5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed yes, but harsh reviews
The reviews of this book seem rather harsh, agreed it is rather detailed compared to similar stories but the story itself is rather thought provoking and makes you wonder what really does go on behind closed doors.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much detail - not necessary!
Having been the victim of childhood abuse and now in full recovery, I do not see the point in books being too explicit. I could not read this book even as a fellow survivor and would question the need to go into detail. We all know what abuse is and is not but to detail in this manner will definately attract sexual predators.

Having been the victim of childhood abuse and now in full recovery, I do not see the point in books being too explicit. I could not read this book even as a fellow survivor and would question the need to go into detail. We all know what abuse is and is not but to detail in this manner will definately attract sexual predators.

Having counselled and been counselled it is important to talk about feelings and emotions rather than detail. It is a pity the publishers and editors did not remove the graphic content as every Survivor has the right to be heard as this helps the healing process. Best wishes Karen my love thoughts and prayers are with you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shocking details!!, 23 Dec 2006
I could not read after the second page because the writing was too explicit. I will go as far to say that I believe this book will attract the wrong kind of reader and surprised Amazon has allowed the pages to be shown. My own personal opinion is, you have walked the road once and survived, why put your self back on it so graphically. I have read other books on this subject and they have been written with dignity and grace without stating the obvious. "A boy called it" "A house full of whispers" and "The step-kid" springs to mind. If you want to be shocked, and read detailed discriptions about child abuse without leaving any thing to your imagination, read the book.

Good book, I really felt for this child/woman. As a person who had a relatively 'normal' childhood, it shocks me to read this was going on and still is - on our very doorsteps and still gets ignored. Hats of to ALL the brave children who have got through this and became positive strong adults.
