From the Publisher

Lillie dreamed of a normal life. But somewhere between hiding from her abusive father and taking care of the family’s many children, she found little time for such dreams. Witnessing the daily abuse and rape of her siblings, Lillie ponders the idea of a just God. Poverty and incest become words that would haunt her life. How could she ever find happiness? How could her many brothers and sisters forgive her for leaving them? The Center That We Seek is a true story of a woman’s struggle to understand the horrible abuse of her childhood. Set against the backdrop of rural West Virginia, a mother and daughter exchange tales of their lives, reconciling their frustrations by exposing the truth behind years of torment. Join the authors as they question the idea of family and love, all the while reinventing the power of hope.
