"No Hole Deep Enough" is a study in the strength of the human spirit and the will to survive.
How far would you go to survive? That’s what I hope that you’ll ask yourself as you read this book. As children, we depend upon the adults around us to keep us safe from harm and shielded from abuse. But what happens when that reliance fails? Who do we turn to? How do we protect that tiny light inside each of us that gives us the will; the sheer determination to live? “No Hole Deep Enough” is Mattie’s story. We’ve all heard of the “fight or flight” response, but children don’t have the option of running away. They’re typically at the mercy of the adults in their lives, and when those adults turn out to be negative–even dangerous influences, children are left with few options. Too often in cases of abuse, the victims are controlled and manipulated by fear. While personal fear for themselves exists, victims fear for those they hold closest to their heart. Put yourself in a child’s shoes for a moment; what would you do if you were threatened with harm to your family if you ever told anyone what was happening to you? Mattie made the only decision that she could make; she ran. She ran as much from the past as she did toward her only hope for survival. This story is about the indominability of the human spirit and reclaiming your life.
