This book is absolutely amazing, and makes you look at child abuse the mental health system in a completely new light.
Thank you for writing this book, I read it in 2 days, just couldn't put it down...except where it made me so angry I wanted to smash my kindle!
You are an amazing writer and woman! I wish you all the luck in your life. And to people thinking of purchasing this book. Do it! You won't regret it!
However once I started I couldn't put it down. I found that this author provided us with such insight to the character you almost felt you were her..
As formally trained as a psychiatric nurse it actually made me question myself. Did I ever treat a mental health patient with as little respect as the author had At times been shown??? Every mental health worker should read this..
The level of abuse that the author suffered was described in a very heartfelt way. There was no way you didn't know how much loathing the author felt for both the abuser and for herself. Obviously she couldn't control this abuse and hid it from loved ones as only an abused Child/ Adult can..Also she made us undersand the hardship suffered wen not understanding why her loving parents didn't notice the signals of abuse..
I definitely felt this book provided me with a certain amount of catharsis. It was difficult to read at times but None of the books containing this sort of abuse is considered light reading.
I most certainly would never describe the abuse scenes as being titillating.. That's actually a gross comment from a previous reviewer..
Really glad the author has managed to turn her life around and I'm so glad she was spared by God to help so many with her tail..
Revoltion, sadness, joy at how Lisa has survived and her own family are now thriving!
It's amazing that Lisa has the inner strength to write her experiences and publish them. I'm sure if other people have been through similar situations reading this will help them with their healing process.
Such an insight into the life of a very special and talented person,
It was a very good choice! As I already work with adults with challenging behaviour, this book gave me the insight of how, from the perspective of the customer, their lives could be, their fears, how some "professinals" treat them and in general the fight to recover their lives.
I read this book in a couple of days, it made me feel angry at times, sad and/or happy for the effort this woman put into get back her life. I will recommend it to anybody that at the moment feels its alone, as this will show you there are lots of other people, families struggling with mental health problems. And to others that like me want to know more, this is an easy book to follow with a very interesting history.
The end of the book was how it should be..my favourite part..it sums up the feeling I have very succinctly and simplistically. At the end of the day, the complexities of life boil down to these simple sentiments. It was very well done, and you have inspired people like me! The author should be very proud of herself! The book was indeed a true story.. but even if it weren't and I knew anyone were to resemble the main character in the book, even remotely, I would be very proud of them. I'm sure it has changed a lot of people's lives! I would recommend reading this book if you are interested in Psychology, the health care/mental health systems and therapy units; have been through or have an interest in learning more about child abuse, sexual abuse, familial dysfunction, problems of low self-esteem, or the behavioural patterns which are a product of many mental health issues. It affirms the desire of many with mental health problems to strive for a simplistically happy, normal, peaceful life.
