Sam’s writing is truly superb. She has a way of making a really horrible situation so understandable.
I would encourage anyone that has ever been involved in or tried to help others in domestic abuse to read this. I would encourage anyone who believes they can’t achieve something to read this. I would encourage anyone who has trouble with self-belief to read this.
I encourage YOU to read this, the insight you will gain from such a frank explanation of Sam’s life will help you understand how easily an amazing and intelligent person can believe they can never get away will just floor you.
I started reading with some trepidation not knowing what I was expecting. What I discovered is a well-written book that takes us through some very tough times in the author’s life but It did not wallow in self-pity. I came away with great respect for her courage and determination not to let the bad dominate her life.
I would recommend it for anyone going through a difficult time as it shows that you can overcome nearly anything. You are stronger than you thought.
