This book is raw in its honesty. Toni truly demonstrates her resilience by overcoming time and again that with a lot work and self-reflection you can come out the other side. It is well written and whilst the subject matter is difficult it is easy to read. It is well researched and referenced directing readers to sites for more help.
I can highly recommend this read but be prepared for a subject matter that at time is difficult to comprehend how one person can suffer so much at the hands of others and can rise above to go on and thrive

As an author myself, I frequently connect with other authors to read their work. I didn’t expect to be so riveted with her personal story of tragedy and triumph over her dire circumstances. As I kept reading her story, I became distraught with the pain she went through time and time again. I had great empathy for her, and I hoped by the time I finished her book, I would see her triumph. I was not disappointed. I would recommend this book for anyone, but more particularly for those who have suffered verbal, physical and sexual abuse. I have read many great books in my life, but Toni’s book has vaulted near the top of my list. - Thomas A Russell

Hi Toni.  I read your book yesterday.  Wow.  I am struggling to put into words how it affected me. You just never know what is going on with people behind closed doors do you.  I am so astounded by your strength and courage and how much healing you have had to do on a personal level at the same time trying to get the kids through. I now look forward to your future endeavours. - Sharon S

“Hi Toni, dearest Toni, I finished your book and I have no words - except I do😃. I am even more in awe of your resilience and having the capacity within yourself to overcome such horrendous events in your life, put them in a place where you can deal with them and go on to lead such, what I am imagining is a brand new beginning. My heart goes out to you, your daughter and your family. Many would have succumbed to a downward spiral of self-destruction. - Helen Mc

“Wow!  What a rollercoaster of a book!  Congratulations!

I loved your honesty and 'real' approach to your story.  No excuses, just thoughts as to why things may have happened.  I'm sure that it will be a great comfort for anyone who is going through a tough time, particularly if it is in any way like your story.

Thank you so much for sharing your journey.  I read it over two nights - it really is a page turner.” - Viv
