5.0 out of 5 stars Horrific yet uplifting. Highly, highly recommended!, March 8, 2016
This review is from: The Blood on My Hands: An Autobiography (Paperback)
Most stories you read about horrific sexual assault, murder, violence and animal cruelty are works of fiction, the darkest things minds can think of when writing a book to scare and disturb readers, some are true, wholly, unflinchingly and disturbingly true. This is one of them.

How could anyone survive the brutality that this author went through? How can anyone not curl up into their mind and stay there?

For her to have witnessed her father do the unimaginable things he did and not only become successful and education but to raise a family and be a healthy well-adjusted woman.

It proves that no matter what you face in life, no matter how horrific your beginnings, you are stronger than all who try to drag you down and with the love and support of the rest of your family and your friends you will become even stronger and use the foundation of your past to build a better future.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book despite the subject matter and hope it manages to help at least one child know that it gets better, life gets better.

*Huge thanks to Shannon O’Leary, Book Publicity Services and NetGalley for this copy in exchange for an honest review*
