A Broken Childhood II: Forgiveness by Lydia Taiwo

A Broken Childhood, Lydia Taiwo’s first book was a gut-wrenching read into the depths of child abuse and neglect. (Read review here) In her second book, A Broken Childhood: Forgiveness, the author takes us into her darkness, and brings us into the light.

Lydia was a child that never experienced a hug, a mother’s kiss, a welcoming embrace. There was no one to dry her tears, allay her fears, or hold her hand. She was a child who grew up watching other children take for granted the love and care she never had.

Thrown on the floor, her teeth broken, her body cut and scarred from the wire used to whip her, Lydia knew anger, depression, even thoughts of suicide. But within her, she found a glimmer of strength, an inner resolve to pull her through the darkness. Incredibly, she came to forgive her parents and now her life has become a light for others to follow.

“Sorrow may last the night but joy comes in the morning. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. However, many people give up too soon and do not get out. Many people end up dead. And yet, if you are successful in getting out then what else can you do but forgive? That is what I had to do to be able to move on with my life. I thank God that the latter part of my life is far happier than I could have ever imagined and this is because I have forgiven all those who have hurt me.” Lydia Taiwo

A Broken Childhood and A Broken Childhood II: Forgiveness not only chronicle terrible abuse, but are books that will inspire, guide and lead you to a better place.
