The Boarding House by Sharon Sala

Ellie Wayne doesn't just live. She survives.

New York Times bestselling author Sharon Sala brings emotional intensity to an unforgettable story of survival, empowerment and raw courage.

Ellie Wayne has grown up in frightening circumstances, damaged by a sexually abusive father and mentally fragile mother. Scarred and still threatened by a father she hates and fears, Ellie believes her future holds nothing more than danger, shame and secrets . . . until the unspeakable happens, and Ellie is forced to choose. She can claim her life or continue to hide in the shadows.

One amazing man might be the miracle worker who can help Ellie see that she has the power to move on with her life, to hope for something more. If she can trust him.

Readers will cheer for this amazing woman as she struggles to leave victimhood behind.

"The Boarding House" by Sharon Sala was some real tough well written read. This is a subject that a lot of people don't want to talk or read about..'child abuse' but it is something that must be addressed and this author did a wonderful job at it. This was done with such a compassion and skill that the reader is left only feeling the emotions for this person..Ellie Wayne. Wow was all I could say in the end." The Boarding House: was definitely a heartbreaking story with a twist toward the end that will only leave you thinking and saying ....OMG! "The Boarding House" was a story that of surprises that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Get ready for a unbelievable ride. I don't want to tell you too was a very difficult read for me with this child being a victim of child abuse and the molestations coming from a parent...and her feeling that she had no one to turn too? I would recommend this wonderful novel to anyone (adult) who would like to see what this author wrote to make this such a excellent read dealing with child abuse.

Great book about a very disturbing story line. Ellie is a girl that you have great symphathy for and hope that all goes well. There is plot twist that you didn't see coming and it really pulls you in. Another great book by Sharon Sala.

Sala comes through again. This story, like a lot of her work, is not the sugar coated version. Bad things happen in life and to meet a survivor should give hope to anyone. You will remember this story for a long time!
