"Aimee’s life has involved intense media coverage spanning over several decades, and this is the story of
how she and her family persevered despite tremendous obstacles in front of them. Part inspiration, part spiritual, part love story, this book addresses the real, lived effects of trauma, and how difficult but rewarding it can be to find your own way into the light. The story of Aimee’s daughter’s recovery from a 3 week coma—after being beaten by a roommate she met on Craigslist—is one of the most inspiring stories of healing you’ll read."
"There are certain events that change the course of a life irrevocably. After enduring terrible sexual abuse as a child, Aimee Cabo Nikolov had to overcome homelessness, substance abuse, and years of custody battles to create a better future for her first daughter. In her debut memoir, “God is the Answer, Love is the Cure” Nikolov tells her story with honesty and vulnerability. What in the beginning reads as a tragedy transforms into a story about falling in love—with the right man and with life itself—showing the reader that no tragedy is too great to overcome and how hope and faith can guide us through even the darkest of times."

"Along the difficult path in her story, Ms. Nikolov never loses her pure spirit. Why? Because of her belief in God. She always pulls through. ", online review.
"Aimee’s story captivated me from page one. To be perfectly honest, I became somewhat obsessed with this story for days. This family was prominently featured in local Miami, and at times, national news for almost thirty years. Not only did I read this book, I read as many news articles that I could find about Aimee and her family. I truly admire Aimee’s strength and bravery. She has endured unimaginable pain and devastation but maintains a strong sense of faith and optimism. This is an engaging story and a thrilling read."
“Love is the Answer, God is the Cure” is the story of Aimee Cabo, who was in the Miami news for almost five years from 1989 to 1994 in a case the media named “The Case from Hell.” This sexual abuse case pitted her and her sister against her parents who denied all culpability. As she fought court battles, poverty, abuse, and addiction, Aimee always turned to love and to God. Another near tragedy struck when her daughter was almost murdered by a tenant she found in Craig's list. This is the story of a woman who had all the odds against her and how she persevered to find true love and form a family that could withstand anything.
