Speechless: An Autobiography of Child Murder and Rape

(1 customer review)
Category: Author: Narrator:


Robert Ben Mitchell’s terrifying story of growing up in a family where extreme physical and sexual abuse were the norm. Detailing his childhood and teenage years, he tells how his father raped him from when he was a toddler until six years of age, how his mother subjected him to bone-breaking beatings, and how all of this culminated in a tragic episode when he was 17 years old that almost cost him his life. He also explains how his parents were able to hide their actions, including the murder of a sibling, due to his father’s high position in a US spy satellite program.

A survivor of extreme child abuse, he shares his story so that others who have survived such horrors will know they are not alone, and he ends with hope and help for those who want to tell their own speechless stories.

Today, he is an osteopathic physician who works with people who are addicted to pain medications and heroin, as well as helping individuals who are recovering from child abuse.

    This is an incredible story. First I want to applaud the author, this could not have been easy. Having a background somewhat similar I know how easily this can be truth. I love that this is not just a story, it delves into how an abused victim does see themselves. As nothing. I could so well understand the self esteem levels noted in this book. When you are treated as worth nothing, you believe you are nothing. Low self esteem is too high to reach.
    To the narrator, wow! Well done. She had the perfect tone, the perfect gravity, perfect distance….
    if a reader really wants to touch base with an abused victim listen to, or read, this book! Amazing! I to found distance from ‘family’ to be the best option for me.
