Book Clubs of America:

"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 other, 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, their mothers, and it should be required reading for every professional who works with families in which incest has taken place."

   ~Ellen Bass, Author of  "The Courage to Heal: A Guide for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse" (Harper-Collins 1983) co-authored with Laura Davis; and  "The Human Line" (Cooper Canyon Press 2007); Mules of Love (BOA, 2002) which won the Lambda Literary Award; Featured on the March/April 2011 cover of the American Poetry Review.
