Even though I recommend everyone to read it, it was a hard one to write about.

This book is a true story about the horrors of abuse a 9 year old girl and her younger siblings had to live through with their father. Many parts of the book gave me goose bumps while reading it. Had it not been for Facebook, I never would've know this book existed. So glad I heard about it and read it. The author is bringing into the open what many families/children are living through on a daily basis. Hopefully this will bring more of these issues to light so that something can be done to help the innocent victims.

I finished the book in less than 4 hours, I couldn't put it down, a must read... a true eye opener that all of us need to be more aware of the dark and ugly hidden secrets of abuse. The heart wrenching true account of an abused 9 year old girl and her struggles to cope and try to find understanding why her father shot and killed her mother leaving her and her siblings to live with the aftermath that haunts them all still. The traumatic events that molded and shaped who they are today, and yet a beacon of light to those struggling because the cycle of abuse CAN be broken. The author has proven this, and though she still struggles with many questions and the whys that will never be answered, she still brings to light the ugly truths that many want to hide and keep in the dark. Thanks to the author for having the courage to tell her story, to stop the horrors of all kinds of abuse that spans a lifetime, and to keep fighting for those who can't fight back.

Have you ever experienced something so horrendous words could not explain? Something that ingrained itself in your brain so deeply, you didn't know how you would ever get it out? In April J. Maley's book, I Will Not Be Silent, that is exactly what occurs.

Throughout time, she saw things that ingrained themselves in her head. Like the time she walked in on her mother holding the gun to her head. Or the time when her parents got in a fight and her father hog tied her mother with and electric heating pad cord. More importantly, she would witness her father threatening to kill her mother over and over again.

One couldn't imagine how things could possibly get worse, but they did. She and her younger siblings were in the car waiting for her mother to return, when she saw the blood coming from her uncle's chest, her mother slumped over in the corner of the bedroom, and her father shouting back and forth at the cops with a gun in his hand. That was the day that changed her life forever.

Throughout all of this, April has been able to get her life back on track. She has experienced major ups and downs and had to go through a lot to get where she is now.

I had a hard time writing a review for this book. Even though I recommend everyone to read it, it was a hard one to write about. The author wrote this book so well that I could actually picture everything that was going on. I really felt for the character in this book. But putting all that aside, it was a good book to read and should be read by many others.

I was given this book for an honest review.

The vicious cycle is something heard of all too often. "I Will Not Be Silent" is the memoir of April Maley as she copes with her own horrible childhood in retrospect, a childhood filled with abuse leaving her with nothing left to make her feel like she was of any worth. Hoping to warn and inspire others to tell their own tales and find strength to endure all of them. "I Will Not Be Silent" is a powerful message and a very highly recommended one.

April - I first noticed your book about a year ago. I was drawn in by both the cover and the title. I put your book on a list of items I wanted to read and recently made the purchase and read your book. Although my own story did not end in the violence that yours did, you had a lot of situations that I was able to relate to. I greatly admire you for telling your story!

As you stated, your father was a sick, sick man. Because of this, he created a sick environment. Nobody is capable of living in such an environment for very long without becoming sick themselves. You frequently ask if your mother loved you. You also speak of your grandmother, a kind and loving woman, who became harsh and less nurturing. You also mentioned the personality changes of your grandfather, siblings, and uncle. Although there is no question that your own life was impacted more than anyone else, all of these other people were also victims of your fathers issues. History does repeat itself and I commend you for trying to break the cycle.

I am not trying to take the guilt off of your family members because ultimately each of us choose who we are and how we react to things. I do however want to point out that each of these people were damaged greatly by what happened. Even your younger siblings, who do not remember much personally, have grown up with the hostility, bitterness, and stories because of what had happened all those years ago. Such events would impact anyone.

I am sorry you had such a horrific childhood. I am sorry that Children's Services was not as available as it is today. I am sorry that nobody stepped up and did anything to protect you. I am sorry you lost your parents at such a young age. I am so sorry!
