A stolen life
By Tidy tiff
I was moved saddened and happy that this woman went through y’all that and still was a good person after the fact hope her and her family are doing great
Deeply moving and worth the read I think it took me 3 days if not that to finish it and I read it to my newborn also she loved it too!
Wow, Amazing Book!
I finished this book within hours. I couldn't stop reading until the end. Ever since I saw her interview, I really wanted to read her book. I had tears in my eyes a few times. It was very hard to read what she had to go through. This was an amazing book with an extremely beautiful ending.
Easy read, not very well written
By Mayaas Mom
I thought it could have been better written, lots of repetition, not enough details. Easy read.
Inspiring...couldn't put it down
This book is beautifully written by a woman who has endured more than I can imagine. I truly hope and pray that She and her girls will have much peace and happiness in the years ahead. Her ability to have a positive attitude and decide to be happy was so inspiring to me.
Horrific Story, Raw, Well Written but DONT Read
I'm giving this 5 stars even though I haven't finished the book & don't think I can stomach finishing it. 5 stars for being brave enough to write this book, 5 Stars for the story telling however I became physically ill half way through reading this that I simply can't finish it. How this amazing girl had the courage to write about this & survive it is unbelievable. I just can't come to grips with finishing the memoir because it's so raw & heartbreaking.
Sad but too graphic
I wanted to hear Jaycee's story but it was so sexually graphic, I couldn't stomach it. It made me physically ill. After a few chapters, I decided that I won't be able to finish this book. I looked he story up on Wikipedia instead.
The first part of the book is really hard to read because of the details about what happened to this poor girl but I the book as a whole is amazing. This young lady survived something so horrific and I'm inspired by her strength and courage through it all. I hope the rest of her and her girls lives are everything they want and more.
It's amazing she survived. I must only give it 3 stars however, some of it is just way to graphic. Too painful to read; I had to skip chapters because it was just something my mind didn't want to know. Too shocking. If that was maybe toned down a little...I don't know...I don't know what I expected from this book. God bless her and I thank her for sharing her survival story.
Lost for words
She wrote this book so wonderfully. I can't imagine what she had to go through. She's an inspiration. She has no anger towards anyone. She's so positive and up lifting. Beyond happy her and her children and live life to the fullest now
For the ones who gave this a three, two or one star. Something is wrong with you. Seriously, get your head checked out. And for the one that wrote, first half scary, second half boring. I would of just gotten this book from a library. You need counseling. I'm sure you also feel the guy deserves to be free too. Done with my rant. Thank you Jaycee. You've inspired millions across the word to stay strong!
