Wholly Unraveled

Sometimes all that it takes to start over is the courage to say you will In Kathleen’s home red jeans were a sin Parties were punishable with violence Fear was part of the daily norm Growing up in a Catholic cult under the unforgiving eye of her abusive father Kathleen knew from an early age that if she were to survive she’d have to do it on her. TRIGGER WARNING Detailed descriptions of child abuse and rape If these are triggers for you think twice before reading this bookThis book was extremely frustrating to read I understand that people do not remember every detail of their childhood but when you are writing about it you need to provide some reason for the things that happen The first section of the book is a series of unrelated incidents connected only by the abuse meted out by Kathleen s father Kathleen is her birth name so she uses it through the book she does not explain how she comes to call herself Keele nor does she explain how it is pronounced which I found frustrating Although there are four girls in the family and later twin boys one of whom died as an infant apparently from SIDS but this is not discussed nor explained Kathleen is the chosen scapegoat for the family She alone is beaten whipped with a belt made to sleep in the garage etc And she alone is blamed for something that very likely was not her fault and view spoilerher father shot at her twice and missed it is not clear whether he missed on purpose or if he was just a bad shot Considering how far he took her into the desert it seems likely that he really did intend to kill her hide spoiler

OwnBut when the time came to escape she found herself in a damaging spiral of self destruction At rock bottom and with nowhere to go Kathleen stepped off a bus in the last place she ever thought she’d find peace a remote community in rural Canada Spending a year in almost complete silence Kathleen feared this experience would prove to be just anoth. This was a difficult read and left me with too many uestionswhy why why I found it ironic that she ran away from the abuse in one cult to only then find herself seeking help in another I do understand everyone has their own journey and Kathleen s journey was a tragic onevery tragic I m giving 25 stars for the unclear writing and lack of connecting the dots

    This was my First Reads pick for the month of MarchI'm honestly not sure how to feel about this book On one hand it was an engrossing story that grabbed onto me and didn't want to let me go until I finished it On the other hand there was so much self destruction and bouncing from one to cult to what sounded like another that I found myself getting annoyed Reading about her growing up was hard because she had no control o
