Backbone: From Terror to Triumph: Taking control of your destiny
BACKBONE is a Memoir about the life of Tamara M Hamil, her struggles as a child, and the psychological damage that almost destroyed her as an adult. While bouncing back and forth between parents and family members she was molested, raped, and beaten which made her question her identity, self worth, and love. Living in silence and fear while protecting her abusers is now behind her, but the transformation to realize her God given talent, reclaim her identity, and self worth was far from easy. Tamara didn't choose her circumstances, but they chose her. Instead of being defeated by them, she has chosen to be a voice for women with similar struggles, hoping to help them to understand forgiveness and gain an understanding that no one controls your destiny but you. Tamara hopes that her story will connect with at least one person and inspire them to break free from their mental shackles and reach their full potential.

This book is such a hard read, yet so truthful. I felt so connected as if the author was telling my story about my life in so many ways. I highly recommend all mothers and fathers to read this book on the positive takeaway they can have, the impact and how to protect not only their children but others and generation to come. I have met and spoke to the author myself and what's beautiful and the inspiration for me, she wants this book to be shared with not just women but men. She communicated as a mother, it was telling her story from a woman's view but the lesson she had to teach her son and also protecting her son in the process.
If you got a chance to read the book, I encourage everyone to leave a review so others can be impacted. It honestly changed my views on how to stop running and be brave about standing up to my abusers.
