That's how my father explained my genesis.
Mother's House Payment is the story of a little girl who was passed from one abuser to another until, after coping with isolation, neglect, and encounters with physical, sexual, and psychological violation, she snapped at the age of 13. She learns that her mother has passed on a genetic illness as a parting shot, and she must adjust to growing up with Bipolar Disorder.
As she approaches her 30th year, she works hard to pick up the loose threads of her life and tie them into a lifeline for her future. It is a tale of survival, endurance, and acceptance through understanding.
