Spilled Milk Reviews
This was a free Kindle download and is a true story of how a young girl who is sexually abused by her father struggles through her teen-age and early adult life to finally tell herself that she has to close this chapter of her life. Brooke Nolan grew up in an abusive household and for years thought her father and mother's reaction to her and her three siblings was a normal one.

“Just remember, rain doesn’t seem all that threatening at first, but too much rain can turn into a flood.”
Cover aside (because well, it’s not the prettiest), Spilled Milk was one of the most compelling books I have read to this date. Spilled Milk shows you the inside of so many things that go on in this world every single day. And through Brooke’s POV, we see the details on how it can destroy a family and cause so much turmoil that they think there is no way to come back from it.

Best book EVER!!!
This book was absolutely amazing. I feel so much stronger just from reading this book and seeing how Brooke survived.
I love this book! It draws you in so quick and once you start reading you can barely stop. It's very well written and it can get rather sad, frustrating and aggravating when you read it but only because you can't help but empathize with the main character and her story. Overall a great read, - must read too.
Honestly, it is a moving and horrifying tale of bravery and sadness. But if the editing had been more thorough I'd have been able to focus solely on Brooke's voice. Instead, the misused plurals/'s and the disregard for punctuation left me a bit distracted.
Wonderful book!!! Tough subject matter. It was hard to put down.
Spilled Milk by K. L. Randis is a touching story based on true events. Brooke Nolan, from the time she is a little girl until her teenage years is sexually abused by her father. She isn't the only target in the family, as her siblings feel his wrath in the form of physical abuse. Her mother is disabled from a mishap at work, and there are 4 children in the household which traps her financially. The perfect setting for the lightning storm that is Brooke's life. It isn't until sitting down to dinn ...more
So much praise for this book
I cried through most of this story. When I was finished reading, I smiled. It's a story of heartache and absolute terror but it's also a story of survival and strength. As a woman who suffered through mental and physical abuse as a child, and extreme emotional abuse later in my first marriage, this story of hope was exactly what I needed. I've been contemplating my return to college to get my degree in counseling for a few years now, and I'm going to do it. Thank you ...more
