Chanel Bonfire by Wendy Lawless is a refreshingly honest yet hor
Wendy Lawless and her sister, Robin, had a childhood that no child should have to live through. Their mother was a drunk who endlessly played the victim. She had many tumultuous affairs which eventually led to a nervous breakdown which she would take out on her children, lock herself in her bedroom for weeks on end wearing a blue nightie, attempt suicide, and ultimately led the family to relocate to another high society area. Wendy was the protector of the family. She tried to shield her sister from the harsh realities of their childhood. Can Wendy and her sister get out from under the power of their mother?
It is hard to imagine the life that these children were dealt and that no one did anything to help them. Even though they led a life a luxury, the horrors that hid behind the door make no one envy them. This is a powerful memoir showcasing the life one can lead after breaking the chains of abuse.
