Forgiveness Following the Tumult of Abuse…

A Broken Childhood Volume II
A Broken Childhood Volume II by Lydia Ola Taiwo

When we have nightmares, we know and expect that they will end when we wake up. What if your waking hours were your nightmare? Author Lydia Ola Taiwo shared with readers her life as an abused child in her first book A Broken Childhood.

In book two – Forgiveness – we travel with her to Nigera where she has hopes her life will become better. That hope quickly evaporates. Her parents, particularly her mother’s abuse continues unabated.

Born and raised in England, she suddenly finds herself in a strange country, throw into a boarding school and relentlessly abused by her mother. Gripping in its intimate narrative, Forgiveness, while unnerving in its truthful tale of abuse, is much more, it is optimistic at its core.

Spanning years of the authors life that little sparkle of hope winds through the words, and as Lydia reflects on her past and offers forgiveness it is truly inspiring. I’m not sure many readers faced with the devestating and perpetual abuse could find it in their hearts to forgive.

Her ability to forgive however, is what has lead her to a remarkable life. Now a mother, a wife and an Healthcare Scientist, she devotes much of her time to helping those caught in the snare of abuse and neglect.

She traveled through the darkest depths and came out the other end a light for others.
