    OMG this book was amazing. I cannot believe the suffering Teresa went through, It is a disgrace, I found myself so angry at times in this book i had to stop reading it. Teresa is such an amzing person to be so strong and get on with her life after these awful things happend to her. I wish her and her children the best of luck in life. Teresa is such an insperation to people who have sufferd abuse.

    There are many admirable people on this earth, and theresa you are one of them, good luck in all you do, the human race has many inhuman people in it sadly,  and when they dont care about children, then perhaps human is not a word to describe who they are.
