A very sad story, this is more a family memoir told through the author's perspective than the title leads you to expect. This flows chronologically, which makes this a very lengthy listen to get to the key parts you heard in the free excerpt.
Even the most "functional" families have disfunctions and, sad to say, bad programming of their spouses and children, as Janine's and Amy's relationships expose. It it very sad and unfortunate the fate that befell Amy, as well as Janine's own failed marriage.
Excellent book. Speaks to a systemic problem in North America. A problem that is a blight on our society, and it won't be solved until we all start to see it for what it is. Assault!
I absolutely loved this book. I could not get out of my car because I was so engaged. My heart goes out to Janine Latus and her family.
