Amazing book. Guaranteed to make you think and reevaluate a lot of what we see around us. Guts and brave author, Amber Walter, for being able to confront her demons!

The Three Year Lie is a fictional story based on fact. It is a story of a horrific childhood and the seduction of an eleven year old child by a pedophile who happens to be a Senator. This book chronicles the methodical breaking of a child's self esteem and value. The story is filled with erotica as Senator Damien Preston takes the innocence and subsequent virginity of the character Brooklynn. This erotica may turn some readers off. Brooklynn has an abusive stepmother, a drugged uncaring mother and a distant father. She is abused by her stepmother from the age of 5 until 11. At 11, the Senator steps into the picture. As studies have shown, a pedophile often targets children from troubled or underpriveged homes. He showers them with attention and gifts. He refers to the child as his angel or as in this case his "Doll." Brooklyn defends him in the book saying that she consented to the sex. This is in no way true. A child of 11,12,13, or 14 cannot consent to sex. The Senator was finally found out by his wife, so being a powerful man, he was able to manipulate all of Brooklynn's records including her birth certificate, to change her birth date by three years. She magically became 18 and thus the age of consent. She is then shuffled out the door and has to survive on her own at 15 (even though her age is listed at 18) This was one part that didn't feel plausible I do have problems with the author defending the Senator. I don't think she has truly come to grips that this character was and is a pedophile. In reading some of her interviews, she states the book is 90 % nonfiction. I would like her to realize that the Senator is a pedophile. The human brain has a unique ability to push back the bad moments and remember the good times. I did receive a free copy of book, but these are my opinions. As an added caveat, the author did tell me that she knew he was a pedophile and did not support pedophiles or their behavior.

“The Three Year Lie took me through a painful, sometimes uncomfortable, emotional journey of several highs and lows. Walter is brilliant at portraying the tragedy Brooklynne succumbed to at the age she was while it was happening; a child of merely 11 through her adolescent teen years. While the under sugarcoated explicit sexual aspects may turn some readers away, I am here to say that The Three Year Lie is no 50 Shades of Grey wannabe, but a true story of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse an American child suffered and was blessed to eventually overcome.” Jane M, American investigative reporter.

I have to admit, I was a little nervous to read this book. As mentioned in previous reviews, there are very explicit sexual scenes between the Senator and Brooklynne that may make some readers cringe. However, these “uncomfortable” moments are an integral part of the story and must be told in order for the reader to fully understand the emotional growth of the heroine. This is a story of survival, courage, and determination. Though the book is a fairly easy read (as Ms. Walter tells the story from the view of her 11 year-old self), the subject matter is heavy and you may find yourself putting it down to fully reflect on what you have just read. Unfortunately, more often than not, victims of child abuse (both physical and sexual) hide and bury their past. Hopefully, the Three Year Lie will encourage others who have suffered in silence to share their stories and to begin the healing process; however, the author’s resilience will inspire any reader no matter their background .

The Three Year Lie is a page-turning book for this new author that gives permission to others to start thier healing journey. I know that people of all ages will enjoy this book. Most readers will start to wonder where the non-fiction ends and the fiction begins, but all will agree that the book is a healing journey for the author that gives others permission to take back thier power also. Victims of child or sexual abuse or witness to it may have events triggered within them when reading the book. Hopefully it will show them that they are not alone and can talk about it and live thier best life! Others who had Leave it to Beaver childhoods, will still love the book since the story is very engaging, since we all know that power has lead to many victims in this world. Glad to see this author is no longer the victim but the victor! In summary, a great book that will lead to discussions at different levels!
