It is difficult at best to bare one's soul when so very much pain fills it, and yet Stacey found the perfect co-author to make reliving those years tolerable. Lisa Bonnice knows the healing process, she knows the ups and downs of forgiveness and self-forgiveness, she knows the raw reality of self-ownership. It was Lisa's writing style that helped Stacey to carry her message that nobody is innocent and everybody can be forgiven if only the cycle will be broken by someone.
I am honored to have enjoyed reading this book, and to see it for the pivotal work that it is. The time has come for humankind to break the billions of cycles of abuse that we share. It is works like Fear of our Father that will guide us to this understanding and show us that we are not alone.
I understand that even getting it down this way took courage. And even relying so heavily on trial transcripts could have been riveting, but the way this is put together is terrible.
I don't expect to be entertained by memoirs, but I take issue when they are poorly written. The fear, horror and hopefully ultimate redemption are lost in a non-existent narrative structure, which is a real shame.
Read "House in the Sky," instead. Completely different story from this one at first glance, ultimately both are about women who are traumatized by men, held captive, unable to get away, forced to make sense of a structure that seems to have no rules, and both women suffer greatly at the hands of psychopaths who wield all the power.
I really wanted to like "Fear of our Father." I did. But the shoddy preparation and subpar writing did nothing to serve this narrative and in fact did the story a disservice.
