Book Description

After the death of her mother, Sara Stewart’s abusive, alcoholic father treats her as a free farmhand and domestic slave. When he brutally rapes her during an alcohol-fueled rage, she kills him, only to find herself pregnant with his child.

Despite her personal agony, Sara rebuilds her life, turns her farm into a successful operation and even learns to love her son, an ever-present reminder of the horrors of that day.

Then she meets Shep. At first he appears to offer her the love and security she’s always craved, but he seems to change before her eyes. Without warning, Sara is forced to make the most difficult decisions of her life.

Frightening and thought-provoking, Toys in the Attic will keep you turning pages as Sara triumphs over mental and sexual abuse, to seek peace and safety for herself and her beloved son.

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating December 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Toys in the Attic is a captivating read, full of twists and turns. The lead character, Sara, is the victim of a horrific sexual event that changes her life forever. The author has woven a story based on this event that brings out the emotions of the characters and leaves the reader wanting more. Not for the meek, this book is a good read.

By Ey Wade

Toys in the Attic is a testament to the survival strengths of the human nature. Even though Sara endured a horrible childhood, and it seemed as if her nightmares would be never ending, David uses his story telling abilities to pull her through. A story worth reading

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story January 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a Great book to say the least. Sara's character is beyond strong, after losing her mother, she endures both mental and physical abuse from her father, but when she hits her breaking point, she kills him. But her pain isn't over yet, she learns she is now pregnant with her fathers child. Will Sara be strong enough to overcome the pain she has encountered and be able to love her child, or will she give up on life it's self?

This is a very captivating story, it grabs you up and makes you wish you could save Sara. The abuse she goes through is painful and heart wrenching.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very serious book January 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Toys in the Attic is not for the faint of heart. It is a story of redemption and redemptive love, but the redemption comes late in the book, and I wondered, at one point if it was ever coming at all. Sarah deals with issue on top of issue, and in the beginning of the story, she is strong and steadfast and smart, and so many times, it looks like her situation with her father is temporary and manageable, and her work on the farm will get her out of the mess she's in.

But not so fast. Hardships are piled on until the girl breaks and I admit, I stopped here. It is a testament to the writing that I had to stop and take a breather, because I was so involved with Sarah and her troubles that I couldn't deal with what was happening to her. I LIKED her, and I wanted to jump in and save her and her family.

I won't spoil it. But I will say that if you get to such a point in this book, you can read on. It gets better. She's a fighter this girl, and though I knew it from the beginning, the part that was saddest was when I thought she'd given up the fight. Well, she doesn't. It's a testament to how we should all just keep fighting, even when things seem awful.

Wait, maybe that is spoiling it? Nah.

Go get it.
