5. If her publisher had any integrity

they should not ever reprint the book.

How many unfortunate women will read crap like she wrote and think they have to put up with abuse as a "growth experience?"

She also writes that she witnessed her father abuse her mother very badly, I'm sorry she is replaying the cycle in her own life, but it is irresponsible to have a memoir out there glorifying what her abuser did to her as somehow "liberating".

And she also says that it caused her to reexamine her former anti-conservative views, which gives some insight into the twisted rationale of the conservative woman. The whole thing is awful.
