Summary

When childhood memories and events continue to haunt you, you may feel the best thing to do is to forget about it and move on - but is there a better way? 

Facing the pain hurts, but hiding from it throughout adulthood is worse. Being a victim, it takes a great amount of strength and healing to break the pattern. 

This inspiring and brutally honest memoir details the struggle for survival, and the search for healing and happiness. Raised in abuse and navigating through consequences, a young, broken soul finds the strength to embark on a journey to reclaim her self-worth. 

What kind of childhood is possible with sexual assault? Is there a way to escape from hurt? How do you shed the victim identity? This gripping book details the life of a first-generation girl who went through hell. Born in England in 1980 with mixed Asian Indian ancestry, she narrates her story of hardship and resistance. Dealing with deep traumas from sexual assault endured since the age of three, and the challenges of being a woman, this girl managed not to break. Her inspiring journey is a lifelong struggle to find self-worth on the ruins of self-esteem. 

Brutally honest, shocking, and riveting, this personal story is an example of a beautiful transformation from living in pain and the journey to happiness. The author opens her heart and reveals her darkest secrets, lighting the way so that another damaged soul will find the way to healing. 

We do not get to dictate all of life’s events, but we can decide how to deal with them. Sometimes your life takes a bad turn, then sweeps you off your feet. Other times, you may need a reminder to reevaluate it. Through moments of conflict, uncertainty, and strength, this book is highly motivational and healing for all. 

Get this book now, and take the first step towards healing, resilience, and a new outlook on life.

My Heart goes Out to the Author

This is a true must-listen audible. It's a bit of an autobiography where the author very candidly opens up about her traumas, experiences and journey through life.

This is a novel written from the first-person view of a young Asian Woman. She was a victim of abuse and this is all about her story. She tells all about how she survived the physical, sexual, and mental abuse.

very interesting listen

I would recommend 'Victim 2 Victor' to anyone who has suffered through abuse and is looking for a starting point in helping themselves or for anyone who has an interest in self-help guides. It's a very good audible with a good message.

Best Audible Ever

This audible has some very hard topics - sexual assault, sexual harassment - which are very important to talk about, but there's also mentions of misogyny, culture and finding yourself which I also loved listening about, especially because I'm not from an Asian/Indian household.

Wow

An inspirational story and a must-listen
What we see on the surface of a person isn’t what is happening internally, the battles people are fighting internally, negative thoughts, isolation, feeling lonely, self-harm, what contributes to this and lack of support.

The audible was well-written and puts you in the shoes of the author and the unfortunately high numbers of women who face similar issues to her even in the modern-day.

educational and inspiring story

It was a harder story to listen to from the standpoint that children ought to be protected. They are not prey for the ravenous predators our world sadly has hidden in the shadows, just waiting to attack. I am volunteering an honest review for the benefit of others.

good listen

This audible was a good listen and not just to be listened to by those who have suffered abuse, I found I had a better understanding of a person thinking and their actions after suffering this kind of abuse.

Brilliant

The audible showed how the abuse she suffered mapped out her adult life and how her adult relationships had been affected by the abuse she had suffered as a child.

Emotional Listen

This audible is a true story, based on a young girls life growing up who suffered abuse at the hands of friends of the family as well as family members. The audible does not just focus on abuse it also charts her life and things she does growing up.

Listening to her travels in South East Asia I feel I would like to visit Thailand one day, it sounds beautiful and the people sound lovely. I love the very funny wasp story! A great audible, thank you, Anu.
