Author Dorriah Rogers shares her life story cemented in a traumatic childhood in Twine: A Memoir. Jumping around from childhood to her college years to adulthood, Rogers shares the harshest and most heartbreaking details of her life.
When We Were Brave tells of three very different characters and their very different stories of bravery during tragedy and hardship. With WWII as the backdrop, the three stories are each told from a unique point of view: through the eyes of a child, an SS officer, and a German-American. The child, Izaak, the son of a Jewish man, experiences the challenges of losing his father and then being sent to multiple concentration camps.
Twine is a poignant memoir centered around Dorriah Rogers as she shares the most honest and eye-opening moments in her life. She gives the readers her soul, inviting them into a world filled with dysfunction, abuse, and as puzzling as it may seem, love. Rogers unpacks her baggage and states, “It was the telling of this story that allowed me to remove that backpack of horrors from my shoulders. It was the writing of the words, the release of the shame, that was ultimately cathartic and healing.”
