Bitter Memories: A Memoir of Heartache & Survival

Bitter Memories: A Memoir of Heartache & SurvivalBitter Memories: A Memoir of Heartache & Survival by Sue Julsen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a sad, sad book. It is hard to believe that a father could take a child and submit her to such torture and think that he loved her. Once she goes with him it seems that every male, whatever their age, wants to sexually abuse her. It is just hard to believe that this kind of thing exists.

When I heard on the news about a non-custodial kidnapping rather than a stranger kidnapping it was with some relief. I mistakenly thought that the parent wouldn't hurt the child and I felt the pain of the custodial parent more than the child. After reading this book, I won't feel that way again.
