Author: S. Jane Gari
Title: Losing the Dollhouse
Publisher: Touch Point Press
At 19, Jane finally worked up the nerve to expose the truth about her stepfather's sexual advances, and her mother was outraged. But not at the stepfather. Her mother took his side-a betrayal that threatened to destroy the family and left Jane struggling to forge her own identity as she entered adulthood. Once marriage was on the table, Jane packed up her life and resolved to stare her demons down. Losing the Dollhouse offers a slice of dysfunctional Americana complete with divorce, step-families, eating disorders, mental illness and the search for true love.
Praise for Losing the Dollhouse:
"It takes tremendous courage and strength to share the most vulnerable parts of our lives with the world. I thank S. Jane Gari for giving a voice to important issues and victims that are all too often ignored."
--Ashley Rhodes-Courter, Author of the International Bestseller, Three Little Words
“Gari matter-of-factly and without sentimentality shares the silenced horrors she endured from her stepfamily and a mother who allowed it. I found myself cheering for her as she navigates her way toward a voice of her own.”
--Kerry Cohen, author of Loose Girl: A Memoir of Promiscuity
“Gari has written a beautiful, bighearted book on family secrets, memory, and most of all, the power of love and forgiveness.”
– Mary Elizabeth Williams, Author of Gimme Shelter and Stage 5: A True Story of Love, Cancer, Science, and Survival
