“Etched in Sand” by Regina Calcaterra

5 stars

This story was heart-wrenching–the trauma these children go through completely tore me up inside. I can’t imagine how a mother could speak to or treat her children that way, and the fact that it happened right here on Long Island… I actually had a talk with my husband about becoming foster parents because of this sad story. I found it totally amazing that these children are now functional adults. I couldn’t put the book down. Not for the faint of heart.
