This is a quick read and somewhat disturbing . . . a heart-wrenching account of a young boy’s childhood, a walk through dark days with an abusive mother.
The book’s message is a frank and necessary one to both those who are unaware of the silent suffering and those that need hope for recovery.
It is a strong reminder to be on the lookout for signs of abuse . . . you may be the only one that speaks up for a child in need of saving.
When I started this book I did not realize it is the first of three . . . the author offers to fill in more details of his healing process in the two follow up titles—The Lost Boy and A Man Named Dave. I will add these to my never-ending TBR list.
