Gripping, inspiring, harrowing and uplifting.
A real page-turner of a book. A true story of survival and triumph. Intensely honest, powerful and well written. Physical and sexual abuse, deceit, family betrayal, promiscuity, fear and loathing. Under the glittering surface of the diamond trade darkness and despair lies. An inspiring journey from shame and brutality to triumph and success. I highly recommend reading this book. David on Amazon.com
You won’t want to put this down!
From the very moment I began reading No Fourth River, I was hooked. The fact that this is a true story makes it that much better. The hardships that Christine faced in her lifetime are almost impossible to imagine, but being a part of her journey in this compelling life story really makes you feel like you are there in the moment with her. Christine has a unique way of telling her story that captivates the reader to the very last word. I look forward to reading it again! Amanda on Amazon.com
Riveting Read! Eye-opening and inspiring
The harrowing tale of a woman’s journey surviving shocking abuse. On my bookshelf to read again.
I finished this book within 2 days, simply because I needed to know how it all ends for Christine!
It is one of those books that sucks you in and you live through Christine’s story along with her. The writing is immaculate.
I will not include any spoilers, but let me tell you that although what happens in the beginning riles up negative emotions, like anger and shock, it gives the 2nd half of the book even more impact.
You do want to finish this book, because the author does not just share her story, she shares the reasons and lessons from her story. Zee Sharp on Amazon.com
Moving and inspiring
The emotional and physical abuse endured by the writer is truly harrowing and I found reading some sections hard. However, this book very quickly draws you in and keeps you at Christine’s side. I needed to know not only what happened but how she survived the massive damage done by those who should have loved and nurtured her. This is a truly inspiring survivor's tale and the book is remarkable in terms of its honesty and its total lack of self-pity or sentimentality. An absorbing and worth-while read that vividly illustrates the deep and astonishing healing qualities of real, true love! Selwyn Adelson on Amazon.com
A truly inspiring and authentically written book
What a truly inspiring and empowering read! I read this book in two days I couldn't put it down. Christine's story resonated with me on many levels, especially in the way she was able to move beyond her past and become a successful woman despite everything. Christine shows you that with faith and belief the the impossible is possible and that we can move forward despite the happenings of life. She truly is an inspiration and her story not only reads as a novel, but also is intertwined with solid advice and suggestions on how to get from where you are to where you want to be. She is a pillar of hope, of true determination and persistence and imparts the same on her readers. A fantastic book, which I can highly recommend to anyone who is tied in their past or current situation - you can make that decision. You can move beyond your fears and perceived limitations. Christine Clayfield shows you that yes, you can! Diana Blanco on Amazon.co.uk

No child should experience lack of love, isolation and outright abuse. And no adult either. It requires a lot of willpower and a simple will to live in order to get out of this horrific cycle even once. Christine has been through three of them (hence the title of the book I believe). Not only has she survived, but has become a very successful self-made entrepreneur and a recognised author.
I have learned so much for myself from "No Fourth River"! It makes me ask myself - if Christine has overcome so much adversity and has made her life a success in every sense, whatever on Earth can stop me? I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone who feels they are a victim of circumstances, since victimood keeps us stuck in life. The goal of this book is to inspire and show that you too can break the cycle of misfortune and rise above anything that holds you back.
A true story of one woman's struggle. The harsh realities of how we as human being can be so distuctive, not only to ourselves but each other. How we as human beings have the ability to survive and how sheer willpower, self belief, hard work and love can give us strength
I felt I was on the journey with the main character, I shared her pain and enjoyed her triumphs.
This book has made me think about my own life journey, so far, "my story".
It has, I believe inspired me to continue to achieve my own goals in life. Specially in those moments of doubt. I will remind myself of this story and what can be achieved, if you really put the effort in.
No Fourth River is one of those rare books that will stay with you long after you finish reading.
