"Get out here, now, or I'm gonna kill you!" he hollered.
Little girls are hardwired to hold their daddies in high esteem, so it comes as a shock the first time a daughter feels the back of her daddy's hand across her face . . . or watches him punch and kick her mother to within an inch of her life.
How could this be? Her older sisters teach her how to survive, even when he comes for her in the night.
A girl learns to become invisible, to look the other way, to say nothing when a curious stranger asks if she's okay. To lie. To expect nothing, not even from relatives.
To cry without tears.
To pray silently.
When she is fourteen, and weary, a girl begins to wish she were dead. Cruel Harvest is the compelling story of how she lived instead.
"A story that seizes the reader's attention . . . the reader can't look away." ?Publisher's Weekly

About the Author: Fran Grubb travels across the southeast United States with her husband, speaking at churches, tent revivals, prisons, women's shelters, children’s homes, and drug or alcohol rehabilitation centers. D. James Kennedy featured Fran in his "Reclaiming America for Christ” campaign in 2003. Fran and and her husband are founders of a nonprofit organization called "Feed the Hungry Children." When Fran was told about starving children in Kenya and shown photographs of the women and children picking up grains of rice off the ground, she was moved to help. She and her husband, Wayne, were instrumental in building a church in Kangundo, East Kenya, and they have sent money for clothes, food, and school supplies, as well as electronic equipment and a bicycle for Titus Kakonzi, a minister in a small village in Kenya. Fran has two children and five grandchildren. She and her husband live with their dogs, Banghor and Little Bit, in South Carolina.
