Summary

In this shocking memoir, Cassie Moore gives a very open and honest description of how she suffered and survived a lifetime of abuse. She describes the sexual, physical and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of her stepfather and mother, who then sold her into marriage at the age of 16; the heartbreak she suffered when she naively left her 22 month old baby behind when she fled to London with the man she fell in love with, only to be abused by him for a further 23 years; the self-loathing, depression and despair she felt during those lonely years; and the enormous sacrifices she had to make to save herself and start a new life.

Moving, horrifying and requires patience

This book is very important. There is such honesty within this story that it is invaluable for society and should be read by everyone to raise awareness. I have a deep sympathy for the protagonist but on a selfish level I found this incredible frustrating to listen to. Just when you think things cannot get any worse, another disaster is around the corner.

There were points when I was actually shouting out loud at the audiobook in the car, finding it almost unbearable and unbelievable. The disaster-movie type story continues right up to the bitter end without relief really at any point.

Do not read if you are in a fragile state of mind.

Great Story, poor narration

As above I struggled with the narration of this, it was so monotone and what is with the background noise? Very off putting.

Other than that the story was great.

brilliant book

this was a fabulous book. I highly recommend it. A touching and powerful memoir. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. As a child abuse survivor I could relate to a lot in it.

Awful Naration

The absolutely awful narration spoilt this book so much for me. There was no emotion in her voice and the pitch didn’t change at all and no pauses for punctuation.
If the story hadn’t kept me so engaged I would have given up.
In summary the narration let a very good book down terribly.

Narrator is awful

This is a wonderfully sad story but the narrator just puts me off listening to it. Her monotone voice just makes it so boring. I continue because I believe the author’s voice needs to be heard. I really don’t want to sound harsh but it would’ve been better if the author had done the reading of the book herself.

Amazing

This was an amazing story, I cannot imagine going through what she did. The narrator did a wonderful job, I spent any extra time I had listening to the book. Well done Cassie, well done. Thank you for sharing your story.

STRAIGHT TO MY CORE! HEARTBREAKING AND INSPIRING.

This book went straight to the core of my heart. Made me feel so many emotions. After I read it, I couldn't stop thinking about Cassie. I feel so much anger for all those people who hurt her. It made me think about all others who have been through the same abuses, or who are currently living it. Maybe even under worse circumstances. This book resurfaced a lot of bad memories from my childhood, and abusive relationships through adulthood. Also, helped me understand the "why??" a little better. Every word, every page, was so good, and well written. Ana Clements' narration was flawless, and I had to check twice to make sure she wasn't the Cassie that the book was about. Thank you.. thank you.

Did you hear me crying?

this is a very heart breaking story, it brings out so many questions of how anyone could ever harm a child. I would strongly recommend to anyone.
Put a light to things that happen in our world behind closed doors to our children.

It's really sad.

I really liked it a lot. It's just so mind blowing the last kid she left with her second husband. Even I knew she wouldn't be getting her back after that little Christmas vacay. No one should have to live a life the way she had to. I wish her the best.

Stopped Feeling Sorry

I got bored with the latter part of the book. Author seems to love playing the victim. The part about her childhood was disturbingly intriguing, but as she grew up, the story seemed to drag on.

well that was depressing…

wow! just wow! I've read plenty of memoirs over the years but this is probably the saddest. I don't know how she manage to survive such horror back to back with no break! Again, WOW!

Heartbreaking story of a brave soul

It's amazing to hear the abuse that she endures from nearly every aspect of her life. Every relationship - stepfather, husbands, other random strangers/acquaintances and even her very own mother! Heartbreaking to hear her story, but inspiring at the same time. God's blessings to you, Cassie Moore. Thank you for sharing your story.
