    Book Description: 


    It doesn’t matter how fast or strong I get, I’ll never outrun her or be stronger than her. Mother is strong and has many lives. She keeps me as her servant and her bitch. I’m a mistake that she desperately tries to cover up. Mother would probably be ecstatic if I was a whore and a liar, but since I’m neither, she despises me. In time, you’ll come to know why I’ve decided to tell the world my tumultuous story. I wouldn’t recommend reliving an abusive past, but for the last forty-plus years, I’ve been living a lie. Daily, I’m finding broken pieces of myself scattered around because of how Mother and her sons shattered the real me. Now, I must put myself back together. I’ve beat myself up for staying in their lives far too long; hoping they’d eventually welcome, accept, and love me. But instead, I’ve continued to be used and abused. I’m often left with anger, rage, and thoughts of having their heads on a platter. Too much time has been wasted. I just want the world to know the true story of Ana Franken.
