You could easily believe that My Remembrance is a tale of abuse, however, I prefer to view is as a tale of survival.
It shows how strong the human spirit is and that, if you have faith, you can get through anything, no matter how unbearable it may seem at the time.
Maxine Owen takes us on a journey that is hard to read and can only make us wonder how hard it was to live through.
A triumphant tale when looked at from the right perspective, My Remembrance tells us that we can get through things, when life seems unfair and against us, it probably is, but it is an opportunity for us to learn and grow as individuals.
What is the old adage, it is not how we act in the moment that defines us, but rather how we respond once the moment has passed. From the greatest of tragedies, the most wonderful things can arise, and that is what happens here.
A truly wonderful written book, that is harsher than many written today, because it is true… it did happen, and it still does, somewhere in the world, someone will read this, place themselves in the title role, and maybe, just maybe, find the courage to do what Maxine did, to push back, to grown and bloom into something wonderful.
