内容紹介

Newly Edited May 2017.
Stacey Danson, lived through and beyond horrific child abuse. This book tells of her brutal beginnings, the streets of Sydney at the age of eleven were preferable to the hell she endured at home. She ran, and those streets became her home for five years. She was alone, ill, and afraid. Stacey also had an unshakeable belief that she would do more than just survive her life. She would not allow her future to be determined by the horrors of her childhood. She reached out for something different; there had to be more to life; if she could only find it. She had a dream of a life where pain and humiliation had no place. She was determined to find that life. Empty Chairs is the beginning of the journey. Now she is living the dream.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Book Review of Empty Chairs by Stacey Danson 2017/7/21
投稿者 Joy Nwosu Lo-Bamijoko - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
What a cruel story! It started with something like a big slap in the face. This young girl, a baby, was used by her own mother as a piece of merchandise. I have read about wicked mothers, but this one topped them all. She added heartlessness to her wickedness. I could not believe what this young girl, who went by the street name, Sassy Girl, had to go through. By the time the story ended, I had forgotten her real name, Stacey. A name she never used.

She runs from a mother, and a hell house into the streets, alone, afraid, hungry and in danger for her life. All through her life on the streets, I read, waiting for something terrible to happen to her. But then, her life on the street was nothing but death itself. She risked her life every single moment she walked the streets, the parks, the crannies, even the people she met. She couldn’t and wouldn’t trust anyone, and then, the story ended, or did it? I don't like Cliffhangers!

The story is very traumatizing to the reader, how much more Stacey who lived it. I could only feel my heart ripping off for this little girl. What a wasted way to live. But Stacey lived long enough to write her story.

5つ星のうち 5.0 I'm Thoroughly In Awe Of This Author 2016/7/9

I first heard about this book a few years ago. A friend of mine told me it was a must read,when I went to order it I found that it was no longer available,I contacted the author on Goodreads asking about it,and she apologized stating,it would not be available again. I was very disappointed,but things like this happen.So you can imagine my utter delight when I found out it was going to be re released. I couldn't wait and as soon as it was available,I snapped it right up . I was not prepared for what was hidden within the pages of this book,I've been dismantled and put back together again while reading this story. I am not a wilting flower,I've heard about atrocities that would shrivel your soul,and yet.... I was not prepared. It took me two months to read this book,not because it was a slow read or because it was poorly written,but because I needed time,time to regain my composure, to get my head straight, because I was continually ripped apart emotionally. I wanted to jump into this book and save the person who would be known as "Sassy Girl". Sometimes the only one that can save you is yourself and Sassy learned that at such a young age,she has a powerful spirit and I greatly admire her.I walk away from this tale forever changed,and thoroughly in awe of Stacey Danson/ Suzanne Burke for having the strength to share this story,THANK YOU Stacey/ Suzanne ,you are an AMAZING human being and I Will forever cherish this gift you have given. So as my friend told me,I must tell you,this book Is a MUST READ. I highly recommend it to any and everyone who has the ability.
5つ星のうち 4.0 Stacey Danson takes us on a roller-coaster ride through the roughest period of her young life. 2017/1/7

In the novel Empty Chairs, author Stacey Danson takes us on a roller-coaster ride through the roughest area of Sydney, Australia. In her own words, “I was about to spend my very first night in ‘Kings Cross’, the organized crime, drug and sleaze capital of Australia.”

We lean into the action as depicted through the eyes of eleven-year-old Stacy. We suffer every night and rejoice each new day that the eleven-year -old is still alive.

Just by virtue of the subject matter, this was a hard story for Ms. Danson to write, and it is equally hard for us to read. Several scenes are not for the faint of heart. Known on the streets as “Sassy Girl”, Stacy lives up to that name and it’s that sassiness which helps her to survive and it’s what endears her to the reader.

The book’s pacing is good and the ‘Kings Cross’ characters that she interacts with are well drawn and ring true. The conclusion of Empty Chairs is somewhat abrupt (thus the 4.5 stars), but it leaves us hopeful that Stacey will find her way out.

A very moving, disturbing, and emotional story. It brought out a lot of deep feelings of disgust, hate, and anger regarding child abuse, prostitution, and sexual perversion. I am a survivor of sexual/emotional/physical abuse. I too ran away from home, but was able to run to my dad's home where I was safe. Despite the safety, I was always fearful that the perpetrator would seek me out and kill me. This was his constant threat to me.
I had to give it 4 stars because there were too many misspelled words and the ending was too abrupt for my liking. I did appreciate the author's explanation but wished she had finished the story before publishing it.
Thank you, Suzanne for sharing your story. Hopefully it will help others.
5つ星のうち 3.0 Not What I Was Expecting, But Still Quite Interesting 2016/12/23

This is not so much a book about an abused child, but rather the difficulty of trying to survive as a young girl on the mean city streets. The description of the author's early years,during which she lived with a pimp who cannot be called a mother in even the loosest sense of the word, was so brief and underdeveloped that if you blinked you would have missed it. The mass majority of the book focuses on a very short period of time between her brave escape at age 11, detailing intensely her struggle to get on in a world in which she knew nothing or no one, and her decision to join with a gang of street children. For this fast paced and hard hitting recount of life on the streets I give the book an A+, however I feel that for this to be a true memoir and not just "based on a true story", there should have been much more about the author's beginnings and history up until her abrupt decision to flee from the brothel she was forced to call home and never look back. While the author repeatedly reiterated that she knew nothing about life outside of that private Hades as a child, I find it very hard to believe she also knew nothing about how exactly she came to be and live in such horrific circumstances, her mother's history, and crucial backstory that would have helped put everything in prospective. By her own admission that Mommy from Hades wasn't poor by a longshot and they weren't living in some impoverished ghetto, therefore it was it was unfathomable that the woman was compelled to sell her own daughter for profit. Unlike other reviewers I am not so much disappointed with the sudden ending, but rather the shoddy intro into the author''s life. I am aware that there's a sequel, but I think there also needs to be a prequel since this part 1 is far from the whole story of her youth.
