About this product
- DescriptionIn this true tale, Molly, w a grandmother in her seventies, tells the story of her real-life experiences in the sex trade in a series of graphic and lurid flash-backs. As the tranquil world of this mature and seemingly well-balanced woman is suddenly shattered by unexpected outbursts of bizarre and debilitating behavior, Molly's daughter, Carin, is totally bewildered by her mother's strange antics. Carin has always had a good relationship with her mother, but kws thing of Molly's past. Molly's friends are equally confused, but little by little, her story becomes clear: how Molly became enamored of the sex trade and how that lifestyle was deeply ingrained in her personality. Her journey into darkness is long and arduous. Exposed to sex far too soon because of her mother's poor influence and bad example, Molly grew up around sex workers who groomed her for the life. Patrons exploited and abused her. When her father returned from his service in World War II, she hoped that he would help her off the path she had taken-only to have her dreams shattered. Instead of protecting her, he took advantage of her youth and promiscuity for his own financial gain. Molly is forced to do the unthinkable to gain control of her life. Told from the perspective of a survivor looking back and recovering from her experiences, In My Father's House offers a unique and heartrending view of a girl growing up in the shadows of the sex trade.
