Love is the Answer, God is the Cure: A True Story of Abuse, Betrayal and Unconditional Love by Aimee Cabo Nikolov
Debut author, Aimee Cabo Nikolov, introduces us to her memoir of growing up in the midst of severe dysfunction:
“Love is the Answer, God is the Cure” is the story of Aimee Cabo, who was in the Miami news for almost five years from 1989 to 1994 in a case the media named “The Case from Hell.” This sexual abuse case pitted her and her sister against her parents who denied all culpability. As she fought court battles, poverty, abuse, and addiction, Aimee always turned to love and to God. Another near tragedy struck when her daughter was almost murdered by a tenant she found in Craig's list. This is the story of a woman who had all the odds against her and how she persevered to find true love and form a family that could withstand anything.
While reading this book, I was quite astonished by the abuse Aimee suffered at the hands of the people she should have been able to trust the most. When Aimee gained her independence, she went down the all-too-familiar deadly spiral of involvement in the sex trade and drug addiction.
The story of how she found her way out is nothing less than a miracle.
The reading is riveting at times and expresses great tenderness of the heart at other moments in the story. You will have a hard time laying this book down until you finish reading.
I give “Love is the Answer, God is the Cure” 4.9 stars, the score would have been higher except for a few spelling errors that broke the spell for me. Those errors will have been corrected by the time you get your Kindle copy.
