You have written a clear picture of the anger that results from abuse. This is such an emotional letter that it causes the reader to hope the sister finds peace with God and release from anger, and the brother realizes the harm he's done and seeks forgiveness from God and his sister.
This is a well written letter. I can understand her anger. Good job.
This is powerful. Having the brother be the abuser instead of a dad, is a different twist. I can feel her sadness and anger in the letter. Very well done.

Heart-breaking, and a really good example of how anger can be cold as ice, not always red-hot. Superb writing.

Excellent writing - the emotions seem so authentic. Amazing story.
Intense ... as the writing on abuse should be. Really, really good writing and a bit of anger most people don't have the courage to write about. I loved it and felt emotion and understanding for the MC.

Here's an example of abuse that rarely gets mentioned. The MC's voice is restrained, yet the powerful message is conveyed clearly. The anger that's expressed is justified, in light of the betrayal of someone who's supposed to be a loving family member.
