Abused women rarely tell their own stories. Many of them don’t survive their ordeals and those who do are often either too afraid or too ashamed to speak. If I Live to Tell is unique in that respect. It’s a real, first-person look at the world from the perspective of a woman who has endured tragedy, heartbreak, abuse and betrayal at almost every point in her life.

Set on three continents, If I Live to Tell is a rare glimpse into the world and heart of the largely invisible victimized woman. Following one woman’s struggle to discover purpose and identity, If I Live to Tell shows how tragedy can become triumph and how pain can turn to purpose. This is a true story like you’ve never heard before.

I could not put this book down.  A story of pain and abuse, but also of redemption and hope.  Thank you Akeela, for sharing your story!

I couldn't put it down! I felt ashamed for any time I have ever opened my mouth to complain about my NOT NEARLY SO TORMENTED life.
