Etched in Sand by Regina Calcaterra


“On the days that feel dark and endless, I make myself a simple promise: I’ll get out of bed in the morning. Then I’ll head up the hill to class. If I put one foot in front of the other, day by day, I’ll move closer to the light at the end of all this struggle.” – Regina Calcaterra, Etched in Sand: A True Story of Five Siblings Who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island

Regina Calcaterra did an amazing job writing and sharing her story. This novel made me feel an assortment of emotions, mainly horrified and heartbroken for the childhood these children endured. Definitely not a light read, but one that will stay with you.
