I’ve read several books about intense abuse over the years, but none have affected me so deeply. I have found myself thinking about this book often in the past week since I finished it. Empty Chairs is the true-life story of Stacy Danson. Her story begins with her earliest memories of severe abuse. She chronicles her struggles, her perseverance, and her bravery in the face of unbelievable pain and uncertainty. As I read Empty Chairs, I remembered my own childhood, what my family was like, my friends, experiences in school, etc. and then tried to imagine myself living the horror that was Stacy Danson’s childhood and I feel a tightness in my chest. I can’t imagine it. As I finished the book, I felt an intense wish to hear more about her life. I don’t believe that I can truly express how much I admire Stacy Danson. Thank you so much to Stacy for finding the courage to share her story.
