About the book

Fallout” is the journey of an eight-year-old girl “in the wrong place at the wrong time.”  Her story takes us from trauma through years of repression, recovered memories, denial, coping, and living a life forever changed by one night of insanity.  It’s a unique reading experience that is bound to bring both laughter and tears.  Ultimately this is a story of healing through a lifetime of striving to rise above long -ago wounds."

Amy Harksen, M.S., LMHC

"Nancy Dahlhauser was my patient for nearly eight years.  Her story is a testimony to the endurance of the human spirit.  Survivors of childhood abuse, their family members, and individuals in the mental health services will transform their perspective by reading “Fallout:  memoir of a freckle face freak.”
