I am the only daughter of 5 and the scapegoat of my mother's abuse. I connect with every thought, feeling and experience. My abuse started at 8yrs and my mother died two years ago. I feel like I have just read my story. Cathartic and healing. Thank you Tuesday

This continues from "call me Tuesday". it's again very well written. Tuesday continues her life and continues to be an inspiration to us all. She had an abusive childhood and now a controlling husband whom she manages to get away from. Where others may have given up she continues to better herself and deal with her dilemmas. I'm glad she has found happiness and if anyone deserves it this lady truly does.

I read this after reading Call me Tuesday and it was a great read. If anyone is thinking of buying this book I definitely recommend that they buy Call me Tuesday first. Both books are sad and moving and hard to put down (just one more page kind of thing) The author has been through hell but has come out the other end and is such a strong lady.

Sad and heart ranching account of a young girls story of abuse and how it has effected her through out her life. As she still trying to find answers to why her mother choices her to abuse.
Answers that she will probably never find.

This was a very sad story with the fact that it was based on a true story makes it more heart rendering. This is the reality of child abuse that some unfortunate children are living with. .

Thought the book was quite good. It was probably something I would not recommend to others as it is an acquired taste. You need to like to read this sort of book
