Debra Roberts Torres-Reyes

In this memoir, the author recounts her youthful struggles with religious fanaticism.
Torres-Reyes describes how being raised in a fiercely religious household in which both parents
were devout evangelicals caused her torment as a youth and panic attacks and depression as an
adult. With extreme candor and wit, she details her childhood as the daughter of a female
Evangelical Minister and her ultimate triumph in finding a connection with God that did not include
fear and self-loathing.
