Book Description

"There was nothing I could do."

A gripping true story about the twelve year old brother who is violently battered, bloodied and bruised by his heartless stepfather.

He witnessed violence, cruelty and neglect on a daily basis. He wanted to fight back, protect his younger brother and defend his mother. All goes horribly wrong when he attempts to confront his violent stepfather and the full horror is unleashed.

From the older brother's perspective comes the story of the violent stepfather 2 shedding light on horrific events that went on behind closed doors and a seemingly normal house. How despair, regret and fear become one.

A shocking true story.

“Unbelievable that this man is actually roaming freely, another amazing read with an interesting twist to be able to see the story unfold from the brother’s perspective. As a writer and mother, I felt every emotion coursing through me as I wiped away my tears reading this harrowing true story” Joan Johns (Author)

WARNING: This book is based upon a true story of child abuse, and as such contains passages that some readers may find disturbing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars HEART-BREAKING & FIVE STARS 20 April 2014
    By roberta
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This story was equally as good as the first, the horrific abuse continued in this chilling story based on the older brother's perspective, the daily violence from the stepfather was cruel, heart-breaking and emotional. In particular the way he had made the family live in such fear was unbelievable.

    I found that this story made me so angry, the writing allowed me to feel every punch and every kick that the children suffered. He truly was a vile man and I commend Scott B Salvatore for overcoming his past and enlightening us upon the life his family had. I look forward to further stories from Salvatore. Highly recommend, five stars, brilliant.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Such a sad story. 26 Feb. 2014
    By joy
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Such a sad and brilliant book. Unimaginable that such abuse and violence happened for so long. I enjoyed both the first and this second Violent Stepfather story. I could hardly see to read by the end of the story, as I was crying so much. I felt the pain, violence, and raw emotion the author had portrayed. Can't wait for more stories from Scott B Salvatore.

    5.0 out of 5 stars left me speechless, 28 Feb. 2014
    By Zoe
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This story is brilliant left me speechless how can a twisted mind of a stepfather can do such horrific things to what he calls family, but at least through the strengths of the mum and 2 boys, who end up safe and happy, it has left me speechless. Strongly recommend

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 24 Feb. 2014
    By Trev
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The unimaginable cruelty continues in this second instalment of the Violent Stepfather. I couldn't put this down, traumatic horror from start to finish, how a man could physically abuse two children and his wife in such a way sends chills down my spine. This story had me on the edge of my seat on several occasions, every chapter ends leaving me wanting to find out more.

    I loved the paragraph about the robin, the way the boy explains how the tiny bird risks life and death for its young, yet his stepfather wouldn't even look at him without slanderous abuse and violence.

    Really is sickening to know this is a true story. I'm glad you and your family managed to escape away from it all eventually.

    I would recommend this to anyone.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Brilliant Story 24 Feb. 2014
    By Karen
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This was simply brilliant, being able to witness the story through the eyes of the older brother. Made me so angry that this wasn't picked up on in school by teachers. Some horrific experiences both the mother and sons had to deal with.

    This answered many questions that had arisen from the first story while providing an incredible story that follows the older brother. Some of the punishments the stepfather used were barbaric and horrendous. He was truly a vile man. I very much enjoyed both stories and can't wait for further stories from Scott B Salvatore.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Hard hitting but couldn't put it down 25 Feb. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    After reading the first book i thought i knew all there was to know about this cruel evil man, but i was wrong after reading this second book my mind struggled to understand the evilness of this one man towards this family. Again i couldn't hold back the tears as these poor boys and their mum endured something no one should in this life or the next. Strong, powerful and touching words which once read should send shovers down your spine. Amazing read x

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another moving installment 20 Mar. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The second installment of 'The Violent Stepfather' story is just as moving as the first.

    Written from the perspective of the older brother, we learn of additional cruelty suffered by the family through another's eyes.

    Salvatore continues to bring awareness of child abuse to the world. I look forward to reading more by him.
