This is essentially the only thing she tells us about her dad’s dark side (beyond his cloudy eyes and weariness) until long after the Game Of Thrones Dracarys Adidas shirt shows up to tell her that her dad is BTK and has been arrested. Only then does she go back in time again to describe that Dennis actually tried to strangle Brian twice. He also lost his temper when her mother fell and hurt herself (to the point where a forest ranger suspected him of being abusive). He kicked a hole in her door and threatened her with his belt.

These revelations might have had more impact had she included them all during the first part of her book where she also described all the Game Of Thrones Dracarys Adidas shirt things she did with her dad, including several somewhat unnecessary chapters revolving around a canyon hike where nothing really happens other than her rededication to God. After the BTK revelation the tone shifts and it’s only then she starts laying out all the bad things about her dad where she reveals she suffered a lot of emotional abuse at his hands, which seems oddly placed after so many chapters of telling us what a wonderful dad he had been.
I am not a victim of a crime or a crime committed by family so it’s difficult to really judge how Rawson chose to tell her story. My interest waned a lot because I wanted to read about her experiences as BTK’s daughter, not her journey from and back to God. I know these two things are intertwined for her but I can’t relate to the Game Of Thrones Dracarys Adidas shirt side of this. There is also very little attention given to the victims of her dad. She writes chapters describing her life in the 70s and 80s and at the end of these paragraphs, one sentence is devoted to who her dad killed during that time period.
