    2. Lacresha is my boss. She is always pushy. She pushes deadlines and pushes her people for extreme excellence. It used to drive me crazy. After I read this book, I understood why. This book was an amazing, but true story. What amazes me most, I suppose, is that I know her personally. I talk to her daily and would have never guessed that she'd been raped, molested, raised without a father, in a drug and perversion-infested family and an illiterate grandmother. I recommend this book highly. It inspi [...]

It lays out a lifestyle that most of society are happy to forget exists.Mrs. Hayes, minister and activist, put her very career on the line by writing in this style, yet somehow it worked well for the composition of the book.The book begins with Lacresha's struggles as a child without a parent and ends with her victory over sexual assault by a traveling minister. In the in-between, she marries three times, nearly k [...]

    4. Lacresha has written an honest look into her life, to help others deal with very hard issues. Reading this book, for me, was like looking in a mirror. Her story is mine and my mother's story, all wrapped into one heart-breaking story. Forgiveness runs deep in this book; Forgiveness of others and forgiveness of self. There were times, I had to put the book down and cry. It really just hit home. Thank you, Lacresha, for opening your heart and helping those of us who still need to heal.

    5. As a vic of sexual assault, I've learned that I can still move past it and that one day it may not hurt anymore. That would be a dream come true.This book is full of tragedy, loss and eventual triumph. It made me feel liberated in my soul and spirit. I also renewed my relationship with God after finishing it. I renewed my relationship with my husband too. He is truly a good man. I will never take him for granted again.

    6. Sexual assault is a terrible fact of life and this book brings us face to face with issues most people are happy enough to sweep under the rug and leave undisturbed. I shed tears from page 3 of chapter one until the end of the book. I also happened upon a candid interview with the author at ericanewton.

    7. My sister wrote this book. It was very powerful. There were so many things in it that I never knew about her. In fact, I'd say this book did a lot in helping us to bond.This book is the greatest success story I've ever read. Anyone can go from rags to riches. Very few people make it through abuse and depression.

    8. My wife has always been an awesome woman, but she shocked me in this book. The way she poured out her heart and soul was unbelievable and the responses to it has been outstanding.The way she walks the reader through conquering pain is what makes this book special. She doesn't just tell you. The words are almost picturesque in the sense that she paints a scene of your future better because you stand up and fight for it. Great book from a fantastic wife, minister, mother and woman!

    9. This book is poignant! With a very soft and compassionate tone, Lacresha deals with the issues of recovering from sexual, physical and mental abuse.

    10. This book was filled with a true story of a life started in tragedy. But the way the author uses her pain and trauma to transform herself makes this book special. It's a tear-jerker. You will be sad, then angry, the frustrated, the relieves and finally amazed. Get the book!

    11. I enjoyed the book and was happy about the love of and for Jesus Christ. The book showed that anything is possible with Christ Jesus and whatever you are going through, that there is a purpose and plan so stay strong and look to the Lord.

    12. Crap happens and some of us never make it out alive. Lacresha tells a story of surviving multiple forms of abuse and the power of faith. I don't want to spoil the book, but it's hard not to mention how large of a hole she had throughout childhood because her father was not there. The eventual revelation of God being there in His place saved her life through multiple suicide attempts.

    13. I just won this from the giveaways, so once I get it I'll read and review. Getting it for free puts me in a favorable mood towards it before even starting :)Edit:I understand that this book is a true story and that it's horrible, blah blah. However, that does not excuse the horrible writing behind it. This was boring to read, it jumped all over the place, none of the people mentioned in it were memorable (which made it extremely hard to remember them when you were jumped back and forth in time) [...]

    14. Lacresha writes her heart out in this book that shines a harsh light on abuse, sexual and physical. Her success story is filled with heart-thumping moments in which you find yourself wishing you could have been her savior. Then there are those powerful moments that make you say "I am woman, hear me roar" because she overcame hundreds of obstacles, the biggest being her own upbringing. I loved it.

    15. Lacresha tells it like it is in this riveting memoir. I appreciate her honesty and she gives hope to other women who've experienced similar situations.
