“Makes The Color Purple, look like a trip to Disney Land”

Mid West Book Review

“Cucumbers Have Thorns and Snakes Love Strawberries” is an unforgettable story! The effect it will have on its reader will be long remembered….


“Sullivan tells it in a manner that makes it impossible to put down”.

New York Times Best Selling author JL King

“Its a page turner…I couldn’t put it down.

If you read one work of non-fiction this year; let this be it.



This is my second time reading this book and each time it has made a difference in my life. Thank you Mrs. Sullivan


Wow! It is not everyday you read a book that you do not want to put down and at the same time get a powerful message about a hidden epidemic. Janice Sullivan has taken us on a journey of discovery, exposure, empowerment, and redemption leaving the reader panting for more. This should be required reading for Social Services. Thank you Mrs Sullivan for lending a powerful voice to “silent killer” in our communities.

Whether you are a man or woman……you have to read this book!

I loved this autobiography because, although, it was about a journey we hope no one ever has to experience, the under lining theme is about the grace and light that followed the author throughout her journey. This story is an amazing testament to how one’s destiny is delayed, but never denied. My husband, my children, and my friends found lessons for each of us hidden within each page. Tell your book clubs, women’s group, men’s group, youth organizations, and churches……
This one, is, a must read.

Thanks and blessings to the author.
