Wounds of the Father: A True Story of Child Abuse by Elizabeth Garrison

My name is Dr. Elizabeth Garrison and I recently published my memoir, Wounds of the Father: A True Story of Child Abuse, Betrayal, and Redemption. I would welcome your support in getting my story out in the world. I believe that one of the best way we can break the cycle of abuse and its damaging effects is to share our stories.

Here’s the book description:

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.
