As a child, Susan Kesegich and her sisters suffered extreme neglect, sexual, mental and physical abuse. Their father raped them and they watched him tie their mother to a tree, light a fire beneath her, and shoot at her. Marrying at the tender age of 14 to escape the horror, Susan found herself in a marriage that rivaled her mothers for physical abuse. Six years later, she, too, was divorced, poor, uneducated, and lost. Although her life changed when she met her current husband, it was through the victimization of her father's second family that she ultimately found closure.
