This true life story of an amazing woman,is a story you will not be able to stop reading. It is extremely raw to read as the Author takes you on a journey through her life,as a child,teen and adult.And as a reader i felt every emotion. Anger,pain,hurt and happiness. The way it has been written,places you in Sandi Gambles'life as if you are right there with her and you wish so much you were there to help. The abuse Bev/ Sandi went through and not just at the hands of the nuns but by some men is utterly dreadful and stomach churning. Sandi has shown great strength in how to survive and that if you want something in life you go and get it. I do strongly suggest you read this book. It will have you pulling at every string in your heart. xxx
This book was a very intense read for me . There were in fact several times I had to put it down . But I could not let it go and continued . I needed to know what happened next . At times I wished I could reach through the pages and if nothing else wrap my arms around her and say everything will be ok . The title says it all . This is a story of survival . Instead of letting life break her she kept going ,survived so much and became so much stronger despite the trauma and hardships . I would highly recommend this to others .
