Sarah's Story managed to stir so many different emotions in me as the reader. It made me cry with heartfelt sorrow, it made me angry, it shocked and filled me with an overwhelming need for justice for Sarah and all the other abused children who's story we may not read but is just as real as Sarah's. Sarah's Story also managed to fill me with a sense of admiration at the courage shown by a little girl, who, against all odds, managed to find the courage to stop the abuse.

It is a truly inspirational story of how the wrong kind of love can destroy a child's life, and how the right kind of love can be instrumental in that child's recovery and freedom. If ever there was a story to inspire other abused children to have hope and strength, this is it.

When i read this book, it shocked me how strong sarah was. Even at the age of 11 when it all went wrong, she came across as very mature for her age. and seemed to bring herself up, she had to learn the right and wrong by herself. I enjoyed this book, but hoped to read a longer book. I was curious to know about her happy memorys, her childhood, her siblings. and her relationships more. But this book is really just based on her abuse, and how she survived it and moved on with her life. She really is remarkable. I just wish i had more to read. Sarah if your reading this, you make me feel that you can survive abuse, and if you put all your stength and prayers togather you can get past the bad. I am proud of you. But i do think you should bring another book out. I do wonder if you ever questioned your mother.. or if you ever felt a need to get justice or answers

This book has given me so much strength, tips , confidentiality to look up to my childhood , I'm 13years of age and terrified of the outside world but this book has helped me think better and know that if it ever happens (thus has not happened to me) and even if it does I know not to keep it a secret, tell some one. I give this book 5 star for all the points I have made . I strongly recommend this book to people who have been through it who has the same feeling as me .
Thank you so much Sarah I really enjoyed this extraordinary book .

This book was a good read but broke my heart. I have two small girls myself and would do anything to protect them. Bit disappointed Sarah didn't tell the police about her father or Bill because neither of them got what they deserved which was a lonely death inside a prison. But I'm sue Sarah had her reasons. Such a strong lady. I'm so glad you've found happiness and is at rest with yourpast. Enjoy life x x x

Really sad and depressing, but also a ray of hope for children who have suffered abuse. Sarah is a very brave and sensitive woman. Was Bill ever prosecuted? What about Sarah s mum and sisters did they ever suspect this abuse? I would like to know the answers to these questions.
