Excavating Pieces is a quietly touching memoir of growing up in a home under the thumb of a rageful, sadistic and sexually abusive stepfather.  Written with understated grace by Patrick Husted, I highly recommend this book.  Patrick is a former patient and when we worked together, I was often amazed and moved by how he survived the abusive landscape of his childhood with both resilience and dignity.  I hope you'll give yourself the opportunity to read this touching life story.
