This book will not be easy to read. It is not a cozy, friendly little book meant to cheer you up and brighten your day.
It is, however, a starkly true story of what happened to a little girl born in Texas in 1960. Brinda Carey’s first 22 years were an unimaginable hell – unimaginable, that is, to those of you who haven’t had your own version of that hell.
Sexual abuse and manipulation by a monstrous father and a descent into the emotional wasteland of promiscuity are just two of the hallmarks of that inferno.
Can anyone ever recover from unrelenting sexual and emotional abuse at the hands of her parents?
Brinda Carey did. Her message of hope and renewal is for every abuse survivor living alone with her pain – and it’s for everyone who wishes to know about the resilience of the human spirit and the power of love and forgiveness.
