    A poignant survival story of life lessons learned. A must read

    I don't know when I've read a memoir that so clearly pictures the two truths, 'The way we raise and treat our children radiates across generations,' and 'How we treat others determines the way we are remembered.' Bill Reed's compelling narrative of his trauma as a boy trapped in a loveless family draws us into his quest for his origins and survival. At first, his life was happy as a seven year old, but it became a turmoil when his father returned from Hawaii. Drinking, arguing by parents in a loveless marriage and mind games played at their children's expense became normal to him as the family made a trek across America in World War ll. He became an unloved boy when his uncaring alcoholic father shunned him and his mom didn't know how to love, teach or prepare him for life's challenges. He was on his own lonely, lost and confused. How was he to learn if no one would teach? As he finds his way, Reed laces his boyish escapades with humor, the conflicts with clarity, and gratitude to those who, unknowingly, helped him find his way as a struggling young adult. * * * Safe Harbor A Boy's Story is a well written look at a dysfunctional family. I found it hard to put down, and recommend it for all ages from youths learning about life, to seniors recalling forgotten memories of years past.
