    1. Subjects that have been part of our domestic world since the beginning of time have only recently been exposed in the media. Part of this media is literature. Daddy’s Girl by Charlotte Vale Allen is a story based on autobiographical truths and far surpasses that produced by a mere active imagination. Daddy’s Girl was published in 1980 when the subject of incest was still cloaked in the closet of unspeakable subjects. The book is rather chaotically written (starting in the past and jumping in [...]

    2. Normally I like Charlotte Vale Allen's books. Even though the subject of this book is parental sexual, physical, and mental abuse (so "like" isn't exactly the word I'd use to describe it), Vale's writing is what has always drawn me into her stories. That didn't happen with [Daddy's Girl:]. I think the reason for that is because the book just doesn't have much credibility.It has to be very difficult to write about the horrendous abusive situations Charlotte Vale Allen describes since she claims t [...]

    3. I am not sure how I came across this book, but I found an autographed copy at a bookstore many many years ago. I have read it and it breaks my heart to read anything that has to do with child abuse. It is good to be aware that not all is as it should be and makes me grateful for the great life I do have with my family and children.

    4. The true and harrowing story of Ms. Allen's life of incest. Betrayed by her own father who told her to "keep the secret". The suffering and sadness her father placed upon her is totally unforgivable! A great amount of courage and honesty on Ms. Allen's part for writing her true story is applauded for bringing to lite an all too often tragedy in our society.

    5. I believe I have read all of Charlotte Vale Allen's books, most of them I read back in the 1980's and 1990's. This book is her memoir about surviving an abusive childhood. Her books are very honest and well written, and stay with you long after you have read them.

    6. This book was one long thought with a bunch of "click, click". I would have enjoyed the book a little more if it she didn't keep saying "click, click". Oh that was so annoying!This is not one of my favorites.

    7. Just finished this book, and I'm just so Meh about it. I honestly can't say I liked it, because who "likes" a book about child abuse. I just never developed a connection with the author, so, while I can't say the book was horrible, I can't really say it was good either.

    8. Very well written. Explored more of the emotions and after effects than the acts themselves, which was less disturbing, but just disturbing enough.

    9. This must be a reprint of a book that I read back in 1983 while working as a Child Protective Service Worker.

    10. I read this as a young teenager (I might have even been 11), and I have never forgotten the horror within its pages.

    11. A great book of someone's sad story and how she became a survivor of sexual abuse. It was heart breaking and hard to read at times but worth reading!
