Eating the Elephant: Do you really know the man you married? (Paperback)Alice Wells (author)
- In stock
As seen on This Morning
A shocking true story about the impact of sexual abuse and rise of internet pornography.
At first glance, Alice Wells and her young children seem to be an ordinary family grieving the death of a father and husband in a tragic car accident. In reality, her story offers the reader a rarely told perspective: a mother's account of her husband's devastating addiction to internet child pornography, and how this dark world pierced the heart of her own home.
But Alice's story is about so much more than the impact of sexual abuse. This is not a depressing book, but a fascinating and insightful journey. As a doctor, as well as a wife and a mother, Alice eloquently and intelligently tackles her own complex feelings of bereavement, mourning a man she loved and set up a life with, while slowly having to reconcile herself to the unfolding knowledge of his hidden life as a paedophile.
At the centre of Alice's story lies the question that helped her through it all: How do you eat an elephant? How do you face and break down the unthinkable, the insurmountable?
