About the Book

Philippa Peters, the second child of four, was just six years old when her mother dropped her off at her godmother’s home. In the twinkling of an eye, Peters’ life changed drastically, as her circumstances meant she had to grow up very quickly, missing out on positive childhood experiences. In Tough Love?, Peters narrates her powerful, poignant, and engaging story of a young girl who against all odds, fights to stay on the right track of morality.

This memoir tells how she demonstrates courage, perseverance, and resilience in the most difficult of situations and proves that in a negative environment, an individual can choose not to be a product of that environment. Peters communicates that her life’s experiences were instrumental in shaping her into the strong, tenacious, and resilient woman she is today.

Tough Love? shares how the author’s faith sustained her throughout her experiences while offering a different perspective on domestic child abuse. It chronicles her experience of growing up, overcoming extraordinary challenges, and staying true to faith, family, and friends.
