Customer Review

on December 26, 2012
Amelia's Story is a heart-breaking drama of child abuse and the failure of institutionalized child care. It is compelling and heartfelt, detailing the recollections of an abusive childhood experienced by the author. The book is gripping, and while I had difficulty with some of the disturbing stories told here, I could not put it down. Still, despite the material, I often found myself smiling at some of the happier moments--it was reassuring to know that the author found joy in the simplest pleasures, like laughter and play. It is amazing what the human mind can latch onto to save itself from crumbling.

It is a testament to the author that they survived such a horrible upbringing and came to grips with their life, overcoming incredible adversity nearly every single day for years on end. In the end, the book teaches us that life is worth living and that we can overcome any challenges that face us if we hold faith in our hearts that tomorrow will be a better day. Highly recommended.
