First, a sincere apology to Samuel for the delay in posting this review. But I got here 🙂
I applaud Samuel’s courage I revisiting this traumatic event and writing his story.
I was expecting “life lessons” neatly packaged from this writing, but it is not to be so. The true lesson, if there is to be one, is gleaned from how Samuel has steadfastly moved on in life bearing the scars, in a society which recoiled from his physical scars. And these scars also ran deep, and we see a man acknowledging the fears and pain he carried, and embodying gratitude.
Samuel’s inspirational story is a simple narrative of a life impacted by events beyond his control. I hesitate to say more of the event in question, other than it being a cautionary tale. This focal point of this story serves to remind the reader that the human spirit can surmount if the will is strong.
A story of trauma, healing and growth worth reading.
My rating: 3.5/5.
