() I haven’t come across too many abuse novels that don’t immediately make me addicted to reading them. Spilled Milk is no different. I finished it in one day – I couldn’t put it down. And I can’t even count how many times I cried during it.
Brooke, the main character, grew up in a large family. Her father was a tyrant – physically, emotionally, and sexually abusive to the children. The sexual abuse was mostly aimed at Brooke. None of the children felt safe enough to seek help. Brooke was the only one of her siblings who focused her extreme emotions into positive outlets rather than negative. She soon found herself surrounded by caring friends – and only with glimpses into their families did she finally find the courage to speak about her own.
