First of all, do not let the brevity of this book cause you to think that it is not a powerful, masterfully-written story. It is all that and more. Enter into the reading of this story with the proper mindset, and I believe it can be a life-changing story for you. I highly recommend it to adults. I would not feel comfortable recommending it to a young teen due to the content of the book. There were many times it was hard to read, and I had to take a break from reading here and there. However, the book drew me in, and I was compelled to finish it. There is no profanity, and the plan of salvation is presented in a wonderful way. Rarely does a book bring me to tears, and this would have been the last book I would have expected to do this. But it did as I finished the last few pages, and I could have cared less that I was in a classroom full of teenagers. Although I already knew the principles in the book, I was reminded and convicted of things in my life that need to be committed to the Lord. I hope I never find myself saying that my lot in life is horrible or too hard. May God then remind me of Hadassah's story. By the way, I think sharing the story with your child may be appropriate, but letting them loose with the book may prove too intense and difficult for them to read. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100% mine.

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This was an inspirational story of survival and forgiveness. Hadassah had been through, what I’d consider, a lifetime of nightmares. In this book she discussed her childhood, which to me seemed quite short. The horrible experiences she endured would cause her childhood to be taken from her. Her story was heartbreaking, I cried through the entire thing, so be sure to have a box of Kleenex handy. This novel was beautifully written and one I enjoyed very much. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to review this book and it has taught me quite a bit about fighting my own “demons”. I pray someday I will overcome them and find closure the way Hadassah has.

This lady really need a medal, Hadassah Martin walked the road of self destruction when she hated a man so much that she was contemplating his death. But God works. Never stops to lift us from our death grip, darkened road to bring us into His marvelous Light. He is always faithful to help us, guiding us with patience and understanding, amplifying His precious gift in our lives.  An amazing tale unfolds as two friends met on a cruise ship after Thirty Two years of separation  recapturing the life of Hadassah in a remarkable and gripping recollection of her teenage years and the man who impacted her life and that of her mother in a destructive whirl of manipulation, deceit, lies, rape, prostitution, drugs and abuse. A man that held them in the palm of his hands destroying their very nature.  Fast paced and well written you are drawn into her life and the wrong choices she made but at the end how God came and by His Saving Grace saved her from herself.   A recommended read to those who struggles with the very issue of unforgiveness in their own lives, being renewed by the mind as the word washed over you and cleanse you.
