Review

"Incisive, courageous writing in a vivid family account that proves both sensitive and challenging . . . Illustrated with family photographs throughout, the memoir closes with an unexpected revelation and offers a message of hope and healing that will be of value to others who have faced similar circumstances." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Named Best Books of 2020


"Evocative of ...The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, Silence of Shame ...is a testament to how one's early life influences but doesn't define a person's life path....[and] teaches lessons about living with disease, struggling through abusive relationships that are also at times loving, and what courage it takes to blossom during dark periods." - Madison Butz, Development Manager - National Multiple Sclerosis Society

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
