This book is a life and mind changing experience. She made me think about my own life and how I live it. It made me want to be a better person. Jill is definitely not only a survivor, but a dedicated mother, Patriot, and a role model for all  women. I experienced some of these things first hand and can tell you Jill is one of the strongest women I have ever known. It was a privilege to read this book and know that Jill can teach us all something about survival in this cruel world. We can all learn a lot from this brave and TRUE real world survivor!

This is a book you can’t put down. It’s a story of one woman’s refusal to give up despite all the adversity and actual horrors inflicted upon her… Her dedication to her sons, the personal uplifting thoughts that she brings to bear  raising children. It gave me chills what she was subjected to. Despite everything the triumph she received with her wonderful 6 boys makes your heart fill with warmth. It is a must read for all woman raising children in an adverse situation. Her lessons are simple but brilliant. Jill is more than a survivor.. She is not a victim.. She is a strong and loving woman. I recommend this book to everyone,  woman who feel they can’t escape abusive situations. This lovely lady did despite having 6 boys.. and they all turned out blessed!

Jill’s book can be purchased at Amazon.
