This story captivated me from the beginning to the end.  The characters in the story are so well defined that  I can sympathize with Sara and yes, even Garrison.  I admire Sara because she is able to succeed in her own career in spite of all her obstacles that she acquired growing up.  The writer details each scenario of Sara's mind and thoughts as she reflects & struggles with her past as a child. As a reader one can sense the fear in Sara when being confronted in anyway with "the monster" which by the way is a great term to describe him.  The issue of illness and death are very well defined in this book and as a reader I emphasize with these characters.

Closure By: Sylvia Stein I started reading this book and could not put it down. I loved it. Characters are all well written. Wasn't sure I liked the character Garrison but as the story went I got to love the guy. Sylvia did a great job showing all sides to abuse. I liked how the story of each character is shown, not just the one being abused. This is a journey of what this family went through. From things being great for Garrison James and his family to the day the word cancer came into the family. The death of the mother and the depending on alcohol to get him through a day. Sara is the one who will pay for this. How can Sara grow up with all the mental scars she carries of the abuse from the monster (her father)? Will Sara find closure? Wonderful must read book.. 5 stars
