The Liberation of Norma Jean Book Review By Nish Homeschool Parents Network

23154623 The Liberation of Norma Jean was a perfect weekend read. I curled up in my chair and took some time out to enjoy this book and I am glad that I did.

The reader could feel the empathy flowing from the pages by those who supported the main character throughout the book. The author keeps the reader turning pages, with perfect details for her readers to follow the storyline fully. The main character is well developed and the reader can certainly feel empathy for her as well as those that are touched by her kind heart. Undoubtedly the author wants her readers to understand why the main character responds to life’s uncertainties the way that she does, and she does not leave her audience trying to guess what happened in the past. Strong details and attached heart strings keep the reader wanting to know what happens next, and this was a plus for me. This book challenges the readers to look deep into the problems of child abuse at any age and stage as well as mental illness and the consequences and shame of rape. I feel that the author gives an objective point of view on these common dysfunctional attributes of families that are struggling on the fringes of society. This is a story that awakens the soul of humanity and proves that there is something much greater than hate!
