Product Description

Product Description

This story is about a child growing up in a world of abuse that led her to become an ongoing victim as an adult. Rebecca falls to the stereotypical battered-wife syndrome. She struggles to survive in world of starvation, brutal beatings, and humiliation that excels to rape and entrapment. You will come away from this feeling the human spirit's ability to survive both physically and emotionally. Revised February 2013 for editing by Adrienne Koch for your reading pleasure. Rebecca Mendez grew up abused and neglected in an era of which society provided few alternatives for abused women and children - it meant just remaining in that situation. This is the life of a battered child, who grows up to be a battered wife. However, despite the impossible situation she found the courage to literally reinvent herself. "It is time to tell my story in hopes of helping others. I am not a doctor or psychologist. My only credits on the subject are that I myself grew up under abuse and later became a battered wife. Although it took me, a very long time I did escape. Now, my life is filled with love and I enjoy the pleasure of being safe and free." If you are living a life of despair and abuse, this book will be a refuge. If you have never experienced those horrors, first be thankful, second pray for those still entrapped, and third read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking 30 Dec 2011
By Marie
Format:Kindle Edition
Such a privilege to have read Rebecca's story.
Her strength of character and determination to survive, against all the odds is amazing. Having read that some people left such horrible reviews and comments, simply due to Rebecca's grammatical mistakes, makes me wonder if the reviewers wanted to heap even more negativity on someone who lived her life being told she was worthless.
If you want literary perfection , then a real life story of unthinkable abuse is hardly the way to go.
Well Done Rebecca Marie.. you're a true inspiration.

4.0 out of 5 stars A courageous story told 7 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thought I was sad that it took Rebecca so long to get out of her dreadful circumstances - I
was thrilled to by the fact she managed and she faced her ghosts in writing this story -
an example of how life can be refound and regained, and opens peoples eyes that this does
go on. Her honesty and courage I hope will help many like her and those who help those in
such circumstances.
