My Review

Everyone has a past. Everyone has a story to tell about their past, but some have very horrible stories like the author that makes you wonder how they made it through the things they endured. Patty and her sister were kidnapped by their Amish father but their mother used the court system to get them back. This was worse than ever for them because of their mother’s lifestyle. And when the mom met Bill, instead of things getting better, they got worse. Bill and their mom focused on drinking and didn’t give the girls a safe of comfortable place to live. This kept leading to even a more horrible time for the two girls.

This was a pretty fast but yet difficult book to read because of the things the author went through. I was amazed at her story and how she was determined to make something of her life no matter what. I was blessed with Christian parents that loved and cared for us, but there are many people out there that needs to hear Patricia’s story and how it made her be the woman she is today, because their life was much the same.

I would encourage anyone growing up exposed to tough situations such as Patty and her sister were to get a copy of this book and see how they managed to have a happy and fulfilled life despite their upbringing.

I was given a copy of this book to read and review by the publisher through Litfuse Publicity Group. I was not required to give a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine alone.

    Sounds like the author really had a rough life. I can imagine why it’d be difficult to read a true story that deals with such real issues.
