What a life, what a woman

Your book has brought tears to my eyes, but your strength can be felt throughout the pages entangled with pain.

What a life, what a woman. I admire you.

An emotional rollercoaster

I loved reading your book. It was an emotional rollercoaster read. At times, I wanted to give you flowers, hug you and just tell you its going to be OK. Thank you for sharing this journey with me. God bless you. His word says “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Blessings eternal.

What an amazing story

I finished this book at 2am. I could not put it down. The minute I collected my copy - I started reading and never put it down. What an amazing story. So real. So inspiring. You are indeed a gift from God and very much a strong lady.

Indeed also a story of hope

I actually finished your book in the first 2 days of my holiday in December.

More than a month after reading your book, your story has stayed with me. I have thought about it on more than one occasion as I go through my normal daily life. It is a story of struggle and torment that I wished I could wipe away as I followed your journey. It felt so unfair that you had to endure all of it and that there was so little help for a child. However it is indeed also a story of hope. Hope that I can do better, take better note of those around me, and pay more attention to my own children. I am amazed by your will, strength and grace. You have truly overcome and shown us all it can be done, with the right attitude and the right people crossing your path. The book is incredibly well written and while the story is intense the read was easy. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for inspiration. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

Courageous and Inspirational

The beginning was a bit difficult to read, but by the time I got to the end, I was definitely filled with a sense of hope and admiration.
I simply could not put your book down once I started reading. My wish is that more people get to read it this year.

Your courage in sharing your story is truly an inspiration to others and an example of how you can still find the beauty in Love and in Life, because of the path you chose.

May you grow from strength to strength and share your story with many more.

This autobiographical text is about more than sexual assault. It offers a glimpse into the banality of violence in South Africa’s suburbs, the complexities of intimacy among family members and the contradictory emotions that accompany rites of passage for women: from puberty, to marriage and mothering. Finally, Lynn tells the story of what it means to work through one’s past trauma, whilst growing in one’s sense of self and faith. It is truly, as the subtitle suggests, a story of hope.

“Some do their duty; others fail dismally. By telling her story within the broader context of a fragile community and a faltering country, the author reminds us of our solemn duty towards each other as South Africans” - Professor Jonathan Jansen (Stellenbosch University, Cape Town)

“Her work stands out to all women as a beacon of hope – and we all need hope to be able to move forward. In our time of #metoo and #blacklivesmatter, this work is so needed. We need to read this life story. It will inspire and encourage us” - Dr Marcelle Mentor-Favors (Columbia University, New York)
