Description

Many thousands of readers were moved by Richard B. Pelzer's heart-wrenching memoir, A Brother's Journey, in which he detailed the horrifyingly abusive childhood he endured at the hands of his mother, whose treatment of her children was first revealed by Dave Pelzer in his own hugely successful memoir, A Boy Called "It". Now, Richard reveals how the abuse inflicted on him as a child continued to affect his life as a teenager. He turned to drugs and contemplated suicide, while simultaneously trying to establish an autonomous life away from his destructive family situation. Yet as he stumbled toward adulthood, fighting and facing his demons, Richard's ultimate struggle toward victory was his alone. His salvation finally came when a surrogate family took him in, offering comfort, hope, and unconditional love —and ultimately the transformational power of forgiveness.
