Wholly Unraveled

Er step in her unraveling Instead with her demons uieted she emerged with a fresh understanding of self an empowering new purpose and a sense of worthiness that she would never let be challenged again Wholly Unraveled is Keele Burgin’s gripping and inspiring journey of self discovery and of finally finding her voice against nearly insurmountable od. Totally engrossing but there s just too little resolution for the reader Researching the author after the fact it seems she goes on to do absolutely incredible things which prove the most amazing self growth and healing But how How does she leave Toronto and accomplish all these things with no family or money Does she ever meet up with her siblings again Why does she take her son to meet her father Did she ever make amends with Logan What happened to Grace There are just so many holes that make it a struggle to have closure I kudos the author for sharing her horrible tale and hope she publishes an after note with some answers

Keele Burgin ð 8 REVIEW

Sometimes all that it takes to start over is the courage to say you will In Kathleen’s home red jeans were a sin Parties were punishable with violence Fear was part of the daily norm Growing up in a Catholic cult under the unforgiving eye of her abusive father Kathleen knew from an early age that if she were to survive she’d have to do it on her. This was an First reads for MarchThis was such an odd reading experience on the one hand shocking descriptions of abuse leading to addiction and self destructive behaviour on the other all the characters including the narrator are so one dimensional large parts of the book don t ring uite trueI couldn t get a grip of her family was she the only child being abused and if so why Why were the parents ok with the daughters going to parties but not with her wearing jeans Has the author come to any kind of understanding of her family dynamics One specific episode that bothered me was after she gets arrested for having a party in the neighbours house her punishment is confinement to the pool house So a legitimate crime she was actually arrested for gets this soft treatment while wearing jeans gets her beaten with a stick Not saying it didn t happen this way but some kind of explanation would have been interestingAnd how did such a controlling family agree to send her away to college with no supervisionI also didn t understand why she later chose to enter a different cult like environment Did she really overcome addiction by doing laundry in silence and being locked up in a cabin in the woods After the outburst with the priest I expected some kind of revelation that she was just running from one oppressive religion to another but instead this is what shows her the way forwardAnd why did her father never contact her to bring her back into the fold before she went to live in the Madonna House How did he even know he would find her thereUltimately a somewhat interesting read but it left me with too many unanswered uestions

    TRIGGER WARNING Detailed descriptions of child abuse and rape If these are triggers for you think twice before reading this bookThis book was extremely frustrating to read I understand that people do not remember every detail of their childhood but when you are writing about it you need to provide some reason for the things that happen The first section of the book is a series of unrelated incidents connected

    Free from as part of the March First ReadsThe depictions of abuse are seriously rough and Kathleen's destructive behavior in the second section of the book is tough to watch But overall it's an uneven book How did she grow her life after leaving Madonna House? What is her current relationship with Shirley? With her siblings? Her parents?I read the acknowledgements just to see if there was some mention of her current life and if

    Keele Burgin went through a childhood that made mine look like 18 years at Disney World My father was an authoritarian Catholic man who always had to be right and we children were little bundles of Original Sin that needed to be corrected and molded into good people But he loved us He was consistent He played with us We just learned or tri

    This was my First Reads pick for the month of MarchI'm honestly not sure how to feel about this book On one hand it was an engrossing story that grabbed onto me and didn't want to let me go until I finished it On the other hand there was so much self destruction and bouncing from one to cult to what sounded like another that I found myself getting annoyed Reading about her growing up was hard because she had no control

    This is a gripping memoir and I read it in about 24 hours The abuse trauma and self destruction Kathleen Burgin writes about is vivid and shockingThe struggle for me is that it all feels a bit disjointed It’s storytelling without a resolutio
