Cruel Harvest - A Memoir

Fran Elizabeth Grubb

"Get out here, now, or I'm gonna kill you!" he hollered. Little girls are hardwired to hold their daddies in high esteem, so it comes as a shock the first time a daughter feels the back of her daddy's hand across her face . . . or watches him punch and kick her mother to within an inch of her life. How could this be? Her older sisters teach her how to survive, even when he comes for her in the night. A girl learns to become invisible, to look the other way, to say nothing when a curious stranger asks if she's okay. -- To lie. To expect nothing, not even from relatives. -- To cry without tears. -- To pray silently. When she is fourteen, and weary, a girl begins to wish she were dead. Cruel Harvest is the compelling story of how she lived instead.
