    Michelle’s memoir highlight different aspect of life that many people can identify with. This book was very motivational and inspirational. I love the descriptions given you can most definitely relate. This book was page turner.

  3. This is a serious MUST read, a page turner. Michelle tells a story that engages the reader from the very first sentence. The descriptions are so vivid, it feels like you are a part of the story and not simply a reader. Her story is one that will have you feel everything that she does. This book makes you yearn for her to write her next one.

  4. Michelle’s story had me captivated from the first page as I followed her every move, totally captivated by her inspiring memoir. When I finished the book my heart yearned to know what happened next? It just ended too soon. I was touched in a way a book or story seldom has. Looking forward to reading her next book!

  5. Book Review: A Must Read!
    This memoir is honest and straightforward. Because the reader cares deeply for this young lady who is trying to find her voice, it is hard to put this book down. The memoir is profoundly personal yet also reflects the desire on the part of all of us to find our voice, and learn how to process disappointment, heartbreak, and betrayal without becoming bitter and sad. The book opens up in the author’s birthplace, Jamaica. The writing is vivid and crisp in its description of her beautiful childhood home. A must read!

  6. A wonderful testimony to inner strength and then the courage to put all this in writing. To share her utmost feelings, and gain her own validity through the love of people and then from the recognition that she could love herself, is worthy of any memoir. I would love to read a sequel and stay connected!

  7. This book was very moving both from both sides of the fence. If this has never happened to you, it radiates with power in the author’s struggle to come to grips with her childhood nightmare. If you, too, have suffered this kind of pain, then the author gives you strength and the power to fight the demons and rise above such tragic circumstances. I was able to read the book in a day practically uninterrupted. I wanted more, I was touched and moved by this first hand account and have a vivid understanding of what every child who experiences such terror must deal with while they are in the throes of such abuse and for the remainder of their lives. The author gives hope to those children to let them know you are not alone and it takes a strong person to find a place later in life to be happy and put these events behind you. Sandy

  8. Wow! I was blown away when I read this memoir. The vivid languages in this book from the prologue to the epilogue had me mesmerized. The author’s voice was unique, powerful and full of passion. I was disappointed when the book ended because I wanted to read more. This book is a must read, and I know that it will be on the bestseller list one day. Michelle, I admire you for having a voice- Kathy

  9. Dear Michelle,

    I got the chance to read your book while I was away last week. First, let me say congratulations again on making your goal a reality. Not many people get that opportunity. Count yourself blessed. Second, I am extremely proud you wrote this book. A Child’s Voice is not only your story but a story that so many of us share. I know that abuse is not an easy thing to write about especially if the abuse happened to you. I must admit that the first few chapters started out slow for me but I guess you had to set the stage. After “The Telegram” I couldn’t put it down. I read the book as if you had written it especially for me. By the end, I was in tears because when you found the voice to confront the people that had hurt you the most….I was tremendously proud. Again, very few of us ever find that voice. Your journey has taken you down some roads that others may not have been able to make it through. You have emerged a beautiful, strong woman. The many times you cried out to God and you thought He wasn’t listening….He had a plan for you that you just didn’t understand. I hope it is becoming clearer to you because the many angels he sent to you were there to keep you going for a special time like this… when you would become an angel to many young girls/women who cannot find their own voice. Keep writing, keep living and keep loving but most of all keep trusting God. He will never fail you. Thank you for sharing your story…our story. Though the setting and characters are different, the pain is the same, the darkness is the same and the guilt is the same. The great thing is that we can also share in the rebuilding of our lives. God has knitted us together for a reason. I believe that everyone who enters my life is there for a reason. I will keep you in my prayers but now I will know what to pray for. Woman of valor…shout on….that the world would hear your voice A voice that speaks not only of the darkness of her past but of the hope for a future bright and clear Strengthened by the mighty power of heaven…you shall conquer…we shall conquer.
