I picked up this book, interested in how Dunker coped with family dysfunction in a Christian family with a famous father. It is a story laced with yearning.
After finishing the book, I had a glimpse of the inner fault-lines of this family; but reading it did not help me in my own journey to wholeness. Marilee is respectful in her honest appraisal of her family, but I still wonder why she needed to write a book about it.
I think many of us could write memoirs of pain and disappointment from our childhood. That pain seems magnified when the parent is glorified by all those around you.
