Teaser Tuesday: The First Day of the Rest of My Life




Always, always, I have known that there are secrets in my family, lies, if you will, loving lies, cover-up lies, but lies all the same.  With my grandma's dementia, however, those lies are being exposed, via the scratches, dents, and blood on a violin my momma gave me, who received it from Grandma.
-- The First Day of the Rest of My Life by Cathy Lamb.
It is no spoiler to say that this is a book about two sisters who are very successful on the surface, but carry the scars of child abuse.  Since I work with clients every day who are survivors of childhood sex abuse -- many who become overachievers -- I am gripped by this story.  
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
