My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Breaking the Silence is a nonfiction book by Diamante Lavendar. It’s based on a true story but was written in a fictional way. It follows young Joan, so called Joanie, experiencing abuse and heartache during her early years. She can’t tell things verbally to her parents ’cause her abusers threatened to kill her. All she can do is to stay quiet and somehow wish for it to end. But as they say, pain and trouble comes first before happiness. Good always prevails as the as long as you keep your faith to God.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars! I love the way the book was written. It’s very truthful but at the same time, very inspiring. The characters felt so real. It reflects thoughts and I love how the emotions were conveyed. Indeed a great read!
