Review By Christine Favarra, Author of Forever Different

Sometimes we grow in silent places that do not burst through to daylight and voice for years. Restitution is the Light and the Voice for all of the Tess' and Rebecca's in the world. Bravo and all hail, Tess C. Frey, our Heroin for shining that everlasting Light on the pain and the shame.

This book is a journey, one that explores how the scars that we bear in life develop the content of our character. Tess' emotionally charged description of her abuse and suffering leaves the reader asking by Chapter 5, how has she lived to write this book? I'll tell you, as the pages are full of determination and faith.

Joel Osteen said "out of your greatest rejection comes your greatest direction". A charitable person would ask, what I can do to make life less difficult for those who come after me, and Tess takes that direction and rises to the occasion and answers that question with this wonderful testament to survival.
"Be Still and Know that I am God "Psalms 46:10 Tess has been silent and still long enough, it's time to let that beautiful Voice be heard!
