On the run: Secrets by Darcia Helle
This author is one of the best for describing violence in her books, I can only imagine the research she has done. Samantha grew up in a house full of unbelievable conditions. She had no one to trust, her father has done horrible things to her, her mother turned her back to her, so didn’t her brother. When she had the chance to leave, she fled for her life, she never looked back. Samantha had to make a new life, become a different person, she even believed in the person she’s portraying. She met Jeff and married well. Can she keep her secrets? Will her family leave her alone? Download a copy to find out, you’ll love this book. The characters seem so real, I fell for Sam and Jeff. This story has a surprise at the ending that blew me away.

Let me just say; I think this was one of this authors best poetry books yet!
There’s a good mix of poetry, some on relationships, dreams and weather. The other side, abuse of adults and children, this author touched sensitive subjects in this book. It gets you thinking and feeling, that’s what poetry is all about. One line that is a favorite of mine; Still Stand so I can feel your heart
Where each beat will design my soul’s art.
Just a taste of what you’ll read in this awesome book. This author uses poetry to write about life. Download yours now to get a taste of what I think is her best work yet.
Never Again hits on spousal abuse, a big problem in society today. Jen thought she married well, until Ken started telling her she couldn’t have friends over.. Jen started thinking maybe she’d been wrong to marry Ken. Jen takes things in her own hands. A very well written short story, don’t mess with Jen.
First off, I have total respect for this author! To tell the world about her life, I don’t know if I could do that. I’m very glad she chose to tell her story. It’s very hard to read because even though I knew harsh parents including mine at times, they were actually tame compared to these parents. She shows that even with the up bringing she had, you can stop the cycle by choosing a different path. One sister did that and had a happy adult life. This book really pulls at the heart and soul of the person reading it, so get tissues and hold down your temper. What this sweet lady endured was pure hell! I want to HUG her and tell her thank you for sharing her story. WOW! I just can’t get over what some people do to their Children and no one stops it!
