About this product
- DescriptionThe Godhand Women's Home houses two hundred of South Florida's most desperate young women, and what begins as Leila Sudders' refuge from her turbulent past quickly becomes a distorted mirror of her own darkness, so she does what she does best as she awaits her child's birth: close up. But despite her waning efforts, her toughness carves a path of treacherous consequence that intensifies as her due date draws near, which erupts when she crosses four other desperate women suffering from borderline personality disorder, PTSD, and schizophrenia. One of the five, thirtysomething missionary counselor Diana, fights tooth and nail to offer the others the strength to overcome their demons.
- Author BiographyCamille Burke is an MSW social worker with experience as a clinician, medical social worker, medical case manager, counselor, and outpatient therapist.

She has been writing fiction and non-fiction stories since she was seven; it's always been her passion. She won several poetry contests as a child; and she was so inspired in high school by William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, she wrote a poem commencing their love.
