#FridayReads:Etched in Sand: A True Story of Five Siblings Who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island

Etched in Sand: A True Story of Five Siblings Who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island is memoir by Regina Calcaterra is a successful lawyer, New York State official, and activist.

It reminded me very much of one of my favorite books when I was young, Dicey's Song (of Tillerman Cycle, The) by Cynthia Voigt. It was a story that I could relate to very much, in having had a large role in raising my younger brothers and also having an absent father.

It speaks so very powerfully to how much damage can be caused not just by physical and sexual abuse but specifically neglect and verbal abuse and how children are often at a no-win situation in cases like such as this one.
