Change Me Into Zeus’s Daughter

Barbara Moss wrote “Change Me into Zeus’s Daughter” which tells about her life growing up with an abusive and alcoholic father. If something were not well in her father’s life he would take it out on Barbara or her mother. Her father would come home drunk on various nights at three o’clock P.M. and would wake up everyone in the house. He would make everyone clean house and was cars.

One time Barbara’s father shot the family dog and also a pony, which they had only had for a very short time.
Her book, “Change Me Into Zeus’s Daughter”, starts out with her father leaving to go to Pennsylvania in hope of getting a new job, which he had recently lost.
