I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. For those of us not abused throughout our own childhoods, reading books like this, make us feel utter despair that children and young adults can be treated like this. To know that Sandra has come out of this stronger is amazing, my many congratulations to her for achieving so much. My only critisism (which is just probably my natural curiousity) is that Sandra did not include at the end what her career had been. Also I would have liked to have known what happened to Alan, "her girls" & son. Had they made a success of their lives too.
