Thank you Perto for your willingness to share your life’s story with the world. I was so saddened to read about the abuse you suffered as a child. Nobody should have to endure the things you did. I am impressed by the spiritual awareness you demonstrated even as a young kid. Indeed, this is how you survived…but for the grace of God. I can’t wait for your second book!

This book has the potential to change people’s lives. It is quite compelling, particularly for someone like myself who rarely ever picks up a book. Once I got started it was hard to put it down – I read most of it in one night! The story caused me to look at my own situation differently, realizing that perhaps my problems are small in comparison to other people. It makes me want to focus more outside of myself, to have compassion for my fellows, and to be always grateful for the blessings I take for granted everyday.

I am definitely recommending this book to all my friends. 5 stars!

Count your blessings! Perto takes you into a world where darkness and evil abound. The good side to a bad experience is what we gain from it. Thru Jesus, Perto found love, strength and endurance. If you are unsure where you are in this life, use this book as a benchmark. As I said at the beginning, count your blessings!

While this memoir may be incredibly demanding and disturbing, it is also a story that the author feels will help him, as well as millions of others of victims of child sexual abuse to heal. Perto Herrera deserves the world’s respect and reverence for his courage in speaking “truth to power.”

About the Book

Men who are victims of sexual abuse don’t like to talk about their experiences which is why very few men will write a book about being molested as a helpless young boy of seven. And no author, except Perto Herrera, will write a book filled with raw, shocking and horrid detail about those experiences. But Perto Herrera did exactly that in “The Invincible Flying Eagle” because he wants readers to come to grips with the reality of childhood abuse and understand just exactly what ‘sexual abuse’ entails. This is a gripping, moving and emotional story of a young boy’s abuse and his ultimate triumph through faith and his own indomitable spirit. -Kirkus Review
