My 5* book review for ‘No one’s daughter’ by Jasmine Bath based on true events of child abuse and living through adversity

I am actively trying to support as many self published Independent (‘Indie’) authors as possible by reading their books, and this new approach is rewarding me with some fabulous books which are not far short of being as professionally written and edited as those which are taken up by big publishing houses.

‘No one’s daughter’ is one of those books that stands out for me. Written through the eyes of a young Jasmine, I grew with her and viewed the awful abuse she went through, whilst empathising with her unending ability to use her strength of mind to overcome the adversities which were flung at her from all angles. These are not the usual adversities of childhood, these are terrible experiences thrown at her by those who were in the position of being her caregiver.

Although the content is upsetting, I feel that this is a subject that each of us should read about, as it is happening right now to children all over the world. It is brutal, yes, but this is not the most brutal book of the subject matter I have read, and therefore, I recomend it as a book that most people could handle reading.

Jasmine’s lovely writing style is so easy to read, it flows beautifully and I found myself reading it very quickly as it was so hard to put down. Truly gripping, full of emotion and honestly written, I became very angry with her mother and wish that I could have helped this poor child!

I do hope that, in writing this story, it has helped Jasmine in a cathartic way to leave those awful memories and events behind her, so that she can be more at peace with her life now and I feel she is very brave indeed for remembering such things in detail, writing them down and publishing them for everyone to read.   So glad to hear that she is happy now!

I have also published this review on Goodreads and Amazon.  This review is for Jasmine and all the children in the world who have gone through or are going though child abuse – sending you all strength and warm thoughts.  I live in hope that the perpetrators of child abuse will get the punishment they deserve and that, in sharing stories such as this one, that it might help to end child abuse or at the very least, stop more people from going down this disgusting, cowardly route which ruins innocent children’s lives and all too often affects their adulthood negatively.
