About the Author
Stacey Kananen is the adult survivor of child abuse and murder. After being accused by her brother of helping him to murder their parents, Stacey went on trial for her life. After being found not guilty, Stacey decided to share her intensely personal story and plans to use proceeds to develop a new kind of abuse advocacy program, in an effort to raise awareness, help repair the system, and to eventually create a safe haven for abused kids and their families to get the help they need. She is vitally interested in creating change in the social structure of how child abuse is handled in the court system. Her long term goals include the creation of the Marilyn Kananen Foundation, in honor of her mother who would be alive today if not for domestic violence and abuse.

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.
