Storkbites: A Memoir based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Here's a book for your book club or to read on your own. More thrilling than a spy novel, funnier than a comedy, Storkbites: A Memoir gives you a peek into the secrets of a wealthy Southern family where all is NOT well.
Author Marie Etienne moved me with her first novel Storkbites. I am an avid reader of memoirs and hers I could not put down. She brilliantly blended chapters from past to present and kept my interest. Her book made me laugh, cry and be angry at the life that she and her siblings had to live. I recommend this book highly to everyone to read. I can't wait for the author's next book.
Storkbites is an honest story about a woman (Marie Etienne) who survives many terrible things throughout her life such as murder, suicide, alcoholism, and an abusive mother. She makes a vow that she will not let her sons go through the same things that she had to go through as a child. I would definately recommend this book to you!
This book is captivating - the way the author flips back and forth from childhood incidents to dysfunction as an adult then ultimately understands how the two connect and relate to how she raises her own children is a true life lesson in how pain can be mended and the nasty family cycle of pain can be ebbed if not halted.
