This is an emotionally-charged book. Alexandra Tesluk's childhood was one of abuse; it almost broke her spirit, but not quite. People with less resilience would have shattered under the cruelty she lived with daily.

The Ashes of Innocence is a powerfully-gripping page turner.

We may well imagine, then, the torrent of lies he must have told Alexander to convince him of his talent. On this point in particular, more than any vain protestations of his innocence, I am most interested to hear the defendant’s statement! The invasion began. Alexander was the first to leap ashore on the Asian side, claiming it all as his spear-won territory, and proceeding thence to the ruins of Troy.

She never does find her father. However, she does hook up with relatives in Poland, which is where the book ends. The story is told in a unique way and in Alexandra’s unique voice. Which is to say Alexandra is not a professional author. Which means the style is somewhat dicey at times. Yet it is this very Ronco Chop-O-Matic style that gives the book its charm, the charm of a real story as told by a real person.

Later that year, it was released as a book by D. Appleton & Company. It won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, making Wharton the first woman to win the prize.

The Slaughter of Innocence, a Requiem for the Mighty is the debut full-length album by British band Hecate Enthroned. It was released 15 May 1997, via Blackend Records, and was also their last release to feature Paul Massey on bass and Marc on guitars, and their first to feature long-time drummer Robert Kendrick. All lyrics are written by Jon Kennedy; all music is composed by Hecate Enthroned (Kennedy, Nigel Dennen, Marc, Paul Massey, Michael Snell, Rob Kendrick). Jon Kennedy - vocals.

There are two kinds of people in this world. Those who rise above life's adversity with grace and dignity, and those who either drown, or become embittered. Alexandra's poignant and brave account of her childhood, rife with neglect and abuse is a testament to her inner strength and resolve to emerge intact from the ashes...... It is a story that took great courage in the telling, and one that you will not want to put down until you have finished the last page.

As Dmitri Prokofitch Razumikhin says in Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s "Crime and Punishment": “Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on earth.”

The name Razumikhin means reason.

Most North Americans are fortunate to have never suffered deeply enough to understand what many of our immediate family have endured. Alexandra Tesluk’s The Ashes of Innocence reminds us how very close we are to the great anguish inflicted upon millions of survivors of horrible circumstances, at the time of her birth and today.

Writing with elegance and honesty, Tesluk tells us the agonizing yet true story of her very tragic early life. Born in the same displaced persons camp where my own mother spent part of her early childhood after surviving work and concentration camps, Tesluk chronicles her separation from her beloved father, and the emotional abandonment by her emotionally tortured mother. Her sorrowful tale of a little girl mired in a world of suicide, sexual abuse, and other heinous acts by other humans, is of tremendous significance for all us who want to empathize with the struggles of humanity.

The book, which follows Tesluk into her formative years as a refugee in Canada, is more relevant today than ever. You owe it to yourself to read "The Ashes of Innocence," which helps to recount historic events, as well as to provide sorely needed context for our current world condition.

Working in the social work field has unfortunately allowed me to interact with children who face similar circumstances to those of the author. More often than not, neighbors show up after the damage is done to say, "I knew there was something going on but I didn't want to be nosy." If someone would have been "nosy" butting into the sad, abuse filled life of Ms. Tesluk, she might not have had to endure so much pain at the hands of her mother and stepfather. However, as a result, she may not have evolved into the strong, loving, and kind friend, mother and wife that she did.

Ms. Tesluk tells a painful yet triumphant story about her life as a child. She was born at a time when families, including hers, were in war camps in Germany. It was a life where she was ignored and labeled inside and outside her home, abused emotionally, physically and sexually, and simply forgotten. To live in the home with your mother and not be acknowledged has to be far worse than not knowing her at all. Innocently, she longed for the love of her father who she barely remembered. Her daydreams often included her father coming to save her from the pain she endured. At times she was driven only by those dreams.

The reader can't help but be saddened by the truths that were in fact the fiber of Ms. Tesluk's life--neglect, hate, and consistent abuse. The story pulls at your heart strings. The scars of her childhood followed her to adulthood playing out in her relationships with men. She didn't love herself and fell into the only life she was familiar with; one of abuse and neglect. Despite the pain and horror that encompassed her life, Ms. Tesluk was resilient and overcame it all while learning to love herself and others. In short, she managed to bend when life was in fact doing all it could to break her.

I gave this book 4 stars because I did become lost at times in areas that were too wordy or in a few places where the author went from the past to the present. I found myself reading some sections over. The pictures were a great addition to the story. With professional editing, the author will receive the accolades she deserves. I do think the book should be shared with others trying to overcome their circumstances. They will be encouraged...
