Praise for The Sergeant’s Daughter
“Shelton hails from an extremely dysfunctional family, but, miraculously, she survives intact. People in seemingly hopeless situations may take solace.” ―Booklist
This book proved to be just as powerful of a read as I expected it to be. More so, actually, when I really think about it. I was initially drawn to this story because I instantly knew I would relate. While I did not grow up in a military family, or with a father who was willing to go to the extremes seen in this book, I was instantly able to relate back to some of the things in this story with growing up.
This story is definitely a tough one to get through. It deals with really difficult topics and lays it all on the table, forcing you to take a glimpse into what some people must go through. It’s a very stark and in your face kind of book and Shelton refuse to relent. She tells you everything just how it was and truly shows that some things never leave us.
This memoir is one of those, perhaps brutally, honest looks into the psyche of growing up in both an emotionally and physically abusive household. But there is a light at the tunnel, as Shelton proves with how successful she has become in life. While what happens between these pages may haunt you, Shelton is right there with you sharing and baring a piece of her soul. You will feel anger, horror, and many other emotions but this is the type of story that must be told.
