Some of the most compelling memoirs make their marks because they allow us access to what we know is the ugly, dysfunctional side of being in a family, no matter how brightly scrubbed and polished its exterior might be. So when someone you know writes a memoir, there is an extra dimension of interest full disclosure, Greenhouse is a friend Not only do you become privy to information they might not share in a prison cell, but its a personal invitation to look inside someones psyche and under the beds where all the dirty laundry and family secrets are whispering. Ten pages into Lucia Greenhouses fathermothergod, I knew that this book would deliver It was much than a persons disillusionment with her religion it was a soul searching, sometimes jaw dropping read about how dogmatic religion can splinter a family And it is a beautifully written account of how one woman set out to heal after walking away from the wreckage of her childhood. I knew very little about Christian Science, and in fact, of the religions history that I wanted came later in the book Other than the famous news items and a few horror stories Id heard in childhood about people refusing to go to the hospital, in the sixties the Christian Scientist religion seemed to me to lurk semi shamefully in the background, its interior rituals shrouded like todays Scientology. A lot of what Greenhouse has to say will, Im sure, anger the church And she never presents the tale as anything other than her version of events But she writes searingly about coming of age at a time when father knew best Raised by a dominant Christian Scientist healer father and a compliant mother, Greenhouse writes absorbingly about her familys inability to take aspirin or even get eyeglasses, due to their beliefs The reader wants to scoop her up and hug her, scold the parents for their inattention and blind devotion to doctrine at the expense of bloodlines and relationships. Greenhouse aptly sets the stage for her life the many moves, the well heeled trust fund background that presumably supports them, the private schools and lifestyle although I found myself wanting to know about this so that when her mother becomes ill and is isolated by Lucias father, you want to rail and weep at such unnecessary waste, the careless squandering of filial love. What haunted me about fathermothergod long after Id flown through the pages was the thought provoking conundrum in which religion had bound the children What if you didnt speak up What if your age, those precarious years between the teens and adulthood, made you second guess your loyalties What if a lifetime of parental obedience was in direct conflict with the horrors that unspooled before your eyes Greenhouse chronicles all of this in engrossing detail and the book reverberates with honesty, regret, pain, love, and then the resilience of a person determined, in the aftermath of tragedy, to write her own lifes next chapter I heartily recommend this read. fathermothergod is a heart wrenching coming of age memoir about the implosion of a family when Christian Science dogma encounters a mother s grave illness It s impossibleto read this and not put yourself in the author s shoesthis will take your breath away.Lee Woodruff, author of Perfectly Imperfect and In an InstantA riveting and heart rending memoir, fathermothergod My Journey Out of Christian Science exposes the monstrous feats of neglect fostered by this strange American manifestation of religious fanaticism Tracing her mothers decline and its lacerating consequences, Lucia Greenhouse knows the truth about Christian Science, and she tells it with passionate, righteous indignation.Caroline Fraser, Gods Perfect Child Living and Dying in the Christian Science Church A powerfully affecting memoir Greenhouses skill in rendering family relationships under the intersecting stresses of illness and conflicting beliefs make the book worthwhile reading Wrenchingly courageous Kirkus ReviewsThrough this memoir, readers will see how even those closest to us can remain a mystery Booklist From the Hardcover edition.
