This is the thought-provoking, quiet story of one person’s struggle to overcome the abuse in her life, and the fear and humiliation ruling her day to day world. Survival became a matter of not just coping but finding ways to overcome the despair and uselessness that so many abused children feel. Sadie found ways to protect her core and grow in defiance of her stepfather. Life became what she made it, and this took a daily will to carry on despite the many little ways that George tried to tear her down. It’s the story of the people and animals who cushioned her life and helped make it a little more bearable. Some special people did far more by teaching and helping her grow. Through words and deeds some gave her the courage to escape to a whole new world of discovery, adventure and love.
