Brock, I am sorry you received such a ridiculous review. Sheesh. Some people.
I have both your books, and enjoyed your first book immensely. This second one triggers me like crazy, I have to keep putting it down because I just start crying and crying (despite my user name, I am female, but that's not to say that men don't get emotional too!)
I recently lost my mother, and it has been so difficult for me to come to terms with the way I treated her when I was such a JW idiot (My mom was never a JW, I converted when I was 20, which is over 30 years ago! I finally woke up within the last few years.)
Anyhoo. I do want to finish your book, but it brings up so much personal pain, regret, and sorrow for me..... Your book is raw, it hurts.... It is very well written, but my heart resonates with your words so much, in fact here I am starting to lose it all over again. Gah. Time to have a walk or a shower.
I aim to write you a wonderful review when I can. 💕
