I found this to be a gripping and disturbing read; however, after reading some of the comments from her daughter and her husband's family, I am not sure what to think. The book is pretty much told from the "victim's" stand point, so it is difficult to know how these experiences affected the other people in this sad and shocking story. The descriptions of the horrific abuse June said she suffered at the hands of her second husband, are very graphic and sickening and hard to read. After reading comments made by her daughters and her husband's family, and finding out that her daughters never want to see her again, because she apparently hurt them, I am unsure whether i actually want to uphold this woman as a champion of domestic violence. I would be interested to read about or hear what her daughters and her husband's family have to say from their own points of view.
