    I am conflicted about this book I enjoyed that it was written from the author's spoken word and can say that she told the story well I just didn't like the story I wanted her to triumph over her grandfather over her aunts who treated her badly over poverty and she just didn't I guess the lesson to learn from this book if there is one is to endure to the end Because that is what she does She doesn't try to change the world around her and she doesn't try to overcome her adversities she just endures them I was left thinking that's it? She remains under the control of this 'family' that treats her this badly? And the answer is yes Yes she does And I didn't like that But not all life stories have a happy ending so I am conflicted

    I loved this one from the very first page The writer described in such detail for me that I could see what I was readingVery hard for me to put down A must read for memoir readers I felt for Gal I fell in love with herEven though I am much younger as I was reading just wanted to give her a hug and take her home with meI guess that just the mommy in me

    Ruthie had a rough life Her story is sad and unimaginable Memoirs are one of my favorite reading subjects because these people have come forward and told their story even though it may have been one of the hardest things they've ever done The abuse she suffered at the hands of her Grandfather was awful and she carried those problems with her into adulthood She then met a wonderful man and because of him and his loving family she made it through to tell her story You will come away from this book thinking about how people can do the things they do and why they do them especially to their own flesh and blood

    This was a decent read I had heard this was an excellent book by lots of people so I guess I expected much Overall it was just ok for me It took me awhile to get used to the language in the book but I would recommend this book to others It was a change of pace from the other types of books I normally read

    This book is so well written that it felt as though I was having a one on one conversation with the author It is a heartwrenching tale of a loveless childhood filled with nothing but abuse and things don't improve for a long time after the author enters adulthoodThis book will make you furious it will also make you shed tons of tearsKeep the tissues handy

    I was literally in tears reading this book Excellent writing but it will leave you emotionally drained


  9. says:

    A sad memoir but also a tale of redemption It is horrible that her early childhood was very rough and you can see that there was no intervention Her step grandfather and father to her nieces was able to basically torture them and denied them resources Yet was able to heal with her husband's family You can see poverty has its place but also the role of mental illness
