Because I Remember Terror, Father, I Remember You destroys our complacency about who among us can commit unspeakable atrocities, who is subjected to them, and who can stop them. From age four to eighteen, Sue William Silverman was repeatedly sexually abused by her father, an influential government official and successful banker. Through her eyes, we see an outwardly normal family built on a foundation of horrifying secrets that long went unreported, undetected, and unconfessed.

Review: Because I Remember Terror, Father, I Remember You

User Review  - Heather - Goodreads

I don't care much for the title of this book, or the last two sections. However the first part was very disturbing. Defintely not for the sensitive. Good writing and an engaging story. I do wish there was a bit more closure though, but I guess in life sometimes there is not. Read full review
