Eating the Elephant Summary

Eating the Elephant by Alice Wells

This shocking, upsetting but ultimately inspiring true story sits firmly in the child-abuse genre, but also tackles the dark modern crisis of internet porn access in a frank and groundbreaking way. Alice, a dedicated doctor and mother of two, bravely tells the story of her marriage to a man hiding a terrible secret - one that he has drawn their 4-year-old daughter, Grace, into. As the shocking truth about their family life unfolds at a gripping pace, Alice struggles to learn how to survive the impact and piece together her shattered world. The devastation of what Alice is forced to face when her life is hit by catastrophic pain, and the trauma of wondering if she overlooked the signs, is laid bare in a way that will stay with you for a long time to come. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time... "Before you venture into the pages that follow I feel compelled to issue a health warning. I urge you to take reasonable protective steps in order that you are equipped to enter what is, in emotional terms, a hard-hat area..."
