Reading this book should make every mom want to break the cycle of abuse and raise our kids to be strong, hardworking, independent people. I feel really bad for what the kids went through and angry that the fathers and extended family members, did nothing to remove the children from that situation. All it takes is one call to Child Protective Services to investigate and do a welfare check.

The text seems disjointed and jumps from one thought to the next in rapid succession . ..sometimes hard to follow.. regardless I appreciated the honesty and heartfelt out pouring that I believe was truly written to help other women in abusive relationships.
