Praise for Under My Roof:
"Under My Roof is a brave, compelling and necessary story of one mother's attempt to protect her daughter in an era before there was real help available. We have very few accounts of incest from the perspective of the mother, and Emalou King has given us a heartbreakingly honest book that takes us through the suffering and into healing. This story will be supportive for all mothers whose children have been abused; for all survivors of abuse who want to understand more about their mothers, and it should be required reading for every professional who works with families in which incest has taken place."
