White Elephants #WhtElephts
Chynna T. Laird
Elephant in the middle of the living room. That is one way of explaining how a family walks around the invisible presence of huge problems. This candid memoir is a story of one girl's struggle to deal with her mother's alcoholic/bipolar condition--the white elephant no one else would see. With a conversational tone, Laird shares her remarkable story of abuse, survival, and her triumphant recovery into becoming a healthy, well adjusted wife and mother. Tastefully written, this book will touch your heart. It offers hope that, no matter where you come from, life is what you make it.
