Have you felt true fear? This is a heartfelt memoir by Lori Schafer; a story that I'm sure was hard to tell but needed to be told. It was the spring of 1989. Their cruelty stems from ambition, neglect, the depredations of poor parenting skills. Lori's first two novels, My Life with Michael: A Novel of Sex, Beer and Middle Age and Just the Three of Us: An Erotic Romantic Comedy for the Commitment-Challenged, will be released early in 2015.

But man, did a lot of this sound familiar.
It makes you angry, and hopeful. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. This story touches the heart with its haunting, straight-forward intimacy. The dream is a lot rarer these days. I experienced first-hand the terror of watching someone I loved transform into a monster, the terror of discovering that I was to be her primary victim. It explores the emotions with which I have struggled since I left home: my unending guilt and uneasiness over leaving, and my eternal fear and foreboding of being found.

Es gibt keine Mindestlaufzeiten: Sie können jederzeit kündigen. My family, my home, my friends, my future. It is an easy read, not full of medical jargon that has you reaching for a dictionary. I read the whole thing, cover to cover, while in the bath — so maybe an hour? It details the severe paranoia and absurd delusions that began to control my mothers behavior, her fears of being murdered or assaulted or poisoned, and how her suspicions eventually fell onto those closest to her.
