The author wrote this book and in all the chapters it was full of descriptions not leading to the point of the story "CHILD ABUSE ". I was very disappointed about the outcome of this book.
You talked about Jody's life like a normal everyday person. Jody's father sexually abuse her when she was a little girl but yet she went through life like any normal person. Nothing mentioned about how you felt emotionally, mentally or physically. Nothing about how this affected her schooling or her love life.
After that jody had grown up to a teenager and was able to speak up to her father, tell him what he is doing was wrong, but yet jody still went through her teenage years like any normal child. You still did not try to speak to anyone about it even though you knew that you sister was going through the same problem.
Jody treated her father like if he was an amazing father, allowing him to interact with her kids not caring if he would try and do the same thing to her daughter.
Jody waited until Chapter 19 to tell her tale and only beacuse one little child did not like what happened and she speaked up about it. The book was stressed out of to much unnecessary words which don't collaborate the book's title.
Now in the chapters after everyone one found jody state she was told by her sister that her father was sexually abusing her but yet again you did not mentioned it to anyone to at least try and save her from the same thing that happened to you. You did not try a be a big sister, a hero for your little sister. Nothing on how her sister felt, what she was going through emotionally, mentally, physically. WHY?
In Chapter 20 Jody said she now felt like her life was over, she did not know what do, but to me that is how she was suppose to feel when the sexual abuse started not coming down to the end of the book.
Jody was not suppose to live a normal life through out this ordeal. Jody suppose to tell us how she felt when she had intercourse for the first time with her boyfriend after going through such a tragic past.
I would of wanted to know how you felt at that moment. Jody waited till the end of the book to let us know how she felt emotionally, mentally and physically and I think Jody was suppose to mention those feeling during the course of the book.
Jody Linn was born I the midwest.
She is an A student, plays the flute and piano. Jody also helped her mother around the house. H
How could a young girl have such a big secret?
There was incest in the home where she grew up.
Unfortunately the incest started with Jody lynn . Her sisters and others later became involved.
In the 1960's this was unheard of and ignored.
Later it becomes known about her father. How does a young girl live with this? If a child is involved in incest the father receives 90 days In jail and 5 years probation. If it is not incest the person receives 7 to 20 years In jail. What would be the faith of the family of the father was convicted?
Rather than being an incredibly well-written story, it is more a documentation of the facts from childhood to adulthood, but this does not take away from the story of her family's attempts at healing in order to come to terms with their difficult childhoods. Indeed, one of the most powerful parts of book are the many letters and testimonials from the author's siblings that is included at the end of her story. What the author wants to share with others is what happened to her and how she and her family coped and are healing. This she does beautifully. And what a loving thing to expose her own pain so that others may find healing in this book. Thank you for your gift Ms. Rutherford.
