I learned about this book when the author was on the Mike Huckabee show. I ordered it immediately, and as soon as it arrived I read it. My hair stood on end at times when the author shared her way of life as a child. It is a real testimony to her deep need to survive and her belief in herself. I loved when she was "found out" and others came to help, especially the lady who did her laundry every week. What a wonderful young lady, who now works on behalf of others who are in a situation similar to what she endured.
