Maybe this book struck a little too close to home or maybe the timing was wrong but it left me sad in a blank kind of way that was perhaps intentional The impression it left mirrors the underlying themes of the book loneliness abandonment the longing to understand the past and the knowledge that there are some pains we will never understand no matter how hard we try I went back and forth with this book There were times when the author sounded like a peevish child with an ax to grind and I wanted to throw the book down There were times she was a wounded child and I waited to see her come out on top And finally there is the adult who has learned to make her own needs a priority and let others have their mistakes to either own or forget My biggest disappointment was that there was such a heavy focus on her teen years and such a detached focus on her father's Alzheimer's I was under the mistaken impression that this would be a book about the conflicting sense of duty and the daily battle against the long goodbyeIf that is the book you're seeking this isn't it If you're seeking a triumphant rise above dysfunction it does serve that purpose in an off handed way Because we know so little of her present day life we don't know if she has grown as a person or not Certainly she seems resigned to never having the relationship she wanted with her father but I'm missing the character arc perhaps because this is a memoir and real life is messier than fiction This book was a worthwhile read but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone I like to be left with something to ponder some deeper understanding or changed perspective But it felt like a writer exorcising her demons on the page Unfortunately I don't think she's conuered them fully and I have no clear understanding how she managed to survive such a horrific childhood A disappointing unsettling read
