Michael starts his story as a very young child whose mother, Jacqueline is having major survival issues of her own. He has three siblings, Jessica, Brian, and Mahmood. Jessica and Brian were sired by a father named Samuel Combs, a hard working Jamaican man. Mahmood's dad is a self centered man named Mr. Saleem, and Michael's dad was a white man named Amador Contreras. After Mr. Saleem left his mother, Michael thought that things might improve. After all, he would no longer have to feel the pain of a blow to the face if he was selected to be Mr Saleem's punching bag for the day, or for that matter hear the screams of the person who had been chosen. He soon found out that he had made a mistake!
It did not seem possible but life took a turn for the worse when his mother joined the Temple of Love, also known as the Nation of Yahweh. The Nation worships someone who calls himself Yahweh Ben Yahweh. He proclaims that he is the real Savior of the world. The real Son of God. Jacqueline had found herself a real nasty cult to help her solve the problems she faced. As with a lot of these cults the Nation took complete control of their lives. They did this by first separating Michael and the rest of her children from her and then tried to brainwash them into total submission. One of the children's duties was to go out on the street and beg for money to help fund the church and to give to Yahweh. Michael found out real fast that if you do not come up with your daily allotment of loot punishment would soon follow. Usually it was to go without food or if he was caught taking some of the money to help feed his brother he would be whipped to near death. You will read about these and many other horror stories that the children had to endure.
As you read this book you will experience the emotions of disgust and hatred for the child abusers, to the hope of survival for the children as they find scraps of food and a possibility of escape. I hope that there will be a day when this type of story will happen only in fiction and never in reality.
