Not for the weak...

Comeback: A Mother and Daughter's Journey Through Hell and Back
Comeback: A Mother’s and Daughter’s Journey Through Hell and Back

By: Claire and Mia Fontaine

Genre:  Adult Biography

Pages: 311

Published: 2007

Read: January

3 out of 5

I knew this book was nonfiction and deals with a daughter that fights a drug addiction. What I didn’t know was the daughter was sexually abused by her father when she was a small toddler. The story told through the eyes of the mother and daughter duo was the most horrendous and terrifying sexual abuse case I have ever read about. Even though I have never lived through a situation close to Claire and Mia’s their story had me questioning the decisions I made while raising my daughter – much like Claire did. Their story doesn’t end happily ever after, but does end on a hopeful note. The mother daughter duo co-wrote another book in 2012, Have Mother, Will Travel: A Mother and Daughter Discover Themselves, Each Other and the World.
