...I am reading THROUGH A CHILD'S EYES by Author Phillis T. Forrest, and anyone who has a child, I have to admit this is a must read. This is not an ordinary, "oh I was molested so let me tell the world" type of book. The only reason she tells her story is to back up the advice, "...that she places in bold print" that she gives to the parents.

This book does not speak of the scenario of a child being snatched and molested, it shows the timeline of a predator who sought out a naive mother and began the journey of manipulation to prey on her children. During your reading evolution, the Author will have you crying, upset, mad, you may even experience a little hatred, but she accomplishes her mission of educating and warning. She uses her story to let you all know that she knows what she is talking about and if you pay attention to the mistakes that her mother made, you can prevent this from happening to your son or daughter, and yes I SAID SON! She educates her readers of how their were rules put in place, and once her mother broke every rule she set because of the manipulation of Stephan, she completely lost control of her home and her children and he had his way with each and every one of them.

Author Phillis Forrest, you did an exceptional job writing this book and I can only imagine what it took to give us such detail examples of your experience. Kudos to you!

This book is phenomenal and I would not be surprised if it ends up as one of the books for Oprah's book club or Tyler Perry makes a movie from it!

This is a story that shows the strength of a child handling a very difficult situation. It brings to light a situation that children deal with everyday, it gives advice on how to protect our children from predators. You may cry, even put the book down and walk away from some of the scenes, but you will want to read to the end. Please support this book from an author who was strong enough to tell her story to help others!

“Everything done in the dark will come to light.”
Phillis T. Forrest, Through A Child’s Eyes

Through A Child’s Eyes is a nonfiction narrative about the life of a young girl who was molested at just seven years old. The abuse continued until she was an adult.

The story is graphic and intense; not for the faint-at-heart. It’s frustrating because, as the reader and a mother, it was difficult for me to understand how this man, Stephan, got not only Toni’s mother to think she couldn’t live without him but three other mothers, too. They willingly handed over their children to this man and blamed the children for what was going on. I kept hoping one of them would wake up.

The story is hard to read because of the content but the author seems to understand that and attempts to put her readers at ease by saying, “Now, I know my readers are saying…” It was almost like I was sitting at the kitchen table with her, having a cup of coffee, and listening to her story. Despite the heinous acts that she’d been through, just getting that vibe made it a little easier to handle. This really was a tough story.

As Toni gets on her feet and starts making a life for herself and her children, something happens. I’m not exactly sure where the turning point was but this is ultimately a story about forgiveness and progression. Toni rose above her adversities, as did her siblings, and they have moved on. Toni got over her hate and anger and forgave her mother for selling her out. That’s a big leap.

The book seems to be an exorcism of demons for Ms. Forrest and justifiably so. She had a lot going on in her life and a lot to deal with. When she offers advice, don’t take it as preaching, like I did at first.

I would first like to say God Bless You to the author for having the strength and courage to tell her story. This story takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions from anger to sadness and everything in between. It is heartwrenching to read but you won't be able to put the book down until you are finished. (I actually read it in 2 nights.) The author explains to you in great detail how cunning, conniving and devious a child predator will be. If you are not a vigilant mother when it comes to your children you will be after reading this book. If you already are then you will be even more vigilant and protective of your children.

Phillis Forrest's book should be required reading for all parents of all children, not just single mothers of girls. What happened to Phillis can happen to any child, male or female, whether their parents are mother, father, or both. Victimizers can, and do, take advantage of single fathers and happily married couples also.

In this book, Phillis relates how it feels to be a child who is picked out for special attention by a man who horns his way into her family's life, first paying special attention to and doting on the mother, then doting on the child, first when she was seven years old, but continuing for years, while visiting, while living with them, and later while he had his own apartment.

I invite everyone who reads this review to visit [...]. Here, you can see an eleven minute film that summarizes part of the book. In it, you see some of the classic moves that are used by predators when choosing, then abusing, their victims.

It is my hope that Phillis Forrest's book, "Through a Child's Eyes," helps raise awareness of how children feel when they are in circumstances similar to hers. We need parents to pay attention, and we need future offenders to learn how all children must feel before they have a chance to become a future offender. Books like this can help others walk a mile in a child's moccasins.
