I was spell bound. She was honest but at the same time the tone of her story is that if you just keep going and don't give up that is life and discouragement leads to death. I appreciate the lesson in life she gives. Easy to read.

An unbelievably emotional experience
It was hard to keep in mind that this is a true account of what people had to live through. I kept trying to put myself in their place in my mind to really get to feel what they must have had to endure. I can never actually understand how anyone could survive the things described in these pages but, it just shows the strength of the human spirit and body. I doubt I could have lived throught it. I commend the author for being able to write about her experiences . I would reccomend this book to anyone who has an intrest in seeing what true love, strength and determination is. I would hope everyone would be able to read it so horrors like these would be exposed and never happen again. God bless them all.
