This review is from: DAMAGED GOODS (Kindle Edition)Being a survivor of physical abuse myself, I was afraid to read this book based on the description. However, I had enjoyed the author's book A PLACE IN TIME so I decided to at least read a sample. I was hooked. I think the reason I was able to read it is because the incidents of abuse are told by one sister to another, during reminiscences, more than 60 years after the incidents took place. Don't get me wrong, the abuse is still horrible and disturbing, but as seen through a child's eyes, and from that distance, I was able to read about them without inducing any terror based on my own experiences. Yes, this is the story of one man's evil and the damage he wrought on his three daughters and his wife, but it's also, and more importantly, the story of how the love and loyalty among three brave sisters helped them to survive the cruelty to which they were subjected. It's also a story of redemption and forgiveness, and makes it clear that it's never too late for you to be the person you want to be, and to live the life you should have lived, despite the cards you were dealt as a child. It's a very powerful book that is hard and cruel, but also achingly beautiful. I highly recommend it.
