Critic Reviews

"If you are easily shocked by what occurs behind closed doors in some average suburban neighborhoods, do not read this book. If you want to read a riveting tale of manipulation, abuse, and courageous healing, then this is the book for you." (Sharyn Higdon Jones, MFT, author of Healing Steps

"Lily Palazzi's memoir, My Daddy the Pedophile is a riveting, well-paced account of both how her father's calculated manipulation of her desperate need to be loved subjected her to the wounding distortions of incest and how through therapy and the true love of her husband she ultimately finds the healing she had once thought would never be possible." (Catherine McCall, author of the international best seller Never Tell)

“It pulls you along from page to page.... There's no self pity, no hate - just a suspenseful, honest, highly readable account of how a human being can emerge whole from even the worst of childhoods.” (Adair Lara, author of Naked, Drunk, and Writing)

Not a good, but thanks for sharing

I struggled to finish. I really want to like it because I am all for women sharing their truths. However, despite the topic it lacked emotion. The story was all over and was missing direction. I think the editing was poor, I like the narrator's voice so I can't blame her for the lack of content. I think the book is missing more depth.

Good audiobook

Good narrator. Sad a twisted true story. It has a happy ending. This is a good book. One of the better audiobooks I’ve listened to in a while m. Easy to understand and follow. It could make a good Lifetime film.

Wow... so sad.

Being a victim of rape and after years of recovery, it is a bittersweet journey to know others can overcome such trauma. It’s heartbreaking to know that parents can cause such trauma in their own children’s lives. It’s hard to believe that this is a true story. But it is a huge eye-opener that these things really happens to real ppl.
