The Grammy- and Academy Award- nominated singer-songwriter's haunting, lyrical memoir, sharing the story of an unthinkable act of violence and ultimate healing through art
Mobile, Alabama, 1986. A fourteen-year-old girl is awakened by the unmistakable sound of gunfire. On the front lawn, her father has shot and killed her mother before turning the gun on himself. Allison Moorer would grow up to be an award-winning musician, with her songs likened to 'a Southern accent: eight miles an hour, deliberate, and very dangerous to underestimate' (Rolling Stone). But that moment, which forever altered her own life and that of her older sister, Shelby, has never been far from her thoughts. Now, in her journey to understand the unthinkable, to parse the unknowable, Allison uses her lyrical storytelling powers to lay bare the memories and impressions that make a family, and that tear a family apart.
Blood delves into the meaning of inheritance and destiny, shame and trauma -- and how it is possible to carve out a safe place in the world despite it all. With a foreword by Allison's sister, Grammy winner Shelby Lynne, Blood reads like an intimate journal: vivid, haunting, and ultimately life-affirming.

I listended to Shelby Lynne on a Daryl's House episode she is a wonderful singer and song writer. The show had a Christmas theme and Daryl hall commented Shelby wrote the saddest Christmas song he had ever heard and I was curious to find out more about her. Here sister Allison Moorer, also a wonderful singer, wrote the saddest book I have ever read. I do not want to give away the story of the book ,but their father was was so deplorable to his beautiful wife and daughters that I could not finish the book it was just too sad. I think Allison is a good writer the story was just unbearable
