This was an intense book to read, but one that gripped this reader from the first until the very last. It is deep, heavy, and dark. But in reading it, you’ll emerge at the other end truly and genuinely appreciative for the loving and caring bonds you experience in your life.
‘I Am the Product of Rape-A Memoir’ is written from the author’s perspective about her birth, adoption, favoritism, and finding her way through it all. The manuscripts language is easily understood for most any mature age. The background information on each family member is vivid. The narrative is interwoven with the characters and comes together very well.

I admire the author's speaking out. I think these women are so brave to open up and share their story of incest. In a very real way, they are advocating for my mother and so many women who suffer from sexual abuse. They are also telling my story, an innocent child born to a rape victim. Thank you.

In today’s fake reality and social detachment through the use of cell phones and other electronic devices, to me, the purpose of this book shows reality, truth, and learning life’s hard and pain filled lessons from others. It shows the reader to recognize incest and to not repeat bad patterns.
I think the readership for this book is people who think incest isn't really happening today. Young teenage girls who perhaps have gone through sexual assault, or who are trying to fit in and be part of the cool crowd. And yes, boys who hurt girls.

I more than liked the book. I was shaken to my core. What struck me most was the intent to not let the circumstances of her conception or her mother’s life to define her. The author would create her own life on her own terms.
Excellent book! I Am the Product of Rape- A Memoir keeps you interested from start to finish! “Powerful, Piercing, Permeates the Soul”! Thank you, Catherine and Jalyon for the courage to share your hearts. Your story will touch many, heal miraculously and will stand as a testimony of the wonderful working healing power of Jesus Christ!

This is one of the best reads I have had in many years. I couldn’t put it down …the author endured so much but she takes the lid off family lies, betrayal, manipulation, and her own personal pain exposing unspoken topics and leads the way to heal.
Catherine Wyatt-Morley shares her story from a place of strength, passion, and advocacy. While the content of the book may be difficult for some to read (especially considering each event actually happened) no reader will finish this book with a “victim's mentality” but rather feeling more empowered and encouraged to continue moving towards recovery.
