This review is from: The Family Friend: A Child and the Damage One Man Can Cause... (Hardcover)
I finished reading it this evening. At first, I did find it a little hard to connect with it, but I was gradually enticed and ended up appreciating the depth and the ability of Mr Lowe to convey his experience. I could imagine and sense most of the situations he describes. I found it clever the way he manages to explain the grooming process, and the strategies that his abuser cleverly used to make him dependent and to keep him silent. It is very common among sexual abuse victims to feel guilty for their victimization and Mr Lowe was not the exception, so it is hardly surprising that this comes across in his tale very strongly. I also found it interesting to read about the different issues regarding the eventual self disclosure and wish to put the abuser on the limelight. Personally, I could certainly empathyse with different aspects of Mr Lowe's story.
