Spilled Milk: Based On A True Story (2000)

About book: Spilled Milk: Based on a True Story was a excellent read. The author did an excellent job of researching into abusive issues surrounding this story. Brooke Nolan is an inspiration. I would highly recommend this book to all...because sexual and physical abuse are happening in more homes....and closer to home....than one would care to admit. It was very eye-opening and a good reminder for all on the importance to have open communication, mentors, and the strength and courage to survive. My husband's cousin and aunt, both rated this book 5 stars on Goodreads....and that says a lot right there! I have recommended this read to bookclubs in the area. Can't wait the the sequel to come out. Spilled Milk by K. L. Randis is a touching story based on true events. Brooke Nolan, from the time she is a little girl until her teenage years is sexually abused by her father. She isn't the only target in the family, as her siblings feel his wrath in the form of physical abuse. Her mother is disabled from a mishap at work, and there are 4 children in the household which traps her financially. The perfect setting for the lightning storm that is Brooke's life. It isn't until sitting down to dinner with her boyfriend's family, and his little brother accidentally spills his milk, that she realizes her family isn't normal, nobody screams at the child or raises their hands in anger. Brooke has a difficult time wrapping her mind around the entire incident. The milk mishap is what seems to propel her into seeking help.Brooke builds strong relationships with others, mostly adults who stand by her, giving their full support as she faces the challenge of survival, and court, against her father. The fear she feels echoes through the pages of this compelling story. K.L. Randis illustrations of growing up in a violent home are on the money. Her novel speaks volumes to anyone, especially those who have suffered the devastating effects of abuse. Her words are precise, and descriptive placing the reader front and center in an explosive household. Brooke is an intelligent young woman who finds peace, justice, and most importantly, strength.In my opinion Spilled Milk is about awareness, and reaching out, helping those who can't help themselves. There are far too many stories that mimic Brooke's, characters, and situations may be different, but the fear, and devastation aren’t. Someone in a toxic relationship has to want to be helped, and be willing to come forward. If they know they aren't alone, that support is available, then maybe more will reach out. This is a novel to share with as many people as possible.Spilled Milk is an excellent read.
