Shocking and spellbinding. The writing voice of Abigail Lawrence is so real that it is impossible to put this book down.
I have to say this is by far the most gripping memoir I have ever read. Five stars! --Steven Ward, Author

It is difficult to imagine a woman, let alone a mother peddling their children to pedophiles for want of fortune and fame for themselves. So inconceivable!
Abbie overcame the horrors of the terrible abuse she suffered, but not without difficulties. Aside from this book, she continues to help abused children together with her husband as foster parents. Even without a diploma or any advance studies, Abbie's personal experiences are enough for me to conclude that she would be a very effective foster parent.
Aptly, she addressed abused children in the conclusion of her book: it is okay to cry; but don't give up hope; someone is bound to see the invisible tears.
brother Alex to come and bring her home, finding out that her father and Maggie are now married. After alot of "disscussion" by them, they let her stay there. She meets a young man named Lawrie when she went to listen to a band. For the first time in her life, she felt true love, a bonding and compassion. I don't want to go one and say how the book ends.
This is the most powerful and gut-wrenching book I have ever written and probably ever will again. This is Abigail's story told by herself. The first part of this book had me white knuckled, so sick to my stomach and tears rolling down my cheeks for what this little girl endured. It is very graphic and isn't sugar coated at all. Abuse is never sweet in any way. I can relate with Abigail as I too was physically, emotionally, mentally and sexually abused as a child. Certainly not to the exreme as Abbie. But abuse of any kind, leaves scars and damage for the rest of your life. Happy to say, I also got the help I needed, and finally after 26 years was able to tell someone about the abuse I suffered. I know of those "Invisible, silent tears" and the monster that lurks in the household you can't speak of. There were many times reading this story, I was sure I was I was reading about my life, thoughs and feelings. I am now a survivor instead of the victim and tell my story to anyone who will listen, hopefully to help others. Millions are still abused everyday, and children are killed. I feel everyone from 13 years and older should read this book, no matter how graphic it is, We need to hear these stories to do something about this. This will be a keeper on my Kindle, som much is highlighted. Abigail, you are brave and beautiful person. You are a true HERO!!
