What an amazing story of one woman's triumph over evil. It's sometimes hard to read, but only because of the horrific things she endured from those who should have loved her. Read it. You'll be glad you did!

This book is the most heartfelt, inspiring and a definite tear jerker! Brooke expresses her life clearly through Pain, Heartbreak, and most of all Triumph! Her story emphasizes the epitome of what you can over come in this life, when you have Faith. In this story she was not protected by those who were supposed to love her, but over and over perseveres how you can over pain with the love of Jesus. Her Journey will touch many lives, because she allowed God to use her for His Glory in the end. Those who have endured the type of pain she has, will gain tremendously from this (Blessing). She is a Survivor, Overcomer, and a Witness to those who have suffered and suffering from abuse. God has transformed her, and because of her story, know that you too can survive! I recommend this book.. It will change your life. When you are able to be this transparent with your life, as she has... Your Healing will begin.

Brooke's transparent story of pain and betrayal by those who were supposed to love and care for her is sure to touch your heart.  I recommend her book especially to anyone who struggles with the pain of abuse.  Brooke survived and offers hope because of her faith in Jesus Christ and His love and forgiveness.

Raised By Strangers" is one of the most brutally honest and transparent books that I have ever read. Once I started digging in, I could not put it down! It is the true story of one woman's agonizing journey from a life of dysfunction and cruel abuse to total redemption. How the author was able to overcome such obstacles and begin a life of healing and transformation is an amazing testament of God's love, mercy, and grace. I absolutely love the format....while describing her journey, the author weaves in applicable scripture and gives helpful advice to those who are faced with similar issues. Truly God breathed from beginning to end!

Do you yearn for authenticity? For vulnerability? To connect with others who have experienced your level of heartbreak? Well, then, BrookeLynn's story is for you. BrookeLynn is no stranger to abuse and failure, but through her story she wants you to know its never too late to turn your life around through the wonderful grace of God. Her writing style is one of friendship. Through her words she comes alongside her readers to offer hope in the midst of darkness; hope of a loving God who restores even the darkest of stories such as her own. Although she has a burning desire to help you live beyond your past, her humility abounds as she explains her desire to help those in need. It is clear she simply views herself as the messenger. I highly recommend "Raised by Strangers". If you have struggled with the effects of your dark past, BrookeLynn is here to offer help.

“Words Written From an Honest Heart”  This is the first thought that came to mind after reading “Raised by Strangers”.  It’s an ordinary woman’s shockingly, raw testimony of God’s redemptive grace amidst dark and desperate situations. As you enter into Brooke’s life, you will recognize pieces of your own and her uncommon vulnerability will inspire you to be more vulnerable yourself. I can guarantee her story will help you see God’s mighty power in restoring the lives of His children.

Raised by Strangers is an easy-to-read, hard to put down kind of book.  The author courageously tells her person al story--a child seeking love and acceptance.  Despite many challenges and trials in her young life, she never g ives up hope, and perseveres throughout by clinging to the reality of God's everlasting love and care.  The author  uses her own life lessons to encourage the reader through difficult situations common to all.  Beautifully written and truly inspired by God, this is a must-read book..           l
