    Breaking the silence on Amish sexual abuse. My memoir about leaving the Amish...

    I wanted to cry but I couldn't. This is a powerful book about child abuse and how abusers get away with their crimes. I'm glad the author escaped her misery but my heart aches for all of those who cannot escape their tormentors. A few Summers back, I attended a demonstration against a Satmar male th...

    I am not sure whether to consider this a novel based on several actual abuse cases, or if its an autobiographical account with lavishly embellished events created in the authors mind to demonize and project her past abuse onto the Amish with impunity because the Amish are not very likely to dispute ...

    Dammit. It did not save my review! That's so annoying. I'll have to write it all over again. I swear if I have to write one more thing over again I will turn into something.Anyway, this book is painful to read. It's like trying to watch Slumdog Millionaire which I could not even handle because the c...

    Probably not fair to rate this book, but I stopped after reading only the very beginning. Something does not feel right in the telling. I am not at all discounting the author's experience - it is her own. That said, I acknowledge my own discomfort while reading it, and that, along with the unrelenti...

    I give up. If this author had an horrific childhood, she has my deepest sympathies. However, this book is not only dreadful, but completely unbelievable. "Let me count the ways ..."1. Her "family" was not Amish. That she would blame that community for her trauma(s) is ridiculous and unsupported by a...

    I wish I could give ZERO stars!What a crock of shite! For someone who "doesn't remember things well" because they fell head first into the mouth of a Dane at 4 and had suffered severe head injuries (don't even get me started on that flat out lie!) she sure remembers a lot, and in minute and graphic ...

    Horrifying!For years now we have romanticized the Amish as a group of people who have gone back to the basics in the most complete sense. That view almost precludes us from taking an in-depth look at what they are truly like, and some of the novels about Amish life hints at the dark side but fail to...

    A fabricated tabloid like story passing as a biography. Yes, child abuse does happen in Amish communities like it does in the world at large, trust me. HOWEVER using a sad aspect of humanity to sell books for your own gain not only takes away the attention and support for those who are abused but on...
