“Belongs in the top rank of beautifully crafted memoirs.” — Robert Jagoda, The Ghost of My Father. “Tears open the heart and allows us to walk through the fire.” — Hank Whittemore, Emmy Award-winning writer, author and producer. “Just plain scary.” — Crystal Adkins, Reviews by Crystal. In 1977 Carol Zanetti traveled with her then-husband, an itinerant minister and cruelly abusive father and spouse, and their three children on an ultimately disastrous mission to South Korea to found a school for destitute children of American and European servicemen overseas, a journey that opened her eyes both to the horrors faced by Amerasians, whose suffering and scars eerily mirrored her own, and to the personal demons that had led her to take that blind leap of faith, then followed her home.
Legacy of Guilt is the dramatic, unflinching story of an abused and traumatized little girl who grows up to find redemption and eventual peace in an unexpected place: the sad faces and tortured lives of Amerasians overseas.
