The Sergeant’s Daughter
by Teressa Shelton
Critiquing a memoir is always tricky, especially one that includes allegations of abuse. I think Teressa was treated very unfairly, I am deeply sorry that this happens to anyone, and I really admire her for surviving what had to have been horrific.
I read this entire book in one day and it’s not a short story. The writing style is engaging and the story is so engrossing, and yes, disturbing at times. It doesn’t get too graphic, but there are definitely some heartbreaking moments and I got very invested in the fate of each sister.
I probably won’t read it again, but it was definitely worth reading once.
My rating: 4 stars
