Tangie De La Cadena
This is Tangie, the one you spoke with when you ordered Pure Cleanse. I had life get in the way so I wasn't able to read your book right away, but boy when I did....I could not put it down! Read it all in one day! I was so heart broken to know the wonderful sweet lady who I spoke with went through this, no one can comprehend the horror! You are truly an inspiration to me and I am so happy it had a happy ending. I hope he stays in prison forever!!!! Never to come out! God bless you Anne.

Thank you for writing this and asking me to read it, I will cherish it always and never forget you, what courage and strength you have! You make me see the blessings I have, I have had a difficult life..I don't have family as well, but NEVER suffered in such a way as that! and if you can survive something so horrifying as that....then anyone can survive. You are such an inspiration, I will spread the word to who ever will listen, I feel it is soo important!
Amanda Sue
This book makes Precious look diminutive. I have never read such a horrific story. The fact that she lived through it and raised her own two children by herself is unbelievable. Describing her as resilient is an understatement. Her experience made her durable and feisty as she got older. Thank God.

An indictment of hidden family secrets and a revelation of the strength of females who are able to withstand such criminal abuses. At last! Someone has the courage to step forward and bring light to a dark subject: the evil crime of incest. Preying on young children by depraved adults.....their relatives. Incest is the most prevalent sexual abuse in the world, the most odious sex crime and the least reported. Its victims are always the young, the innocent: our children.

As a retired homicide detective in a major city I found this book to be one of the best non-fiction accounts of child abuse crime i have read.

This book is not for the faint of heart. It is a page turner and it rocked my world. It brought up a lot of memories for me (some not so good) of my childhood. It is a wake up call to society! Open your eyes and see what is really happening to our kids behind closed doors people!

scary. this story is written as if directly through the eyes of the child when it actually happens-very disturbing

This is a terrifying story. Anne's half brother Danny is a full blown psychopath with free reign over her when she was a child! He uses and abuses his sister throughout her childhood. This is an excellent story and a good read. How could someone do this to a little girl. Be prepared to be shocked. A very good book. A difficult read, but one you can't put down. It is amazing that she survived such abuse and neglect.

we should all be ashamed that this sort of thing is still happening here in the usa. This is a terrifying story. It is sad to think that kids are victimized like this. This is a story that should make anyone that reads it, cry. it did me. Danny is a full blown psycho.
