Five Star Review on Amazon By Victory
The story line is captivating from start to finish. This book provides a clear picture of child abuse and the emotional scars that can linger without proper guidance and counseling. Sydnee being abandoned by her mother created internal turmoil for her because of the sexual abuse she encountered under the hands of her caretaker. It shows that a person’s experience in life does not define who they are and where they will end up.
It opens up your heart to the possibilities that lies ahead; while at the same time you feel the emotions of the struggles and abuse that Sydnee experienced. It also shows that nothing is too hard for God – It’s a timeless piece to have in your collection. Eunice you did an amazing job with the story line and the character arrangements. Absolute must have for this season!
