This suspenseful account of real-life experiences weaves its way through the haze of a comatose, brain-damaged Vietnam veteran's memories of childhood. His was a childhood filled with the horrors of physical, mental, and sexual abuse perpetrated by those who should have been his protectors. Journey back to the 1950s, a time when children were little more than chattel, and when the understanding of abuse and its effect on the victim's future was just barely emerging. The chillingly real pleadings of a young Anton paints a harsh but true picture of child abuse. For three long months, Anton is suspended between his past and now in a comatose state. His story is simply too unbelievable to be fiction, yet too real not to be. It is captured in the first person, as he weaves a tale that will tear at your heartstrings, yet give hope to all who have endured the realities of abuse. About the Author: j. anton spent his youth on the streets of Erie and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A victim of horrendous child abuse, he spent much of his time learning how to survive. As a combat medic in Vietnam, he was gravely injured. He went on to study animal science at the University of Maryland, and he worked in that industry for much of his young adult life. He later acquired a degree in nursing, worked as a trauma/flight nurse, and then taught nursing until he retired. He now lives on an island between the Canadian and U.S. borders with his wife. He shares his story to offer hope to those who have also suffered abuse, and for those who work diligently to help them survive. Publisher's website: http://sbprabooks.com/janton
