The book touches on devastation that domestic violence has on a child. I was the recipient of it. You live in constant fear, and you lose yourself in that. You don't know who you are as you are trying to survive the chaos. You leave the home; you have no idea what direction you should take in life. You don't know what is normal and this affect your choices. You end up with hurt on top of hurt. It took many years for me to let God in my heart, but He was patient with me. God had an amazing plan between me and my father. I was my parent's first born. I was born in New York and lived in New Jersey in my early childhood. I grew up in a home that looked clean and everything perfect on the outside. My home life was chaotic, violent and abusive. I carried all these hurts and did not know what love was much less what is normal. I was trying to find love in wrong places. I received healing when I allowed God in my heart after many years staying away from Him.
