I haven't read the book but plan to do it in the near future. The thing about living in an abusive home throughout one's childhood is that the brain eventually learns to block out certain memories or change them as one gets older . This is a well established scientific fact. This change in memories is how some survive abusive childhoods and are called "resilient " by psychologists. The doubting by those who did not live the nightmare but read about it is why many people never report or talk about abuse.
