A survivor of 20 years of abuse and battles that would destroy most, from incest to sexual molestation, physical and verbal abuse, rape, and abandonment, speaks out.
I am a woman who knows my past and understands that my experiences are purely lessons meant to bring me closer to self-knowledge and unconditional self-love. I also know that without God, I am nothing. My life was Perfectly Planned by the Lord himself.
Abuse is like AIDS: It has no prejudice. Demographics, nationality, gender, religion, or age cannot spare you. If you are uneducated and unprotected, you can become a victim of abuse. The effects it has on your mind, body, and soul will devour you.
I was a victim, but now I am a survivor, and the purpose of this book is to inspire you to forgive yourself and your abuser(s). It was written to educate you on how to not allow your past to dominate your present and future as well as to accept, own, and embrace your past. Understand that there is life after abuse.
So ask yourself one question: Has it ever happened to you? If you answered yes, then listen to this book and free your mind. If you answered no, then listen to this book and cultivate your mind.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This book is poorly written, even more poorly narrated. And while I thought it would give me insight into working with victims of sexual assault, it merely was a very poor attempt at porn, in my humble opinion; which I do not wish to read.
Would you ever listen to anything by Kelly R. Porter again?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narration was awful. When narrating words of the author, the tone never changed from a very young child... even as the story line progressed the author in age.
Any additional comments?
I do not recommend this book. I would not give it any stars at all in my review, if that were possible.
