But throughout this book Ana grows to become strong. She develops thoughts as her own and later, words as her own. It made me proud as she wished nothing like her childhood into her children because I know a lot of victims of abuse carry it on.
I would recommend this book to anybody because it is such an impactful and interesting read.
I put myself in the place of Ana Franken, and thought of many things I would have done, but I guess people do things differently when they are faced with such tramua. I am sure Ana Franken, suffered emotionally also and the fact that it took took her having her own family to get out is sad and heartbreaking. I was full of emotions, sad, angry and depressed for this character, I even felt as if I knew her and thought about what I would have done to help her. This is a must read eventhough it was sad. The author kept me guessing until the end, I was not disappointed. This book is worth every penny!!
I was upset for this lead character because she truly went through a lot and it seemed as if no one in her family wanted to help her, instead they added to her pain and displacement in her family. I kind of think her brothers may have been a bit jealous of her taken she was the only girl in the family. Their wives and her adopted sister all seem fixated on her treatment by the mother. Pushing Ana Franken in the back corners of her own family is disgusting and her father, well that’s another story. I am happy she got herself out of that horrible place. The author, Johanna Sparrow delivered beautiful narration of this fictional character. I am recommending this book to everyone I know! Bravo!!!
