This story is full of twists and turns and kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish.
The narrator was a bit off putting each time he would speak in a “woman’s” voice. It detracted from the story and I would suggest if you are able to read the book that truly would be preferable for full enjoyment
I recommend this book and look forward to reading more from this author

If you ever wondered how to create a monster, look no further. Mary your recounting of this family history showed an ethical review of your unethical family.
First I have to say I’m sorry for the loss of your father. His alcoholism was a direct result of having grown up in such a sick family. I truly believe he really tried his best for you your brother and mother but some powers are just too hard to fight against.
Your book showed how your uncle became the monster he is and explains a lot of what the world is witnessing today
I’m sure this was not easy for you to write but I also know it is exceptionally important. Thank you

This book clearly explains the multi levels of systemic racism. Don’t read it just once read it many times.

I am an educated white woman. Prior to the murder of George Floyd I began to read about the black experience. I had asked questions but the frustration of realities I could not understand fully brought angry, unsatisfying. I needed to hear honest answers that came from the heart. I read several books like Born a Crime and Becoming. I visited the online Jim Crow museum and followed its links.
I heard Mr Sellers talking about racism (in the aftermath of the George Floyd murder)with Don Lemon and immediately bought his book. ,
These books left me feeling hopeful for permanent change and made me a lot ashamed because I never saw myself as radish and still don’t but I also never thought myself ignorant which I now do.
Thank you for teaching me important things. I will continue my learning
But you give me hope

This book provides an important story of tenacity, survival and grit that we don’t often hear. It’s important to fully understand all aspects of survival despite the hands of the Nazi efforts to exterminate us all.
Victimization and survival come in many forms. We can’t forget the lessons they teach us.
Narration was amazing. Thank you for telling this story Edith
