Abused — A Daughter’s Story by L.L. Bartlett. Publisher: Polaris Press, April 2010
Emily Miller knew her life was about to change forever the day her mother said, “I’m pregnant.” She’d hear those words again and again—and with every pregnancy Emily’s father changed from bad to worse. For years the Miller family suffered through his rages. It took a terrible loss for the family to regroup, and all the love Emily can muster to save her siblings.
Living in an abusive household, we watched as Emily traveled the road from childhood to adulthood with determination and strength. This story was about surviving and coming to terms with who you are and what you make of your life. Kudos to Emily for the sacrifices she made and doing what was right for her. This was a good read and have that box of tissues handy. My rating: 5 stars
