#1 Amazon Bestseller
In the bestselling tradition of Smashed and Glass Castle, this raw, eye-opening memoir tells the powerful story of Elizabeth Garrison’s fractured childhood, descent into teenage drug addiction, and struggle to overcome nearly insurmountable odds.
Elizabeth invites the reader behind the closed doors of a picture-perfect Christian family to reveal a dark, hidden world of child abuse, domestic violence, and chilling family secrets all performed in the name of God under the tyrannical rule of her father. Like countless teenage girls, Elizabeth turns to drugs and alcohol to escape. With smack-you-in-the-face honesty, Elizabeth chronicles the dark realities and real-life horrors of teenage drug abuse, living on the streets, foster homes, and treatment centers. She paints an unsparing portrait of scratching and clawing her way out of the grips of child abuse, addiction, and betrayal to find the strength within herself to save her own life.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Wounds of the Father is a book that I will not forget. Garrison’s story touched my heart and has given me a better understanding of people in my own family. This is a book for anyone who is even remotely curious about drugs or has been abused. It is also a book that shows that change in one’s life is possible.
Elizabeth Garrison is truly an angel sent to us to show us what it’s like in the darkness and how we can find the light if only we reach for a hand. Read this book. You will be changed.
Outstanding, well-written and compelling book that will keep you from putting it down until the end. I was amazed to read some of the trials that Elizabeth went through, somehow making it to the next day time and again.
Before reading this story I had never understood what it was like to in the grips of addiction. Knowing people who suffer from an addiction to drugs, reading this book has helped me relate to them in ways I never would have thought I could before. A must read story!
I love this book because it is so honest and it shows one powerful point. You can promise the world you will do better, but the only person you have to prove something to is yourself. Great book!!
