Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope. 


Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life experience was sharply put into perspective by reading this book. I would encourage you to read this story so that you can better understand what those who were abused have gone through and so that you can deepen your relationship with God and your family.
