It was a hollow existence: nomadic, extreme poverty and deprivation, with no comfort. Fran's father sold her older brother for five dollars, murdered her infant sister, and sexually molested his other daughters.
Fran could be excused is she were bitter. But she is not. Even as she watched her mother and older sisters run away from the family, disappearing one by one, even as she sought to make sense of her circumstances, Fran was able to do what her father could not--love, enjoy life, embrace God.
There is more to Fran's story. There is wickedness and despair. But there is also courage and hope. And a happy ending too. If you choose to read her story, prepare to be inspired.

"Get out here, now, or I'm gonna kill you!" he hollered.
Little girls are hardwired to hold their daddies in high esteem, so it comes as a shock the first time a daughter feels the back of her daddy's hand across her face . . . or watches him punch and kick her mother to within an inch of her life.
How could this be? Her older sisters teach her how to survive, even when he comes for her in the night.
A girl learns to become invisible, to look the other way, to say nothing when a curious stranger asks if she's okay. To lie. To expect nothing, not even from relatives.
To cry without tears.
To pray silently.
When she is fourteen, and weary, a girl begins to wish she were dead. Cruel Harvest is the compelling story of how she lived instead.
