Summary:

"Get out here, now, or I'm gonna kill you!" he hollered. Little girls are hardwired to hold their daddies in high esteem, so it comes as a shock the first time a daughter feels the back of her daddy's hand across her face . . . or watches him punch and kick her mother to within an inch of her life. How could this be? Her older sisters teach her how to survive, even when he comes for her in the night. A girl learns to become invisible, to look the other way, to say nothing when a curious stranger asks if she's okay. -- To lie. To expect nothing, not even from relatives. -- To cry without tears. -- To pray silently. When she is fourteen, and weary, a girl begins to wish she were dead. Cruel Harvest is the compelling story of how she lived instead.

    one of the hardest books to get through! not because it was bad, but because of the topics it entailed: physical, emotional and sexual abuse. one man's control over his family and the true hell he put them through. this book is written by one of his children - Francis - honestly showing us the deepest part of human hate and love too... and miracles God can give i will say, there are many triggers in this book. if you lived through your own abuse, it could be hard to listen to it. yet, it is worth the listen!
