Book: Rag Dolls and Rage
Author: Sheila E. Tucker
Rag Dolls and Rage is the true story of a small child who lived with grandparents and teenaged aunts near the English seaside. Her happy life consisted of hugs, sandcastles and helping Nana to bake. However, at age four, her mother returned and took her away. A man her mother insisted she call “Daddy” abused Sheila. Eventually, an aunt rescued her. This is Sheila’s coming-of-age journey through fear and brokenness, towards peace and love. She grew up and travelled the world to escape her past, before finally revisiting the painful memories, seeking therapy and writing this powerful memoir of hope.
