About the Book

This Should Never Have Happened is the true-life experiences of Laura, a child whose mother is present in body only while her father emotionally, physically, and sexually imposes horrific terror upon his seven children. Nightmarish memories are locked away in her mind until shortly following the elderly man’s death, when shocking recollections erupt like a violent volcano, spewing years of unspeakable pain and torment. Journey with Laura as she recalls graphic details and images from turbulent days and brutal nights at the hands of her sadistic father. Witness, through the frightened eyes of a small girl as she grows into a young woman, the escalating intensity of one man’s savage treatment of the children he was supposed to cherish and protect.

About the Author

Laura Vivian lives in the same small town that she describes in This Should Never Have Happened. Laura was employed at a large pharmaceutical company for nearly thirty years. During that time, she also created a successful event planning business which allowed her to specialize in her passion, wedding coordination. Now enjoying her retirement, Laura’s favorite activity is cooking Sunday dinners to share with the loves of her life - her husband of forty-two years, two grown children, son-in-law and two young grandchildren.
