Mickey and Katie share a strange bond; Mickey’s abuse of alcohol and drugs almost costs his life, and Katie’s alcoholic demon is Bob, her father and abuser.
As Mickey faces his mortality, he questions his sexuality, a battle he thought he’d won in his relationship with Jamie. When their one-year liaison crumbled, so did Mickey.
Katie fears her father’s threatening presence, always hyper-alert, her hands a daily reminder of his propensity for evil.
Soon, Mickey must face the women in his life – his sister who outed him, and his mother, who rejected him. Then another death rocks his world, and Mickey must seriously explore who he is and assume responsibility for his life.
On Katie’s 25th birthday, she must confront her fears and make vital decisions about her future, including the “blood money” inheritance that she doesn’t want, but Bob does.
This is a story of two compelling quests of the mind and spirit. Mickey, seeking to find his self-identity, accept his sexuality, and own his maturity. Katie, needing to feel safe, finding her inner courage, and escaping the stranglehold of her abusive father.
Their stories will warm your heart long after the last page.
