Visiting Grandma
by Debra L. Stang

Category: Fiction / Autobiography
0 pages; ISBN: 159113322X

Rating: 8/10  (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Anne K. Edwards


A victim's tale that is well worth the reading, particularly if you might have someone in your life who is abusing you whether it be emotionally, physically or mentally. Danny has reached adulthood before he shares his story and the horrors it contained. He speaks of a boy who is very much alone in spite of his mother's sharing the home. She is one of the horrors in that she brings home strange men to stay until they leave either by their own will or having the police arrest them. The lessons contained in this story cannot be repeated often enough to the young. Too often, they have no one to tell or the person they choose can do nothing for them. Grandma was Danny's only real loving relationship as a child and she fell victim to Alzheimers too soon to help him through the trauma that lay in wait for him at home. This is also a story of how often history repeats itself and what must be done to break the chain of such violence before the next generation is affected. Talented author Debra L. Stang writes from the heart in this tragic tale of things that too often are found in the newspapers. Recommended to any reader looking for more than just entertainment.
