In the warmth of our drawing room we are used of relishing the news of terms such as domestic violence,cruelty to children etc .etc…
But have we ever imagined how it feels when the victim happens to be a boy or girl from your household-how he or she will feel-how her psychological world will be deconstructed-what torment she or he will be passing through.
It takes a lot of grit and determination in order to overcome such nightmare in reality…..
This is the true story of one of such child…
The blurb of the book tells that
This writing will provoke you to self assess no matter age, color, level of education and/or background. Many if not all of us need, want and strongly desire love… the only thing that I can suggest… is that you be open minded and go to a place you haven’t been or have never gone!
And my nucleus review of the book is –
It’s like a peeping window-window to look back to the past.
Or you can call it a time machine-time machine that can take you to the past.
Some way or the other it is time of remembering the past-getting struck by the waves of nostalgia. It is a book that can take you back to the early days of the author- Brandi Jones.
But memories of greener days are not always days of happy memories-particularly if you do have a past like Brandi has.
In your youth what will you expect? Caring and adoring parents of course….reverse may occur. It is not uncommon at all-it happened with great personalities.
But we often forget to think how it can affect the psychological world of the child-like the turmoil faced by little Brandi.
Memories of mother of Brnadi are synonymous with memories of pain, memories of torment, memories of despair! It was like a pleasant pastime for her mother to insult her daughter-always making her feel insecure-in front of her nieces always making them her feel the burden of inferiority.
Brandi seeks the answer from psychological viewpoint- the reason behind such strange behaviour. Maybe it was because she was too the victim of injustice, reluctance at her childhood days.
It is not easy to stand up against such odds-particularly when the dagger is struck by your near and dear or I may say by your nearest and dearest one. It is not easy to stand firmly on ground when the earth beneath you is trembling
But Brandi was not run of a mill person. She chooses to protest.
But suddenly at the most crucial moment of her crisis- she discovers herself remarkably alone.
And then she suddenly discovers she is not alone-when one door is closed, another door gets opened up.
And then comes in her life-her prince charming….
But will destiny be merciful on her this time or play a cruel joke to her……..
It is a story of self realization-realization to the power of love-love may be platonic, may be a blood and flesh affair or may be a love that has the capability of lifting us all from the daily narrowness of life.
To me it is a pious attempt on the part of the writer to narrate the story of her life- the life which was devoid of true love- a life that has found the true love.
It is a story of a fountain-where life and love has mixed together!
A fountain of joy…..
