the girl behind the doorThe Girl Behind The Door: A Father’s Journey Into The Mystery Of Attachment - is today’s free Kindle download from writer John Brooks. The memoir follows a father’s journey to understanding his adopted daughter’s tragic suicide:

A Marin County, California father embarks on a journey to understand what led his seventeen-year-old daughter, Casey, to take her life. He travels back to her abandonment at birth and adoption from a Polish orphanage at fourteen months, through her happy childhood and her turbulent adolescence, searching for answers. In most respects, Casey was a perfectly normal girl – beautiful, smart and popular, accepted at an elite college. But she also had troubling behaviors that no one understood, including mental health professionals. 

His search leads to a condition known as attachment disorder, an affliction common among children who have been abandoned, neglected or abused.

It explained everything.
