Tolson 4 TEARS Reviews "Shards of Glass"

The Project4TEARS = Telling Everyone About Rape & Suicide, so no shed tear is wasted.

Shards of Glass: A little girl's journey back into her world of physical, mental, and sexual abuse. 

The little girl's prayer was "Please Lord, don't let him find me."

CW Seymore wrote a heartbreaking yet hopeful book. She witnessed extreme domestic violence and was the victim of unrelenting and unbearable child abuse. She sought safety by sleeping alone in the woods rather than in her own bedroom with her sisters. But was she ever safe from the emotional torture and mental cruelty? She sought salvation in faith and sports, attaining a sense of value and worth that was not offered in her home.

Seymore documented her life to bring awareness to the epidemic of abuse and to help others overcome the effects of trauma. Her writing gives voice to the hardships she endured and the emotions she experienced; victims of abuse often seek healing in reading others’ stories. Shards of Glass is beneficial to survivors and their support systems as a bold look at the reality of generational cycles of abuse and the need for long-term recovery.
