SEEKING NORMAL is a must read; a chronological narrative in which the author describes dramatic events over significant years with such bracing detail that you feel like you are walking the halls of the psychiatric ward with her on the night she's admitted.
As a child, she keeps secrets like her father's alcoholism, his mental illness, and her own homosexual trappings . . .
As an adult, her suspicions grow concerning her husband's subtle unnatural behavior around young female children but too naive and scared to know where or whom to turn, she doesn't reveal it . . .
A former teacher and Technical Writer, the author holds a BA degree in History and English (History-major / English-minor) and a Secondary Teaching Credential from San Jose State University in San Jose, California.
This book took root from her desire to offer solace to others in similar situations. Her final victory would not come until she took a notebook and pen to the kitchen table and moved all the events of her journey onto paper, where it was hard at first yet in time grew easier like a need to love once more. This done, she was given peace.
. . . should be required reading for junior and senior high school students.
