The Source of all Things by Tracy Ross

I received this book as an advance reading copy from Free Press and let me state that it is definitely five stars.

Tracy was molested but never penetrated by her stepfather from the time she was eight until she was fifteenish. The memoir takes you through her trials an tribulations. Tracy talks about how she was not given the proper tools and how to this day she doesn't trust her "daddy" around her sons. She gets up the nerve to try and confront her stepfather on a hiking trip for just the two of them only to find out that she was molested more than she knew because her "daddy" drugged her with sleeping.

The story is not just a memoir but also sad tale of what really happens in many child welfare agencies. 

5 stars

  1. Sounds like a difficult topic. Amazing she had the courage to write her memoir. I love memoirs and am waiting for representation. Thanks for reviewing Tracy's book.
