Well, I knowing Ms. Storm personally all I can say is she was very upset that the publishing company did not edit her book. Knowing that she suffered a stroke years ago and was still able to tell her story as painful as it was. I am proud to call her my friend. So I would recommend this book based on the story and not the number of errors which were not Ms. Storms fault. She told her story and I believe it will help victims of abuse.
I could barely stand to read this book. While the story is heartbreaking, the writing is borderline god-awful. This book contains many grammatical errors and is slightly difficult to read because of it. It honestly feels as if there was no one to beta check this book before publishing. If you are someone who likes to read a well written book, this is not it. Also, the story is very repetitive. Almost every single chapter started off with the exact same sentences over and over, and if not for my determination to finish (I never quit a book before it's finished), I would have stopped after the first 15 chapters. This is supposedly an emotional healing book, and the author claims that her wish is for whoever to read this book to find some meaning or help from it. I didn't get that feeling at all. While the point is to help people, she never really explains HOW. The only "way to deal with this kind of abuse" according to the author is to just say "Not Today" but nothing else. Maybe it's just me, but I felt like the description claimed it was to help others to cope, but when I read it I didn't get that feel at all. While I would not recommend this book, I think that there was a lot of potential and that if the writing would have been checked over or something more then I would have enjoyed it more. If you don't mind grammatical mistakes, then this kind of book could be for you. Also, props to the author for sharing her story. I can't even imagine how she felt to have to relive some of these horrors just to write this book.
