This book provides an unusual viewpoint involving the tangled web that abusers create around them. It's sad to know that despite the growing level of awareness and education on the subject, there are still large groups who still cling to expired, disproven information. Why do we put so little value on our future generations? If you're interested in gaining some insight into the insanity that often follows a victim when they have come forward, then I certainly recommend it.
This very honest and straightforward account will hopefully help people understand an emotionally abusive relationship. It helps illustrate how manipulative abusers are and how they groom everyone in their lives. I like how the author uses her own story as well as other information to show how these common behaviors affect victims.
For someone that is aware of the problem out there, but never really was AWARE, this has been a truly “holy shnikies” read for me. Stacy’s courage to share her account of what she and her family went through is distressing and yet she inspires hope. This is a must read that brings awareness of the “grooming” process of a pedophile that can open our eyes in order to protect our kids.
Stacy and her daughter's story is a straightforward and in your face read about what they went through dealing with a Pedophile who not only abused Stacy's young daughter but physically and mentally abused Stacy. Ms. Coulter is very open about the struggles of dealing with the aftermath of what happened to her and her daughter. How they were shunned and called liars. How the very people they loved and counted on turned on them because they couldn't believe that someone close to them could do the unthinkable things that happened to Stacy and her daughter. A very eye opening book. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and story.
This book is very informative and does a great job explaining how sexual abuse occurs right in plain sight. It's easier to look the other way and dismiss gut feelings because the truth is too disturbing and uncomfortable to acknowledge. Society looking the other way and refusing to believe "nice guys" people love and respected in a community could possibly also have a side they work hard to hide is exactly what allows the abuser to hurt so many victims and get away with their selfish disgusting acts robbing children of innocence do so long.
I read this book in one evening, could not put it down because it was so relevant to me and my life dealing with the sexual abuse once rampant in my past. It's very well written and I highly recommend it to anyone dealing with these issues. Denial is a powerful thing to understand and combat, more should be done to educate people about this very real problem. Good job Stacy!!!!!
