Dammit It did not save my review That's so annoying I'll have to write it all over again I swear if I have to write one thing over again I will turn into somethingAnyway this book is painful to read It's like trying to watch Slumdog Millionaire which I could not even handle because the child abuse would not end I was like if one child gets beaten and molested in this book It made me want to jump into the book and just shoot her so called parents who beat her endless and her mother let her step father molest and beat both sisters and force them into a pseudoAmish cultThen when they join a real group of Amish you think oh things will get better Amish people are so pure and innocent right So virtuousBut then you would be WRONG Because there is molestation and all kinds of problems in the Amish community But if a person molests a child they get put in the Bann for six weeks Then the victim is forced to forgive them Never mind THAT IT HAPPENS OVER AND OVER AGAINBut if you're gay you'd be kicked out But get molested and don't forgive and YOU'RE TREATED LIKE YOU COMMITTED A CRIME They won't even get the cops involved It's horribleSo Misty stood up and called the cops on a man who was raping his kids tried to rape her and then was also poisoning his wife But she was treated like the bad guy for involving outsidersI really hope that her so called parents were punished somehow because they were not only abusing these kids but an elderly woman and a mentally ill woman

Nd one freezing morning in early March I made a dash for a tiny police station in rural Minnesota After reporting the bishop I left the Amish and found myself plummeted into the strange modern world with only a second grade education and no ID or social security card To all abuse survivors out there please be encouraged the cycle of abuse can be broken Today I am a nursing student working towards my master's degree and a child abuse awareness activist This is my story If you have read Scared Selfless A Child Called It The Sound of Gravel or Etched In Sand then Tears of the Silenced is a must rea. I wanted to cry but I couldn't This is a powerful book about child abuse and how abusers get away with their crimes I'm glad the author escaped her misery but my heart aches for all of those who cannot escape their tormentors A few Summers back I attended a demonstration against a Satmar male therapist who molested a young girl under his professional care Amish and Hasidic communities are insular and nobody talks about abuse The government can't interfere allegedly but all these fundamentalist groups can get money from the government That is unacceptable and they have to be held accountable for the damage they have inflicted on so many children and adults I hope books like this are published so that that the truth can set the victims free

Tears of the SilencedMisty Griffin's story ─ Surviving child abuse parental betrayal sexual assault and Amish crueltyA true crime memoir When Misty was six years old her family started to live and dress like the Amish Misty and her sister were kept as slaves on a mountain ranch where they were subjected to almost complete isolation sexual abuse and extreme physical violence Their step father kept a loaded rifle by the door at all times to make sure the young girls were too terrified to try to escape They also knew that no rescue would ever come because only a couple of people even knew they existed and did not kno. I give up If this author had an horrific childhood she has my deepest sympathies However this book is not only dreadful but completely unbelievable Let me count the ways 1 Her family was not Amish That she would blame that community for her traumas is ridiculous and unsupported by any kind of fact I'm sure there are cases of child abuse in Amish communities; just as there are vile cases in every strata of society How did she end up in an Amish community anyway To my knowledge taking in outside young people is something that is not part of that culture I could certainly be wrong but I don't think so 2 Did ANYONE edit this book The spelling grammar word usage and punctuation were so bad I had to stop mentally correcting every sentence That was hard as I teach remedial English and EFL3 As another stated I get it The author is tiny How many times does the reader need to hear that She's also perfect and beautiful pretty in her words I was almost nauseated by her sweetness not to mention her freuently commented on kind eyes etc What is this The canonization of Misty or Emma4 With the lack of education the author refers to how is it she was asked to write a column for a community newsletter Her wisdom is at best difficult to swallow At the least it reads as completely bogus5 Baptism For an outsider and a teenager after a short span of time ReallyAnd seriously Every adult in her life is an abuser or a boy who is after her The women are verbally and emotionally vicious but for mommy dearest who if a real person is indeed monstrous but every man is portrayed as an abusive monster Yet we are to believe our hero is a magnet for babies animals children ad nauseam and escapes all of this virtually unscathedI simply do not believe this book is nonfiction At page 300 I finally deleted it The author needs help no doubt and I hope she gets it But to pass this tripe off as a true book is appalling Sorry
