Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Begging (Invisible Child Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This book reads like a Lifetime movie. It's a page turner, but in a sad and heartwrenching way. Anyone who's ever gone hungry, witnessed child abuse first hand, or even dealt with the horrible reality of addiction can relate to parts of this. Others can get a glimpse into a world most of us wish didn't exist. All of us could learn strength of character from this young girl. Wow...

Yes - it is a story we have to tell, damaged. To read the rest then read Losing Me, followed by Breaking Free, or simply download Invisible Child. See www.maryhayward.co.uk for pictures of places and people from the book.

What a joy to have received a response from you Mrs Hayward. Thank you. I did purchase Invisible Child as I've wondered what the remainder of this story was. I'm currently reading another novel, but I'm looking forward to completing your work as well. Thank you so much for sharing your work with the world.
I provide therapy (mental health) for young children and for adults. The stories I've often heard are enough to break pain to the deepest recesses of a person's spirit. Your strength in sharing this with the world is commendable. There is talent here...remarkable talent.

I doubt myself still, and your feedback is both touching and strengthening. You have read up to chap 15 of Invisible Child. You might be forgiven to think that life changes for the better after mother returned, but the book then explores how unseen damage, the legacy of my childhood continues to permiate throughout my life. It is a happy ending, albeit the climb out of my social class heartbreaking. I am retired now, my children grown and successful, and I am loved. Perhaps as Rogers said, love is the therapy we all need.
Thank you - Mary
