Based on a tragically sad but true story, Behind Those Doors captures the horror of a young girl facing incest, HIV/AIDS, family suicide, and her own ultimate death. This family went from having genuine and loving relationships to the deepest of emotional turmoil fueled by alcohol and lust. The diagnoses and death of a young teenage girl's mother due to cancer drove her father to be insanely attracted to whiskey and his daughter. These pages attempt to portray the physical and emotional pain Lia suffered as she carried the secrets of what truly happened behind the doors of the family home. In many long and personally shattering conversations with the author, the horror of this young girl's life becomes apparent. Often horrible physical, mental, and sexual abuse goes on "behind closed doors" due to the inertia of fear on the part of the victim, who is unable to help herself. Lia wanted others to know her story based on the hope that our schools, social services, medical, and legal system could more easily recognize the symptoms of a totally dysfunctional family and provide the help desperately needed in such situations. In the words of one editor, "Such a sad story is difficult understand, but these stories happen more often than society wishes to admit." The emotion of this story made it very difficult to write and maybe just as hard to read. Here it is.
