So if you want to or need to know what it's really like to survive childhood sexual abuse, read it. My Prison Without Bars is one of those books that will change your life. The courage this woman has is beyond inspiring.
This book reminds us all of the abuses inflicted up children (both girls and boys) not only around the world but in our great nation. We need to be more observant of what is going on around us, and if we suspect abuse we need to report it, not turn a blind eye. We also need to make sure that children know that it is ok to speak up and that these acts are not acceptable behavior.
It is truly amazing that someone can survive these years and years of abuse and still turn out to be a productive member of society, wife and loving mother. It shows true character. I hope this book will inspire others and it shows that just becasue you were abused doesn't mean you will turn out to be an abuser.
Bravo To Taylor Fulks for being able to open her soul to us and share her innermost secrets and demons, you are an amazing lady!
Red flags waving all over the place in this relationship. He cheats on her, sometimes in front of her, gives her an STD, his money is his and her money she earns being a nurse is his. I felt so sorry for her being a doormat but I can only imagine the emotional problems she had after suffering the abuse from childhood, maybe that is why she took whatever mistreatment handed to her. Tony sat back and said nothing as his mother verbally tore Taylor apart, calling her names and totally disrespecting her. Yet Taylor took that too.
I was so disappointed in the end she stayed with this man, who seemed to constantly "tweak her nipples like he was tuning a radio" her words were something to that effect and I wanted to throw up every time she wrote that phrase, which was a lot.
When she gets pregnant the first time she states they used condoms then on the next page she says they didn't use condoms, wait a minute, what?? I was confused and her editor should have realized she just contradicted herself. That was the child she aborted.
Her mother was always in college during Taylor's childhood and ended up with her doctorate in psychology of all things. I had to laugh at that one. It just goes to show someone can be highly educated and still be a dumb loser. He mother was both dumb and a worthless loser. I still don't understand why she allowed her mother in her life, but more shocking than anything that Taylor let her sweet innocent daughters stay at her mother's home.
Several parts in this book Taylor would firmly tell people off that were treating her poorly only to never put any action into it. When I say action I mean she never left these people and moved on. She talked a good game but when it came time to play she only sat the bench. This was so sad to read. I give it 2 and a half stars.
