it will come. I personally believe that the ones that are giving the bad reviews are the ones that she left behind
     while she made something of herself. She is a very strong-willed woman.
