For a long time, Edie thought she had escaped. It started in an Appalachian trailer park, where a young girl dreamed of becoming a doctor. But every day, Edie woke up to her reality: a poverty-stricken world where getting out seemed impossible. Where, at twelve years old, she taught herself to drive a truck so she could get her drunk daddy home from the bar. Where the grownups ate while the children went hungry. Where, when the family trailer burned down, she couldnt be caught squawlin over losing her thingsshe just had to be grateful anyone had remembered to save her at all.
And at the center of it all, there was her daddy. She never knew when he would show up; she learned the hard way that she couldnt count on him to protect her. But it didnt matter: All she wanted was to make him proud. Against all odds, Edie made doctor, achieving everything that had once seemed beyond her reach. But her past caught up with herand it would take her whole life burning down once again for Edie to be finally able to face the truth about herself, her family, and her relationship with God. Readers of The Glass Castle will treasure this refreshing and raw redemption story, a memoir for anyone who has ever hungered for home, forgiveness, and the safe embrace of a fathers love.
