A Stolen Childhood

By Bria Riley

Biography & memoir, General non-fiction | Paperback, eBook


Theresa Hastings has been more of a miniature adult her whole life rather than having the chance to actually be a kid with a happy childhood. The reason being is her father is a raging alcoholic, and her mother struggles to make ends meet. When Theresa is 13, her father is sentenced to 20 years in state prison for taking the lives of two young girls in a car accident that involved him being intoxicated. Theresa is sent to stay with her Cousin Sylvia for the summer. During her stay, she gets caught in the wrath of her two cousins' drug addiction and faces a near-death experience and leaves her scarred for life. Though she didn't physically die, she was left spiritually dead, feeling desolate and despondent. This story takes you through her amazing journey of recovery, discovery, healing, and restoration. If you are someone who has been affected by an addiction, this is a story for you.
