    1967, eight-year-old Davie's world was turned upside down. Traveling with a madman who was without conscience, Davie was physically and mentally abused at every turn. Using every every ounce of courage he could muster, Davie fought day after day just to survive - never knowing which brutal attack would be the last for him and his family. This is a shocking tale of abuse, manipulation, and bravery as told by a survivor. Kennesaw Taylor shares his story with others to let them know that there is hope. Let the cycle of abuse be broken.

    David O. Cutright says: "Bizarre story. Recommended."
    "State of mind--no kidding"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    While reading this, I had to keep reminding myself that this is a non-fiction book. Although I did endure some things that I would consider child abuse, it was nothing compared to what the author endured. God bless him for not becoming what he endured. My father always said that his corporal punishment was how he was raised and was the only thing he knew.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I actually almost put this story down down multiple times. . . The thing I "liked" best was the author's honesty and openness in his experiences.


    What about Bob Hennessy’s performance did you like?

    He spoke clearly and with emphasis on where it belonged.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me very angry. It also brought back memories of things that were done to me. It did dredge up some things from the past that I wished to forget, but after hearing what he went through, I was able to pull my experiences out and examine them with little emotion.


    Any additional comments?

    This book isn't for just anyone. If you've been or know anyone who has been abused this will cause a reaction.
