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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great

Loved your story! Your words are very moving. I loved how you mentioned many times the help you seeked at the end, it could really help other women in your similar situation. It does give me sadness that this is a true story, thank you for sharing your life with your readers.

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.
